Town Music 2020/21 Marquee Events


Local Chamber Perspectives: An Evening of Music for the Moment

An Evening of Music for the Moment

10/28 at 7:30PM.

This season, Town Music explores how digital spaces can enhance our experience of art, rather than simply remind us of what we are missing. In this first event of the season, series Artistic Director Joshua Roman has curated a special evening of music featuring five deeply personal performances from local chamber musicians, including two world premieres!

Each musician will perform and then provide thoughts on the impact and importance of their pieces as the night progresses. Join us for an exciting evening of local chamber excellence with local musicians playing music for the current moment!

The Impermanence of Time (Local Chamber Showcase)

Fri, 12/11 at 7:30PM | $25 GA, $20 TH Members

From “Quartet for the End of Time” to pieces written this year in response to the pandemic, and stops in between, four local chamber musicians and Joshua himself consider the feeling of time being stretched or displaced, an occurrence that is all too familiar these days. Join us for an affecting evening of chamber music from phenomenal local musicians that will leave a lasting impact.

yMusic Event

Spring 2021 (Date TBA)

Founded in New York City in 2008, yMusic believes in presenting excellent, emotionally communicative music, regardless of style or idiom. This uniquely configured group (string trio, flute, clarinet, and trumpet) is guaranteed to expand your assumptions about what chamber music can be.

Spektral Quartet

Spring 2021 (Date TBA)

Since its inception in 2010, Spektral is known for creating seamless connections across centuries, drawing in the listener with charismatic deliveries, interactive concert formats, an up-close atmosphere, and bold, inquisitive programming. Spektral Quartet actively pursues a vivid conversation between exhilarating works of the traditional repertoire and those written this decade, this year, or this week.

Joshua Roman, Series Artistic Director

Joshua Roman has earned an international reputation for his wide-ranging repertoire and his commitment to communicating the essence of music in visionary ways. As well as being a celebrated performer, he is recognized as an accomplished composer and curator. Before embarking on a solo career, Roman spent two seasons as principal cellist of the Seattle Symphony, a position he won in 2006 at the age of 22. Since that time he has appeared as a soloist with symphony orchestras in San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Scotland, Moscow, and many others.

While Roman leapt in short order from undergraduate at the Cleveland Institute of Music to principal cello of the Seattle Symphony to soloist with major orchestras around the globe, his childhood ambition to compose his own music lay dormant. A series of multimedia collaborations starting in 2013 nudged Roman to go beyond improvising on the cello and to start committing music to paper, and since then he has embraced composing as a key facet of his musical expression. His major works to date include a cello concerto, Awakening, and a large song cycle, we do it to one another.
