Spadine, a revolving performance ensemble, made their Connecticut debut with a collection of works for handbells, water glasses, musical saw, slide whistle organ, automated carillon, violin, toy piano, harp, percussion, and voice. Interspersed with the ensemble pieces was a set of interludes for solo performer, presented together for the first time.
