In 1997, the celebrated illustrated book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak was interpreted by Randall Woolf into a musical score for a ballet version of the story. Thursday at 7 p.m., Concert:Nova will present this music accompanied by lively, gestural illustrations by Till Lassmann at the Contemporary Arts Center. Woolf’s music is described as “an electro-acoustic mix of Classical, Rock, and avant-garde,” which seems well suited to the Concert:Nova musicians, many of whom play as part of the Cincinnati Symphony and the Chamber Orchestra. Concert:Nova is a local treasure that brings disciplined, experienced musicians together to explore the outer edges and multiple possibilities of contemporary Chamber music. Like many adventuresome endeavors, there is risk in the work they produce, and for that they deserve support. $20 for the general public, but if you are an Enjoy the Arts member, a CAC member or a student with a valid ID, the cost is lowered to $10. %u2028
