The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series has always been a place to curate new ideas, inviting legendary artists to share their music in new and original formats. Their fifth season was just announced today, and the shows opening this fall promise to continue lacing together their experimental traditions within the contemporary musical landscape.
Highlights of the run include Poliça sharing the stage with Berlin’s s t a r g a z e on November 18 at the Fitzgerald Theater, for a performance called Music For the Long Emergency. The collaboration is inspired by The Long Emergency, a book dealing with the effects of climate change.
We'll have to wait nearly a year to welcome TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe in May 2017. The iconic artist will be at the Walker's William and Nadine McGuire Theater to share A Warm Weather Ghost, a piece that includes song, story, and animation. The work features a cast of special guest musicians and vocalists, and features visual art by Adebimpe.
