SOLI Chamber Ensemble is joined by Grammy-winning electric guitarist D.J. Sparr for a virtual performance in which “phasing, loops and funk meet rock, flavors of jazz and contemporary classical harmonies to bring electrifying energy to the ear.”

The concert, titled Electrified Air, will be free to view on SOLI’s YouTube channel.



Following the group’s usual modus operandi, SOLI will perform three world premieres on the program: Anthony Joseph Lanman’s Hammer and Nail, Olivia Kieffer’s A Singing Planet and a piece the ensemble commissioned from Sparr, A Bell Outside a Bell Inside a Bell.

SOLI’s Ertan Torgul will get particularly into the rock ’n’ roll spirit for Sparr’s Vim-Hocket, Calm, eschewing his usual violin for an electric version of the instrument.

Free, 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 17, YouTube, solichamberensemble.com.
