FRESH SOUND SPRING 2012: "FOCUS ON NEW YORK"

 

Fresh Sound is not stuck in any particular style of music but is dedicated to bringing to San Diego music that is new, and as we proclaim, fresh. We plan to lavish you with glorious sounds, therefore we’ll just say that the music will be composed and improvised, acoustic and electronic, contemporary and traditional; the concerts will include music which grooves and doesn't, is really loud and very quiet, some familiar and often not. All of it will be delicious and will leave you hungering for more.

As Fresh Sound series consists of concerts that focus on a theme, the upcoming Fresh Sound music series will feature musicians from New York. Bonnie Wright, Director and Curator of Fresh Sound, recently returned from a six month sojourn in New York where she explored the city by attending 160 concerts, theater and dance events. Wright now wants to share with her fellow San Diegans some of the great music she experienced on her trip.

The first two concerts are March 6th and April 9th (see below for details). In May and June we hope to include New York musicians David Shively, percussionist; Mary Rowell, violinist and Eve Beglarian, composer, electronics; Evan Ziporyn, clarinets; and maybe Caleb Burham, violin; and Tristan Perich. - Dates to be determined, check back often.
