CHAMBER MUSIC | 'Common Ground' 

A joint presentation by contemporary classical ensemble fivebyfive and jazz-world fusion band The Rita Collective, "Common Ground" is guaranteed to feature music you've never heard live before. Area composers Dean Keller (The Rita Collective), Eric Polenik (fivebyfive), and Marc Webster wrote new works exclusively for this event. That lineup alone would be cause for celebration, but the real coup here is an ultra-rare performance of the late, Ithaca-born composer Julius Eastman and his brilliant, jazz-minimalist piece "Stay on It." In a city full of engaging concerts, "Common Ground" stands out as particularly bold and inventive.

The Rita Collective and fivebyfive will perform on Sunday, February 11, at The Clover Center, 1101 Clover Street. 3 p.m. $10. 473-3200; fivebyfivemusic.com; ritacollective.com.
