Lost in the Trees with Chamber Orchestra

When: Fri., Dec. 7, 8 p.m. 2012

This season, Duke Performances has commissioned performances by Megafaun, the Mountain Goats, Tift Merritt and New Music Raleigh. Tonight's premiere gives the music of Chapel Hill's Lost in the Trees—or, more specifically, singer, songwriter, composer, performer and bandleader Ari Picker—the full gravity of a chamber ensemble. Picker's music thrives upon extreme dynamics, with keening peaks and withering lows working in tandem to create miniature symphonies within an indie rock framework. This elaborate expansion should turn Lost in the Trees' topographical map of Picker's emotions into a real-life landscape. If you've been underwhelmed by the band's past, this is an enticing invitation to try again. —Grayson Currin
