Southampton - The Southampton Cultural Center announces a concert performance by the Yarn/Wire on Thursday, October 6 at 7 p.m. as part of the Southampton Cultural Center Chamber Music Series.

Yarn/Wire includes Ian Antonio - Percussion, Russell Greenberg - Percussion, Laura Barger - Piano, and Ning Yu - Piano.

Using an enormous selection of instruments, Yarn/Wire, a leading and innovative chamber quartet, will present a collection of quirky, lyrical, and colorful new pieces by leading American composers of our time. The program will include "Zum Tanzen" by Edwin Dugger, "Quiet Music" by Fred Lerdhal and "If Where Is of To Why" by Aaron Helgeson.

Yarn/Wire is a quartet of two percussionists and two pianists. This instrumental combination allows the ensemble flexibility to slip effortlessly between classics of the repertoire and more modern works that continue to forge new boundaries. Founded in 2005, Yarn/Wire is admired for the energy and precision they bring to vital performances of today's most adventurous music. The results of Yarn/Wire's collaborative initiatives are pointing towards the emergence of a new and lasting repertoire, and partnerships with genre-bending artists such as Theatre of a Two-Headed Calf and David Bithell have led to the creation of work that is "spare and strange and very, very new."
