The music group eighth blackbird will perform works by professional composer Jennifer Higdon and Princeton graduate students Randy Bauer, Judd Greenstein, David Little, Gregory Spears and John Supko.
Eighth blackbird's accolades include the Naumburg Chamber Music Award, the top prize in the Concert Artists Guild International Competition and the CMA/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, which the group won three times. Eighth blackbird also has appeared on CBS' "Sunday Morning." The group's name alludes to the eighth stanza of the Wallace Stevens poem "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird."
