Third Angle

BRETT CAMPBELL
7:30 pm Thursday, March 21., Thursday March 21 | $5-$35.
 
In some musically progressive cities, too many narrow-minded major classical institutions seem to wrongly define classical music as musty museum music written by long-dead Europeans. It’s refreshing—and essential—to have groups like Third Angle who properly treat it is a living tradition, and actually invest in keeping it flourishing. Last year’s first installment of New Ideas in Music proved contemporary classical music written by 20- and 30-somethings can be at least as vibrant as modern pop and rock. This year’s finalists, chosen from dozens of submitted string quartets by a distinguished panel of composers, include new works by 21st-century composers from Portland, Forest Grove, Kansas City, Australia, the Netherlands and Wisconsin. The winner, chosen at the concert, will receive a $2,500 prize. It’s a chance to hear the classical music of tomorrow.
