IonSounds of Christmas

Written by Andrew Druckenbrod on .

IonSoundIMO, there should be a law against ads using the "Carol of the Bells" with different lyrics. But if you really need a break from all the Christmas music out there check out IonSound Project's concert at 7 p.m. this Monday (Dec. 15) @ Chatham University's Laughlin Music Center. The group, recently named ensemble-in-residence at Pitt, is calling it an evening of "spiritually inspired chamber music," and it will be joined by local favorite contralto Daphne Alderson.

The program:

  • John Adams' Christian Zeal and Activity
  • Zhou Long's Secluded Orchid
  • Katherine Hoover's Winter Spirits
  • Daniel Perttu's Elusive Unity
  • Nizan Leibovich's Avaksha (premiere).

Tickets are $5-$10. or
