Eighth Blackbird @ People's Symphony

  DSC00252It was only about 1/2 full at Washington Irving High School last night for the final subscription concert of the People's Symphony this season, featuring Chicago's Grammy Award-winning eighth blackbird. Which is too bad, because the bluehairs missed an amazing concert that was both challenging and engaging, both musically and visually. Highlights: Marc Mellits serene "Spam" (1995), Missy's "Still Life With Avalanche" (2008) and Stephen Hartke's "Meanwhile" (2007), which called on them to play from memory, moving about the stage in some kind of pseudo-choreography.
