This Mortal Frame: An Evening of Music by Steve Snowden

FREE ADMISSION - Suggested Donation $10

Enter the musical world of renowned composer Steven Snowden with works for string quartet and the world premiere of “This Mortal Frame,” for cello and electronics!

The music of Steven Snowden has been described as “Beguiling… combining force with clarity” (San Francisco Classical Voice), “Wonderfully dynamic” (Interlude Hong Kong), “Rustic, red-blooded” (New Music Box), “Marvelously evocative”, (Cleveland Plain Dealer), and “The most wildly intriguing sight and sound I have experienced at a concert” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer)

‘This Mortal Frame’ for cello and electronics, was composed for distinguished RVA cellist Schuyler Slack. The music chronicles the journey of Henry “Box” Brown, the Richmond-area slave who had himself mailed to Philadelphia in 1849 in a wooden box to escape the bonds of slavery. 

“This Mortal Frame” is a musical odyssey that surrounds the listener with the wonders and dangers of “Box” Brown’s unique path to freedom. It celebrates the courage of a man willing to risk his life for something better and transcend the circumstance into which he was born.

The adventure continues with an all-star line-up of musicians:

Ellen Cockerham Riccio, Matt Richardson, and Lauren Nelson join Schuyler for performances of three works for string quartet including ‘Appalachian Polaroids,’ inspired by the photographs of Shelby Lee Adams. Maestro Steve himself will make an appearance performing on a surprise instrument!

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.

Snacks will be served in a relaxed, come-as-you-are setting. The sound of this space will surprise you almost as much as the mature interpretations of these four young ladies.
