3 Exciting Upcoming Mass MoCA Events
Polica/Stargaze (February 15th, 2018)
One of Europe’s hottest ensembles is joining forces with the brooding pop of Polica. This boundary-breaking performance was created for a new evening-length work known as Music for the Long Emergency, commissioned by and premiered with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music Series.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor (March 10th, 2018)
Godspeed You! Black Emperor began in Montreal in the early 1900’s with just 3 members. Since then, they’ve grown into an earth-rattling sound experience with 14 live musicians. Their unique use of melody offers a translucent sound that you won’t be able to get enough of.
