OpenICE is a free monthly series exploring the work of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), named “one of the most accomplished and adventurous groups in new music,” (New York Times), in unpretentious and intimate environments.
Two of ICE’s most dynamic soloists, harpist Nuiko Wadden and hornist David Byrd-Marrow, present this free concert of new works at the Hideout in Chicago.
After the concert, Nuiko and David will be in conversation with Heidi Coleman, Director of Chicago Performance Lab, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Theater and Performance Studies (TAPS) at University of Chicago, and her daughter Daisy Coleman, third grader at the Lab School.
Please note that all attendees must be 21+ or accompanied by a legal guardian.
The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) is dedicated to reshaping the way music is created and experienced. With a modular makeup of 33 leading instrumentalists performing in forces ranging from solos to large ensembles, ICE functions as performer, presenter, and educator, advancing the music of our time by developing innovative new works and new strategies for audience engagement. ICE redefines concert music as it brings together new work and new listeners in the 21st century.
