CBCB
Composers Concordance Meets Bruka Band
An Evening of New Music, Media, & Art

Composers Concordance and Bruka Band will join forces for an evening to explore a variety of angles to the art of performing today. The music traditions include classical, world, jazz, and hip-hop, the cultures of the Balkans, South and North America, interweaving art forms of music, literature, dance, visual projections and photography.

Composers Concordance and Bruka Band are two energetic, daring and diverse collectives of new music composers, performers and new art advocates.

For CBCB, they gather an exciting array of New York based musicians and artists including: Bruka Band’s Milica Paranosic, Margaret Lancaster, Jonathan Zalben, Rubens Salles, Richard Manoia,  Lauri Galbreath and Peter Christian Hall; and Composers Concordance’s Dan Cooper, Gene Pritsker, Dan Barrett, Lynn Bechtold and Patrick Grant.

For this event the group will perform Patrick Grant‘s
“Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms”
for violin, cello, electric guitar, 7-string electric bass, & piano
