Wild Up

Stave Sessions
Crystal Ballroom Somerville Th - Crystal Ballroom

Los Angeles-based ensemble Wild Up creates mind-bending and theatrical contemporary music experiences by playing with place, structure, the relation of artist to audience: any aspect of the concert experience is up for reinvention at any time. 

Called “a raucous, grungy, irresistibly exuberant … fun-loving, exceptionally virtuosic family” by Zachary Woolfe of the New York Times, Wild Up has been lauded as one of classical music’s most exciting groups of young musicians. Led by Founder and Artistic Director Christopher Rountree, the collective at once upholds and spontaneously redefines the notion of a traditional ensemble.

This performance is part of Stave Sessions.

“...a radical California chamber collective of composers, performers, and improvisers whose imagination and ambition seem boundless.”
