Hailed by NPR’s Fred Child as “one of the groups that has really helped to shape the future of classical music,” yMusic is a group of six New York City instrumentalists flourishing in the overlap between the pop and classical worlds. Their virtuosic execution and unique configuration (string trio, flute, clarinet and trumpet) has attracted the attention of high-profile collaborators and more recently inspired an expanding repertoire of original works by some of today’s foremost composers.
February 3, 2017 yMusic will perform at the Scottsdale center for the performing arts. Starts at 8PM. Scottsdale Center For The Performing Arts is located at 7380 East Second Street Scottsdale, AZ 85251. Admission ranges between $29 – $49.
In addition to performing its own repertoire, yMusic serves as a ready-made collaborative unit for bands and songwriters, and has striven to bring a classical chamber music aesthetic to venues outside the traditional concert hall. Its members have individually toured and recorded with artists such as Bon Iver, Paul Simon, Bjork, The National, Meredith Monk, Antony & The Johnsons, David Byrne, The New York Philharmonic and Sufjan Stevens.
