If you didn’t get to hear the Bad Plus reinvent Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring in Durham’s Reynolds Theater on March 26, the wait is over. At 6:30 this evening, Newark-based public radio station WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM will broadcast and stream the Duke premiere—which remains the sole performance of On Sacred Ground: Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring at the time of this writing—alongside an interview with the band, on The Checkout. You can stream the premiere live at 6:30, and it will be archived on the site tomorrow morning, at which time we’ll update this post with a link. [Update: Click here to listen to the archived stream.] Whether you’re experiencing On Sacred Ground for the first time or reliving it without the important visual element, we’re eager to hear what you think.
