The “8” in the name represents a re-imagining of the string octet: 5 violins, viola, cello and double bass. This instrumentation drives a rich and powerful sound delivered in the Barrage 8 compositions and arrangements. Barrage 8 presents what the Barrage name has come to represent worldwide: “a memorable presentation of music, from many genres and cascading generations, delivered in a way not seen or heard before.” This show is part of the 2016-2017 Season Lineup, which gives you discounted tickets and great seats!
