Eighth Blackbird, hailed as “one of the smartest, most dynamic contemporary classical ensembles on the planet” by the Chicago Tribune, performs on the Watson Hall stage. Over the course of more than two decades, Eighth Blackbird has continually pushed at the edges of what it means to be a contemporary chamber ensemble, presenting distinct programs nationally and internationally, reaching audiences totaling tens of thousands.
The sextet has commissioned and premiered hundreds of works by composers both established and emerging, and have perpetuated the creation of music with profound impact, such as Steve Reich’s Double Sextet, which went on to win the 2009 Pulitzer Prize.
