From Coachella to the opera house, Eighth Blackbird is one of the most adventurous instrumental ensembles in chamber music today, combining the finesse of a string quartet, the energy of a rock band and the audacity of a storefront theater company. The Chicago-based Grammy-winning sextet are known for collaborating with musicians who straddle the rock and classical worlds. At the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland, they'll perform "Murder Ballades", an all-new work by composer and The National guitarist Bryce Dessner. The concert also includes singer-songwriter Bonnie "Prince" Billy, who will perform a set of original songs, along with Frederic Rzewski's iconic "Coming Together".
