Pulled Through Dimensions Feb 24, 2014

Having attended and performed in many OtB shows I can perhaps be forgiven for assuming that last week's Seattle Chamber Players concert, Icebreaker, would begin at the heretofore universal starting time, 8:00. Turns out it was 7:30, and consequently I can only comment on two-thirds of the program. You can take the girl out of the rock show but not the rock show out of the girl.

Nothing Like Your Average Chamber Concert Feb 19, 2014

For those who haven't had the chance to attend a Seattle Chamber Players concert, you don't know that the experience is nothing like your average chamber concert. In fact, it may feel more reminiscent of a rock & roll show, or even a 3D movie. It's very rare, in my experience as an audience member, to be completely captivated throughout an entire concert, but this event was a game changer. This ensemble truly succeeds in curating exceptionally innovative, daring and engaging programs that can challenge ones expectations.
