The Ear – A Composer Duel

September 20, 2018 @ 7:30 PM

Ten composers vie for your affection in this highbrow, irreverent classical reboot. Dress up with style and attitude and get ready to yell “Again!” if something gets your blood going. Think ‘The Voice’ for composers, but way rowdier. Nuttier. Cheering in the middle of the music. Heckling the emcee. Drinking. Voting for the pieces you want to hear again.

Hosted by Alf Bishai with lots of comedy, audience interaction, nerdy shenanigans, and – most important – gorgeous music you’ve never heard before and will want to hear again. If you’ve ever thought, “I’d like to get into classical more”, but don’t know how…this is how.
