HDCM Series: Ensemble Paradiso

Chamber music is traditionally written for small groups of musicians with no conductor, and only one performer to a part. The final performance in the High Desert Chamber Music Series this season concludes with Ensemble Paradiso. The L.A.-based group makes its HDCM debut featuring celebrated violinist Jessica Guideri, formerly of the award winning Fry String Quartet. Ensemble Paradiso aims to present innovative and varied performances with a wide range of appeal. HDCM founder and violinist Isabelle Senger joins the group for this performance. Join members of Ensemble Paradiso at 6:45 for a pre-program talk, which is free for all ticket holders. 7:30-9 pm. Friday, May 15. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. $35 general, $10 student/child.

Brother Grand

Psychedelic folk rock. Yep, you read that right. Brother Grand pushes the limits of genre to create an engaging live musical performance. The California-based duo twists what they call "Film Score Soul" into their passionate and honest brand of folk rock. The soulful vocals bring emotion and life to the music, whether the band's playing a stripped down song with just acoustic guitar and upright bass, or integrating live looping and thunderous drum beats. 9 pm. Tuesday, May 19. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

Slick Rick

In addition to being a celebrated lyricist, Slick Rick persists through popular music. Hear samples of his beats in hit singles from TLC, The Notorious B.I.G., and Snoop Dogg. The English-born rapper also has dozens of shout-outs in popular songs by everyone from Amy Winehouse to Lauren Hill to Lil Wayne. Slick Rick's raps have earned him spots on numerous lists outlining greatest lyricists. Slick Rick's narrative storytelling brought a new element to hip-hip, as did his clear enunciation. Truly a hip-hop legend, don't miss Slick Rick. 9 pm. Tuesday, May 19. Domino Room, 55 NW Greenwood Ave. $25/adv, $28/door.
