Over the course of more than two decades, Eighth Blackbird has continued to push at the edges of what it means to be a contemporary chamber ensemble, presenting distinct programs in Chicago and throughout the world, reaching audiences in the tens of thousands. The Chicago Tribune has hailed the group as “one of the smartest, most dynamic contemporary classical ensembles on the planet.” This program features works by Nina Shekhar, composer of Ice 'n' SPICE, as well as Fjjólla Evans, Andy Akiho, Holly Harrison, Jessie Marino, Viet Cuong, Bailey Holland, and Julius Eastman.
