The Box Is Empty is pleased to bring you a third concert of premiers and new works. “Live at the Century Ballroom” will include works by Bang on a Can founder Michael Gordon, the Dutch multi-media composer-director Michel Van Der Aa, and American up-and-comers Scott Gendel, Amy Beth Kirsten, and Seattle’s own Nat Evans.
This concert experience will be a different one. Century Ballroom will be serving drinks (so don’t forget your ID!), and we are going to give the music a little bit of breathing room. There will be time between works to chat, meet the musicians, grab a drink, and relax. So, come for a night with friends, and come to hear a night of wonderful new music!

Evans – Hear No Noise *World Premier*
