Common Tone: invoke live Invoke

March 9, 2014
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

For one night only, invoke joins forces with the expert mixologists at Busboys and Poets to elevate two common sensory experiences into one uniquely fused event, one quite familiar to the members of invoke: American music alongside American beverages.

Featuring music by real live composers, the program includes Danny Clay’s Toy Piano Music, Dan Visconti's Ramshackle Songs, Philip Glass' mesmerizing String Quartet No. 5 and a wild world premiere from local composer Geoff Sheil.

invoke is an ensemble that looks to the present, not the past, for inspiration. Believing that the string quartet remains one of the most maneuverable ensembles, invoke aims to direct the efforts of artists across disciplines to reinvent the string quartet as a relevant 21st century medium.
