Noted Endeavors with eighth blackbird: What Makes You Stand Out – Identify Then Brand It

Eugenia Zukerman and Emily Ondracek-Peterson of Noted Endeavors interview Matthew Duvall and Lisa Kaplan of the acclaimed new music ensemble, eighth blackbird.

Noted EndeavorsCombining “the finesse of a string quartet and the energy of a rock band,” this ensemble will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2015. The three-time Grammy Award-winning group commissions new works from composers and choreographers, enjoys residencies at such prestigious schools as the University of Chicago, Curtis Institute and others, and performs worldwide with great acclaim. The name “eighth blackbird” derives from the eighth stanza of Wallace Stevens’s evocative, aphoristic poem of 1917: Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.
