Town Music

Town Music’s 2014-15 Season

Town Music Artistic Director Joshua Roman has announced his series’ five-concert 2014-15 season — and it’s destined to become a classic all its own.

With its trademark out-of-the-box focus on classical music — and inventive, modern-day flair — Town Music’s season opens Sept. 23 with a handful of favorite piano quartets. New and old, these selections will be performed by some fabulous musicians, including Roman himself.

Next up: NOW Ensemble’s mixture of chamber music and “pop-honed concision” might provide a few rhythmic surprises (Nov. 5); new media meets energetic rock and classical music with the grooving sounds of Third Coast Percussion (Jan. 12); Town Music favorite Bill Kalinkos (clarinet) returns as a member of Deviant Septet — the modern-day version of Stravinsky’s “L’histoire du Soldat” ensemble (March 25); and the season concludes with John Adams’ popular “Shaker Loops,” paired with other compositions of the era, in a special performance with featured guests (June 27).

Or join the Town Music Aficionados, a subscription circle for fans of Town Hall’s chamber music program curated by Joshua Roman. Aficionado subscriptions start at $300 and include invitations to all post-concert receptions, VIP concert seating, complimentary tickets to Town Hall’s annual Mozart Birthday Toast, and much more.

Deviant Septet is not your typical classical music ensemble. By bringing to life the vision of Stravinsky’s “L’histoire du Soldat” ensemble, their goal is to attract modern audiences to this little-known — and nearly nonexistent — combination of instruments.
