About This Program

Visionary maximalist composer Anna Meredith makes her Twin Cities debut with an evening of her “striking and smart” (The Guardian) electro-acoustic music performed by her band featuring clarinet, cello, electric guitar, tuba, drums and electronics, a live show NPR called “incredible.” Meredith’s debut album Varmints (2016) mixes contemporary classical, art pop, electronica and experimental rock into compositional experiments like few before her.

Please note: only standing room tickets remain for this concert

“One of the most innovative minds in modern British music: she wears her obvious theoretical grounding lightly and never lets it obstruct her ecstatic quest for new ideas and deranged stimuli. And Varmints is a knockout, the kind that makes you see cartoon stars.” —Pitchfork
