Not unlike Ben Folds, Portland composer and performer Dan Sonenberg can hang with the classical and the popular crowds. Tonight he presents chamber music he’s penned in the past four years, including the world premiere of “Machine Shop,” a piece for marimba and “recorded electric guitar,” at Corthell Concert Hall, USM’s Gorham campus, at 8 p.m. Tix: $15 ($10 seniors, $5 students). 780-5555. usm.maine.edu.
