This bonus episode of In The Moment offers an insider's look at our Town Music series! Host Jini Palmer talks with Town Music curator Joshua Roman about chamber music, the theatrical aspects of a live performance, and his selection process for each season's lineup. They dive into this season of Town Music, taking a look at our upcoming concerts. For the first performance, Sideshow by Talea Ensemble (15:50), Roman highlights the theatrical spin that the piece brings to chamber music. Then he takes a look at Third Coast Percussion (18:20), the Grammy-winning Chicago quartet presenting an avant-garde percussion quartet commissioned by Philip Glass. Jini and Joshua also touch on Piano Ki Avaaz (22:00), the piano trio commissioned by rising star composer Reena Esmail utilizing techniques that blend Indian and Western classical traditions. And finally, Jini and Joshua explore Bach to Bates (25:12)—a concert juxtaposing classical works by Bach alongside cutting-edge commissions from Grammy-nominated composer Mason Bates. Get an insider's look and stay in the know about what's going on in this moment at Town Hall.
