Concert I:  Featuring guest soprano, Agata Zubel
Sunday, February 16, 2014
Italian composer Fausto Romitelli's video opera An Index of Metals (2003) is a hypnotic path towards perceptive saturation. The program opens with Portuguese composer Luis Tinoco's Spam! (2009), sourcing the detritus-rich Internet

Concert II: Featuring guest cellist, Julie Albers
Monday, February 17, 2014
Dutch composer and filmmaker Michel van der Aa's Up-Close (2010) is a hair-raising interaction in which a mysterious film mirrors a dramatic live performance. Other works include German composer Michael Beil's open source (2008), utilizing a Wiki-type editing approach to a classical aria, and Greek composer Yannis Kyriakides' Karaoke Etudes (2010), sampling iconic pop classics with video-driven live interactions.

Hailed for daring and intelligent programming, uncompromising artistry and spirited performances, the Seattle Chamber Players (SCP) enjoys a growing international reputation. For over twenty years, SCP's four core members-Laura DeLuca, clarinet, David Sabee (cello), Mikhail Shmidt (violin), and Paul Taub (flute) have been passionately dedicated to introducing rarely performed and previously unheard contemporary chamber music of the highest quality to the Pacific Northwest and audiences worldwide. This is will be their fourth performance at On the Boards. Executive producer of Icebreaker VII is Grammy-winner David Sabee.
