Ecstatic Music Fest:
Dan Deacon with NOW Ensemble & the Calder Quartet

Tuesday, March 20, 2012  |  7:30pm


A New Sounds® Live Presentation Hosted by WNYC's John Schaefer

Dan Deacon (pictured) returns to the Ecstatic Music Festival after last year’s sold-out show, this time writing a series of new works for acclaimed chamber groups NOW Ensemble (“a deft young group gaining attention,” New Yorker) and the Calder Quartet (“outstanding,” New York Times), both for the individual ensembles and for the two together in a mini-chamber orchestra.
