We like to close our Chicago concert seasons with a bang: hiring a dance instructor to teach everyone The Hustle at the end of a movement-based show, for example, or filling the hall with Spektral Quartet-branded beach balls at the conclusion of a yacht-rock themed evening…you get the idea.
We talk a lot about the wide variety of skills and sheer talents amongst you in our audience, and this year we’d like to showcase YOU! It’s our first-ever talent show. Come to think of it, this has to be the first talent show thrown by a string quartet, EVER. It does not need to be music. Magic? Sure. Drag? Of course. Spoken word? Def. Gator wrestling? If you say so. Amateur meteorology? Um…
What about us, you ask? Well, we’ve got a world premiere for you from LJ White (which we’ll keep a secret for a little while longer).
And wait until you get a load of our special guests: Iverson! They close out the night with some of the tastiest/synthy-est/juiciest you will ever see on stage. It’s basically impossible not to dance when they start ripping solos.
This is going to be bananas.
