ICE’s return to the Miller Theatre stage is a program of duos and trios that re-examine the basic animal nature of the five featured instruments. The intimate on-stage seating of Miller’s acclaimed Pop-Up series is the perfect setting for an audience to get inside of the instruments’ sound. A highlight of the event will be a premiere for Indian harmonium by ICE favorite Dai Fujikura!
