Wayne Horvitz

Wayne Horvitz returns to The Shedd with the combined forces of his working ensembles The Gravitas Quartet and Sweeter Than The Day on the world premier tour of "Some Places Sre Forever Afternoon", his extraordinary new suite of 11 pieces based on the poems of Northwest poet Richard Hugo (1923-82). Each composition is inspired by a different Hugo poem. The pieces include composed and improvisational elements and the performance of each will be followed by a reading of its corresponding poem. "Some Places Are Forever Afternoon" was created with funding from the Shifting Foundation. Its 2015 tour and presentation at The Shedd is funded in part by Chamber Music America. The members of the ensemble are: Wayne Horvitz-piano, Ron Miles-trumpet, Peggy Lee-cello, Sara Schoenbeck-bassoon, Timothy Young-guitar, Keith Lowe-bass and Eric Eagle-drums.
