About This Show:
Announcing a landmark evening of extraordinary chamber music with EX WHY and ARX DUO. Presented by the newly-minted production house Unexpected Outcomes, this evening of creative virtuosity features two project-driven pairs of players, Chicago-based piano/percussion duo Ex Why, and the Seattle-based percussion-focused arx duo.
This is the night when two 4-time GRAMMY Award winners step out and appear for the first time as Ex Why. Matthew Duvall and Lisa Kaplan, founding members and co-Artistic Directors of Eighth Blackbird, have developed the kind of telepathy that only comes over 23 years of ensemble performance.
Also featured are the extraordinary Seattle-based world traveling project omnivores arx duo, featuring Mari Yoshinaga and Garrett Arney. Master musicians and committed collaborators with a performance aesthetic as elegant as it is relentless.
