No Exit's, Seventh Season of Music   10.30.15

No Exit will be at SPACES on Saturday, November 21, 8:00pm (free)

With Erik Satie's 150 birthday on the horizon, we thought it a keen idea to pay tribute to the original musical dadaist. We will be celebrating the legacy of Satie, throughout our 2015-2016 concert season. An extraordinary season of performances it will be!
For this series of concerts, in addition to Satie, No Exit will be giving voice to music by Krzysztof Penderecki and Kaija Saariaho as well as works from Cleveland area composers Ryan Gallagher and Nicholas Underhill (a world premiere) and, last but not least, a world premiere by Minnesotan composer Justin Henry Rubin. Quite the show folks!
