PARTCH Ensemble—the Grammy Award-winning  ensemble specializing in the music and instruments of the iconoclastic American Maverick composer Harry Partch—returns to REDCAT with an evening of alluring and powerful music performed on the extraordinary orchestra of instruments Partch designed and built himself. This year’s program includes Partch’s Three DancesProgressions/Abstractions & Delusions, and Five Intrusions, as well as the world premiere of Jeffrey Holmes’ Reið (Raidō) [Ride, Journey] and a staged concert version of new scenes from Anne LeBaron’s latest opera, LSD - Huxley’s Last Trip.

The program includes an instrument “petting zoo”: audiences are encouraged to touch the instruments on stage after the show.
