“In a special concert at Olin Park Pavilion, the Minneapolis-based Anonymous Choir will be joined by Madison’s most eclectic string ensemble, the Watercourse Quartet. Also performing will be singer/songwriter of cult status, Elephant Micah.
The Anonymous Choir is the project of Dark Dark Dark’s Nona Invie. Nona has established herself as a writer of songs of melancholic beauty for DDD, and has toured the world with that group. This choir of all women, a relatively new ensemble, has come together over the joy of singing together. Seeing them perform in the intimate and reverberant space of Gates of Heaven will be a rare pleasure.
The Watercourse Quartet, made up of two well-established string duos in Madison: the Weather Duo and the Brothers Grimm, specialize in improvisation and collaboration. Exploring concepts ranging from ancient Chinese music to contemporary texture-based sound art, their performances are experiential and engrossing. They will be joined in this performance by Madison-based singer/songwriter Page Foster, & Dancer Liz Sexe.
Elephant Micah has released many albums over the last decade, and has become a cult figure in the underground folk world.“
