eighth blackbird's Mini Residency
October 8, 2013
Eighth blackbird, the three-time Grammy winning contemporary chamber music ensemble founded by alumni of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, returned to campus last week to begin a mini-residency and collaboration with Oberlin’s Contemporary Music Ensemble (CME).
On Friday, October 4, eighth blackbird joined CME in a performance featuring original works by Oberlin faculty members Tom Lopez and Peter Swendsen, as well as composer-in-residence Benjamin Broening.
The ensemble will reunite with CME for an October 27 performance at the University of Richmond as part of Third Practice, an annual festival of electroacoustic music and mixed media that was founded by Broening.
