Now in its sixth season, Schubert Club Mix is an innovative series that takes the formality out of classical music. Audiences are treated to remarkable and intimate performances with relevant artists who are influencing the musical landscape of today.
Based out of New York (but originally from Seattle), the self-described “accidental brass quartet” featuring two trumpets and two trombones takes its name from the prevailing winds that travel from the West to the East. “Skilled interpreters who are also adept improvisers” (NPR’s Fresh Air), this Mix performance in our newest venue, Minneapolis’s Machine Shop, will explore jazz, roots, and chamber music influences to create the rarest of hybrids: music that is both “folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous” (NPR Music). Expect the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band, and the charm of a family sing-along.

About Machine Shop
The Pillsbury A-Mill was once the largest working mill in the world, and this building was an integral part of its success. State of the art, modern equipment was produced and repaired there. Reopened in 2016, this historic machinery shop has been carefully restored, keeping the original 1916 architectural details intact, while introducing modern luxury in this industrial space. Just as the Pillsbury machine shop was an important player in establishing Minneapolis, Machine Shop Historic Venue is cornerstone for the city of Minneapolis, as a host of extraordinary and glamorous events.
