EAR Unit: A Valentine Out of Season

Today on Giving Tuesday, we need you.
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all today on Giving Tuesday. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls AND will be matched dollar-for-dollar! Let your support for reliable local reporting be amplified by this special matching opportunity. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Taking a stance against Valentine's Day can only be best suited by seeing the EAR Unit tonight at REDCAT. The L.A. based new music group will perform tonight with some holiday treats and surprises by the artist collective - Empire of Teeth. Tonight's feature is the world premiere of Ellen Taaffe Zwilich's LUVN BLM. Zwilich was the first woman composer to win the Pulitzer Prize.

The EAR Unit has always been at the top of their game. When it comes to their performance skills, they are solid, accurate, meaningful, dynamic, and beautiful. Composed music should be played as if one is improvising, not reading it off a piece of paper. EAR Unit exemplifies that.

Also on tonight's program will be: Eric Chasalow’s Flute Concerto (Three Love Poems), for Morton Feldman by Stephen "Lucky" Mosko (who recently passed away in his Green Valley home north of L.A. and is survived by his wife and EAR Unit flutist, Dorothy Stone), A Rose Is A Rose Is A Round by James Tenney, and John Cage's A Valentine Out of Season.
