About this Event

ABOUT THE SHOW

Named “Chicagoans of the Year” in 2017 by the Chicago Tribune, the Spektral Quartet close out their 2018/19 season with Dubious Claims & Hidden Talents: The Spektral Quartet Talent Show – a concert with an unusual hook: the audience is the headliner. Featuring a preposterous variety of acts culled from an open, online audition, this upside-down concert includes Spektral performing a world premiere by composer LJ White – reimagining The Shaggs cult classic “My Pal Foot Foot” – as well as an intoxicating, danceable set by Chicago’s own synth assassins, Iverson.

SPEKTRAL QUARTET

www.spektralquartet.com

Two-time Grammy award nominees, the Spektral Quartet actively pursues a vivid conversation between exhilarating works of the past and the extraordinary works of today. With the New York Times writing that, “they have everything: a supreme technical command that seems to come easily, a capacity to make complicated music clear, and, most notably...an ability to cast a magic spell”, Spektral is regarded as one of the boldest ensembles working today.

Invited to take the stage at notable venues such as the Kennedy Center, Library of Congress, American Academy in Rome, and NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts, the quartet is also in demand for residencies at leading music schools around the country including Stanford University, New World Symphony, and Northwestern University. Named “Chicagoans of the Year 2017” by the Chicago Tribune, the quartet is proud to serve as Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Chicago’s Department of Music.

IVERSON

www.weareiverson.com

Iverson is a Synth Pop quintet from planet Earth surveying both the beauty and absurdity of the modern human condition via addictively catchy, synth-heavy pop songs and explosively dynamic, and often unpredictable, live performances. They are currently operating on OS v3.0

Established in 2013 by producer, songwriter, and frontperson Charles Iverson, IVERSON continues to evolve and shift, blurring the lines of the pop music canon, and bringing listeners through a staggering range of human emotion, genres and philosophical persuasions. Often as open-ended as human existence, itself, only one thing is certain: There will be synthesizers.
