    Move presents The Westerlies' vision for the future of chamber music: a musical world that celebrates spontaneity, improvisation, and timbral exploration, built around rich harmonies and timeless melodies that linger in one's ear. At the center of the program is Caroline Shaw's monumental string quartet, Entr'acte, reimagined by The Westerlies in a way that stretches traditional notions of the expressive potential of brass instruments. The program also includes original compositions by members of the ensemble, showcasing their personal voices as composers next to some of their greatest musical inspirations. With Move, The Westerlies tear down the walls of genre to construct a bold and inclusive musical universe. 

    The Community Concert is performed at the Edwards Interfaith Chapel. This free concert requires a reservation.
