PLG Arts Chamber Music Series Presents Osso at The Owl, 497 Rogers Ave, (Rogers and Midwood), Sunday, April 17th at 2pm.
Admission: $5 suggested donation
PLG Arts Chamber Music will present an afternoon of music performed by Osso on Sunday, April 17th. They’ll be performing music by Mozart, John Adams and more, joined by Katie Scheele on oboe. This is the fifth concert in the PLG Arts Chamber Music series in Prospect Lefferts Gardens.
Osso fuses the classical sensibilities of a string quartet with the pulse of pop culture. Their rhythmically driven rep and ambitious commissioning forge new territory within the classical tradition. With an exuberant commitment to collaboration, Osso has spent the past twelve years touring, performing, and recording with artists such as Jay-Z, Kanye West, John Legend, The National, My Brightest Diamond, and Sufjan Stevens. Their interpretation of Stevens’ electronica album Enjoy Your Rabbit recomposes computer keystrokes into vibrant acoustic arrangements, welding the energy of indie rock and the nuance of chamber music to create explosive and enchanting new sounds.
Osso is Monica Davis, Brooke Quiggins, Kallie Ciechomski, and Maria Jeffers. http://asthmatickitty.com/artists/osso/
