ABOUT THE EVENT:

If you haven’t, you won’t want to miss it. The show is free and will be preceded at 6 p.m. by flutist Yukari with drummer Carlo Costa.
ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:
Kyoko Kitamura is a vocal improviser and composer residing in Brooklyn. She does weird things with her voice and is often a side-person for various amazing musicians. Her own songs have mildly disturbing content which may stem from her experience as a one-time war-reporter.
Trombonist Jen Baker has performed internationally in ensembles spanning from orchestra to free jazz. Awarded a Meet the Composer grant, she commissioned and performed new solo works on the east and west coasts. Bakerâ€™s solo multiphonic project, Lyrical Vibrations, has been performed around the country and can also be heard on her solo album, Blue Dreams.
