Fifth House Ensemble's second installment of its In Transit series, #thisrocks, combines narrative with chamber music, allowing the audience to contribute to the story using social media. Re the first installment Reader music critic Peter Margasak wrote, "the superb local classical music group Fifth House Ensemble launches another of its beguiling conceptual, multimedia excursions, which function as subversive means to get people to hear classical music too often ignored outside of high ticket venues." The performance features three piano trios, one by Mendelssohn, and "Nivea Hair Care Styling Mousse" by Jacob Ter Veldhuis. —Julia Thiel See also Friday.
