Vail, CO (June 24, 2014): Blending the new and traditional, Bravo! Vail today announced the details of Bravo! Vail After Dark, a concert series that emphasizes experiencing classical music in a whole new way. In its first season, the After Dark series features two free events: Third Coast Percussion at the Vail Ale House on July 19 and the Calder Quartet at the Crazy Mountain Brewing Company on July 26. The series, which removes the traditional barriers between artists and audiences, showcases high-caliber performances by cutting-edge artists that fuse the energy of modern sounds with classical music – together with the perfect accompaniment: local handcrafted beers.

The objective of the After Dark series is to foster a spirit of collaboration and experimentation, bringing classical music to local settings that offer a comfortable ambiance. In essence, After Dark concerts feature classically-based music that is curated to match both the space and audience.

If You Go: Third Coast Percussion at the Vail Ale House
Hailed by The New Yorker as “vibrant” and “superb,” Chicago-based Third Coast Percussion explores and expands the extraordinary sonic possibilities of the percussion repertoire. Since its formation in 2005, Third Coast Percussion has gained national attention with concerts that meld the energy of rock music with the precision and nuance of classical chamber works. These “hard-grooving” musicians (New York Times) have become known for collaborations across a wide range of disciplines, including concerts and residency projects with engineers at the University of Notre Dame, architects at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, astronomers at the Adler Planetarium, and more.

Third Coast Percussion enhances the performances it offers with new media, including free iPhone and iPad apps that allow audience members to create their own musical performances and take a deeper look at the music performed by Third Coast Percussion.

If You Go: Calder Quartet at the Crazy Mountain Brewing Company
The Calder Quartet, called “outstanding” and “superb” by the New York Times, performs a broad range of repertoire at an exceptional level, always striving to channel and fulfill the composer’s vision. The group’s distinctive approach is exemplified by a musical curiosity brought to everything they perform, whether it’s Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, or sold-out rock shows with bands like The National or The Airborne Toxic Event.

Winners of the 2014 Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Calder Quartet is known for the discovery, commissioning, recording and mentoring of some of today’s best emerging composers (over 25 commissioned works to date). The group continues to work and collaborate with artists across musical genres, spanning the ranges of the classical and contemporary music world, as well as rock, and visual arts; and in venues ranging from art galleries and rock clubs to Carnegie and Walt Disney concert halls. Inspired by innovative American artist Alexander Calder, the Calder Quartet’s desire to bring immediacy and context to the works they perform creates an artfully crafted musical experience.
