The 2018 Ecstatic Music Festival kicked off on Jan 27th, with a powerhouse collaboration between songwriter Xenia Rubinos and Adam Schatz's high-energy big band Civil Engineering.

Kaufman Music Center's Ecstatic Music Festival returns for its eighth year, bringing together composers and performers from different musical genres for nine, one-night-only performances featuring world premieres, new arrangements and the exclusive opportunity to hear artists discuss their work. Starting Jan 27 and running through Apr 26, 2018, the festival, hailed as "the alt-classical world's main showcase" (The New York Times) and "a kind of heaven for show-goers in search of the ever-elusive, one-of-a-kind live music experience" (The Village Voice), will feature collaborations from more than 75 artists, including Kronos Quartet, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, Margaret Leng Tan, Glasser, Xenia Rubinos, Mantra Percussion, Mahogany L. Browne, Carla Kihlstedt, Patrick Zimmerli, Ethan Iverson, Buke & Gase's Arone Dyer, and many more.
