IN THE DARK… BY EMERALD CITY MUSIC

Ever hear a concert in complete pitch-black darkness?

Hey Seattle, we’re Emerald City Music, the “beacon for the casual-classical movement presenting high-level musicians in a totally unstuffy environment” (CityArts Magazine). We’re the eclectic, open-bar destination for Seattle’s music lovers to dive deep into the world’s biggest genre of music alongside an unbelievable cast of top-tier musicians.

On the heels of Halloween weekend, immerse yourself in a terrifying musical experience: Georg Friedrich Haas’s “In iij. Noct” for string quartet. With the absence of light as the focus, this hour long string quartet is performed completely in the dark as four musicians surround the audience from the corners of the venue. This, Haas’s third quartet of such nature, is composed as a verbal score, with many details and decisions left to the performers. No single performance of this work is the same; the musicians throughout the piece will decide (by communicating in complete pitch-black darkness) how far they wish to go down each musical path together before turning back.

Haas “In iij Noct.” (In the Dark)

Musicians: Siwoo Kim, violin • Kristin Lee, violin • Jack Stulz, viola • Mihai Marica, cello “Single-handedly raising Seattle’s profile in the classical music world, this series has major performers and composers in a chamber music setting. The venue, the back of a coffee and chocolate shop, increases the salon sensibility.” – ECM Audience member

Tickets: $45, includes open bar.

An individual facing an impending 35th birthday struggles to come up with a wish to make as they blow out the birthday candles surrounded by a group of married friends. At a turning point in life this person who has thus far walked a solitary path faces the imperative to come to terms with either being happy as they are, or seeking a romantic partner. Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, and thoughtful conversations, our central character attempts to understand what marriage and commitment mean in their own life. When it premiered in 1971, Company received both the Drama Desk and Tony Awards for Best Musical, Book, Score and Lyrics.

Rehearsals are currently scheduled to begin Monday, September 23. 

Composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and librettist George Furth also collaborated on the musical Merrily We Go Along and the drama Getting Away with Murder. Sondheim has also written music and/or lyrics for other great musicals, including West Side Story, Gypsy, Into the Woods, Follies, A Little Night Music, Assassins, Sweeney Todd and Sunday in the Park with George. 

Richard Gray has directed Lift, Grand Hotel, Drood and Quilters at Cornish. Rich recently appeared as Officer Krupke in the 5th Avenue Theatre’s West Side Story,  and his musical Cold Turkey will be workshopped in August as part of Village Theatre’s 19th Annual Festival of New Musicals. Rich is  currently taking on the role of King Neptune in various Seafair activities around the region. He will be teaching several musical theater classes this fall at Cornish.
