The Shedd welcomes back two old friends, Wayne Horvitz and Sara Schoenbeck back to Eugene with their new duo project. Horvitz first appeared here in 2006 with his ensemble "Sweeter Than The Day", Schoenbeck in 2008 with their ensemble "Gravitas Quartet", and in 2015 both groups returned as a septet to present the stunning consortium premier of "Some Places Are Forever Afternoon", a suite of settings by Horvitz of poems by Northwest poet Richard Hugo, a Chamber Music America commission of which The Shedd was a part.
Dinner is offered before the evening show.
