Since Casbah Durham has announced that they will cease hosting live music at the end of December 2013, Duke Performances Spring concerts with the Gerald Clayton Trio and yMusic that were scheduled for Casbah Durham have been moved to Motorco Music Hall at 723 Rigsbee Avenue, Durham, NC.

Showtime and date remain the same, and all previously purchased tickets will be honored.

November 5 Concert Features Duke Ph.D. Composers:
  • Ben Daniels
  • D. Edward Davis
  • Sid Richardson
  • Vladimir Smirnov
  • Kenneth D. Stewart
  • Justin Tierney

New York sextet yMusic combines "all the prestige and virtuosity of classical music degrees with all the attitude and energy of an indie rock band" (Paste Magazine). They thrive comfortably in both spheres, bringing classical polish to indie rock artists from Sufjan Stevens to Dirty Projectors and indie rock fire to contemporary classical composers from Gabriel Kahane to Nico Muhly. The culmination of a yearlong residency at Duke, this concert features the work of Ph.D. composition students in Duke’s Department of Music.

Made possible, in part, with support from the Department of Music at Duke University and the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts, Duke University.

** Please arrive early. Late seating restrictions may be in effect. **
