Eighth Blackbird combines science and music

If can you say one thing about Chicago’s eighth blackbird, it’s that this ain’t your Grandpa’s chamber music! Since 1996, the ensemble has been redefining the notion and the sound of the chamber ensemble. Key to their mission is the commissioning of new works by both well-known and up-and-coming composers. The two-time Grammy Award-winning group joins us in our Jim & Kay Mabie Performance Studio. Photo Courtesy of Eighth Blackbird
