Performance Santa Fe<br>Eighth Blackbird

Four-time Grammy Award-winning new music ensemble Eighth Blackbird makes its Santa Fe debut with an eclectic program of career highlights spanning 25 years. Regarded as “one of the smartest, most dynamic contemporary classical ensembles on the planet” (Chicago Tribune), Eighth Blackbird first gained international attention in 1998 as the winners of the Concert Artists Guild Competition. Over the last two decades, this Chicago-based sextet has earned its status as a brand name defined by adventure, vibrancy, and quality. They were named Musical America’s 2017 Ensemble of the Year and in 2016 were the inaugural recipients of Chamber Music America’s Visionary Award, as well as the prestigious MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions.
