CLASSICAL | Deviant Septet


The cleverly named New York City-based ensemble Deviant Septet will play Kilbourn Hall this Saturday with an exceptional contemporary classical setlist — including "L.E.O." by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, a world premiere by Eastman's own Brad Lubman, and "Catch and Release" by composer-conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen. The eclectic Deviant musicians have also ventured into the worlds of indie music and the avant-garde, performing with the likes of David Byrne, St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, and John Zorn. Deviant Septet will appear at the Eastman School of Music as artists-in-residence of the Warren and Patricia Benson Forum on Creativity (Thursday, April 28, through Saturday, April 30), which includes workshops, panel discussions, and open rehearsals.

Deviant Septet will perform Saturday, April 30, in Kilbourn Hall at Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 8 pm. $10; free with UR ID. 454-2100;;
