Trey Pollard's "Antiphone" Release with Matthew E. White

Tickets Available Here

Worlds Collide as two beloved Spacebomb artists present the music of their inner selves.

Both Trey Pollard and Matthew E. White possess a sensitive and carefully developed musical voice, though they have chosen to express it through different genres.

Presented as part of Classical Revolution RVA's "Birthday Week:" Help us celebrate six years of innovative music making and keep the revolution going strong! 

Tickets $7 in advance/ $10 at the door

Indie songsmith Matthew E. White will perform an intimate solo set with vocals and piano, later joined by a string quintet comprised of the musicians of Classical Revolution RVA.

The evening will continue with compositions from Pollard's new album "Antiphone," performed live for the very first time by string quintet!

Pollard's Preludes and Fugues for string quintet create musical dreamscapes both comforting and challenging - a series of parallel harmonic planes, constellations of notes unburdened by the tension of standard chordal and melodic structures.

Never straying into the brashness of avant-garde, this is music for listening - made right here in RVA.

Django Tango is directly inspired by the jazz manouche made famous in France by Romani guitar legend Django Reinhardt.

Bedlam at Blue Bee

Bedlam at Blue Bee

Join us in welcoming early music ensemble Bedlam at Blue Bee Cider in Scott's Edition. The performance is free and open to all ages.

BEDLAM was formed by Kayleen Sánchez, soprano, and Laudon Schuett, lutenist, and is dedicated to exploring the rich repertoire of music for voice and lute in the 16th and 17th centuries. Bedlam is a colloquial term for the Bethlem Royal Hospital in London, England. At the time, it was an infamous psychiatric facility and an inspiration for artists and writers living around it. Perhaps the most famous musical reference to Bedlam is Henry Purcell’s “From Silent Shades and the Elysian Groves,” also known as “Mad Bess of Bedlam.” Both Kayleen (BM, MM in Voice) and Laudon (MM, DMA in Early Music) studied at the Eastman School of Music. Since forming in 2013, Bedlam has performed and lectured around the country. Bedlam’s first album is available on Soundset Recordings and Athyr Records. BEDLAM was the first Pegasus Rising ensemble, an award and title given by Pegasus Early Music to young professional musicians beginning their performing careers. It is not their goal to simply recreate performance practices of early music for educational purposes but to use the knowledge of such practices to produce vivid, visceral, and above-all, entertaining music. We hope you enjoy!

Seacrest Quartet at Blue Bee Cider

Classical Revolution RVA is proud to present the Seacrest Quartet, an exciting young ensemble out of South Florida performing works by Schubert, Ginastera, and Smetana. 

About Seacrest Quartet:

The Seacrest Quartet was founded on the idea that great music should be played with great friends. Members (Kevin Seto & Tinca Belinski, violins; Kaitlin Springer, viola; Axel Rojas, cello) hail from three continents, but have converged in the South Florida area where they actively perform for the community. Described as being “well balanced with passionate energy”, this group brings great vitality to the concert hall. Members have performed across the globe in festivals including Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival in Germany, Aspen Music Festival, Zeist Music Days Chamber Music Festival in the Netherlands, and the Garth Newel Emerging Artist Fellowship Program. They have performed in masterclasses for the Emerson Quartet, Pacifica Quartet, Jupiter Quartet, and the Muir Quartet, as well as for acclaimed artists such as Charles Castleman, Gilad Karni, and Elmar Oliveira.

The Seacrest Quartet is passionate about sharing music through education. They are currently Artists-in-Residence at the Conservatory School @ North Palm Beach and have a connection with the Florida Youth Orchestra that allows them to share the joy of music through outreach concerts on a broad level.

They are thrilled to have been awarded the Quartet Fellowship at Wintergreen Summer Music Festival, where they plan to continue their musical growth and achieve new heights!
