The Society for Disobedient Listeners
Judging by streaming service playlists, Western classical music’s primary function is one of either relaxation, sophistication, or prematurely inflating infant IQs.
Hosted by the “arrestingly unconventional” (The New Yorker) music writer and former Spektral Quartet violist Doyle Armbrust, The Society for Disobedient Listeners is an interactive pre-concert experience reconnecting listeners to the subversive, visceral, and even revolutionary elements of the evening’s program. Conceived as an anti-lecture, The Society for Disobedient Listeners draws the great music of the past into proximity with the felicities and calamities of modern life.
