Summit Beer Hall (map)

Join us for this final concert of the Mix season in a brand new venue for this series, Summit Brewery, for a lively evening with New York ensemble Third Sound in their Twin Cities debut performance. Formed in 2015 by composer Patrick Castillo, the ensemble is comprised of Sooyun Kim, flute; Romie de Guise-Langlois, clarinet; Karen Kim, violin; Michael Nicolas, cello; Orion Weiss, piano; and Patrick Castillo, composer. They will bring a mixed program of music including works by Brahms, Schoenberg and a world premiere by Patrick Castillo. In forming the ensemble with his wife Karen Kim, Patrick remarks, “We wanted to assemble a group of musicians whom we could trust with the broad sweep of chamber repertoire, to take everything from Mozart to Schoenberg, to stuff with the ink still wet equally seriously, with total curiosity, and absolutely kill it, no matter what the program.”
