“Extraordinary, presenting a sort of ambient gospel-folk music that’s immersed in secular desires and experiences.” —National Public Radio

“Quietly transfixing” violinist, singer, producer and composer Emily Wells is known for her varied use of classical and modern instrumentation, deft approach to live sampling, and “dramatic, meticulous and gothic songs” (New York Times) that blend “traditionalism with electronic ambiance” (NPR). Speaking to our cultural moment, The World Is Too ____ For You includes new work inspired by hymns, imagined eulogies for loved ones and arrangements of Wells’ music by Michi Wiancko. The performance also reveals new video work designed by Wells, drawing heavily from contemporary dance.

Tickets: $20 ($16 for SPCO/Liquid Music subscribers)
