Lift Concert Series to Reschedule Super 400 Concert; Warp Trio Performance Added

This series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. 

TROY – Due to circumstances beyond control, The Lift Concert Series performance by Super 400, scheduled for Wednesday, January 12, has been rescheduled. The new date is Wednesday, March 23, at 6 PM. Also, an additional concert has been added to the series. The chamber music group, Warp Trio, will perform on February 23, at 6 PM.

The Lift Concert Series, billed as “An Elevated Experience – Bringing the best of independent music in Troy,” made its debut in 2019. Though the season was interrupted due to the pandemic, the 2021-2022 series features fresh, independent music from regional performers, curated by local artists Sam Torres and Sophia Subbayya Vastek. These diverse musical offerings take place Wednesday nights at 6 PM. The audience is invited to enter the Hall through Franklin Alley, take the freight elevator to our backstage area, and be seated on stage, with the musicians, creating an intimate concert experience. Concerts are designed to last about an hour and, after the performance, concert-goers are encouraged to enjoy the rest of the evening at one of Troy’s many restaurants or breweries. General admission tickets are just $15 per show and seating is very limited.

The next performance in the series features a newly added performance from the Warp Trio.

Warp Trio, February 23, 2022 6 PM

The Warp Trio is described as “A talented group that exemplifies the genre-obliterating direction of contemporary classical music” (Columbia Free Times), they are an internationally touring cross-genre chamber music experience. Reflecting the combination of Juilliard trained members juxtaposed with members steeped in rock and jazz styles, the one of a kind trio (that even has a fourth member!) can be seen performing classical works in prestigious halls on the same tour where they headline a standing room only show at a rock venue. In addition to their electrifying public performances, they have gained a reputation for their innovative educational workshops with students from grade school through university level.

Super 400, March 23, 2022, 6 PM

The hard rock and blues band Super 400 is Kenny Hohman, guitar and vocals, Joe Daley on drums, and bassist Lori Friday.

Based out of upstate New York, the trio of Super 400 brings out a hybrid of power pop and classic rock that’s inspired by Cream, Jimi Hendrix, and the Allman Brothers. This year marks their 25 anniversary as a band, and in that time they have created a great history with the Capital Region and become homegrown rock and roll heroes.

The Westerlies – May 25, 2022, 6 PM  

A New York-based brass quartet comprised of childhood friends from Seattle: Riley Mulherkar and Chloe Rowlands on trumpet, and Andy Clausen and Willem de Koch on trombone. Formed in 2011, the self-described “accidental brass quartet” 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), The Westerlies 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). Equally at home in concert halls and living rooms, The Westerlies navigate a wide array of venues and projects with the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band, and the charm of a family sing-along.
