June 18 @ 7:00 pm
Internationally acclaimed jazz pianist Kevin Harris interweaves traditional and contemporary music styles, visual arts, electronic media, science, and language, distinguishing his music and rendering each performance a unique experience, meant to activate the audience’s senses and personal curiosity. Harris’ most innovative project as a composer is “Roots, Water and Sunlight: A Contemporary Octet Expedition through the Expressions of James Baldwin”. This three-movement piece uses powerful spoken-word samples from American author James Baldwin as the foundation for a wind octet accompanied by a rhythm section and digital instrumentation.Enjoy Kevin Harris’ artistry at the Groton Hill Music Center on June 18 at 7PM.Share
