Eighth Blackbird 

When: Sat., Nov. 23, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-32
The nebulous term "indie classical" loosely refers to ensemble- or orchestra-based music played largely by often young, seemingly cool groups of musicians/composers/advocates somewhat uninterested in distinctions that divide art and entertainment. It's a phrase and a caste that tends to produce discomfort among its constituents, but the field itself renders interesting programming choices. For instance, the rightfully lauded Chicago sextet eighth blackbird offers pieces here from The Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry and The National's Bryce Dessner, alongside work by the late György Ligeti and multidisciplinary Australian composer Brett Dean. That's an intriguing mixed lot. —Grayson Haver Currin
