Empire Wild to perform in Hart Oct. 27

HART — The Hart Community Performing Arts Series continues the 2023-2024 season Friday, Oct. 27, with a concert by Empire Wild in the Hart Public Schools Auditorium. 

Empire Wild is a genre-bending, crossover trio featuring classically-trained musicians as a vehicle for their shared love of musical exploration — fusing the sounds of pop, folk, Broadway and more into their songwriting and composition. 

The group was selected as an Ambassador Prize winner in the 2020 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition. Their debut EP Paper Seasons features all original songs, highlighting the trio’s unique sound and instrumentation. Based in NYC, Empire Wild has brought its signature mix of original music, inventive covers, and twists on the classical canon to audiences across the country.

Last season, the trio delighted audiences with its signature mix of original songwriting and unique arrangements at venues across the country including a stop at South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center, a concert on the Harriman-Jewell concert series in Kansas City, and a day at the Kaufman Music Center’s musical storefronts in Lincoln Center. This fall will feature a Midwest tour through 10 states, along with educational workshops in Iowa and Ohio. 

Individually, all three musicians are committed to community engagement and teaching. Together as an ensemble, Empire Wild feels that it is important to prioritize community-oriented work and bring creative musical outlets and opportunities to students of all backgrounds and skill levels. They have shared their unusual versatility with students through workshops at University of Iowa, the Peabody Institute, and the Preucil School, among others. Equally at home in classrooms, intimate salons and large concert halls, Empire Wild brings a sense of community to every performance. 

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Hart Public Schools Auditorium, located in the Hart Middle School at 308 W. Johnson St. Tickets for the concert are available at the door or online at hartseries.org for $15 each. For further information about the series, visit hartseries.org.
