Our final concert is a collaboration project with Professor Zeena Parkins’ Music Improvisation Ensemble II at Mills College and Professor Myra Melford’s composer/improviser group at UC Berkeley. This is a project that Parkins and Melford have wanted to do for many years and ironically here we are, in – hopefully – the final stages of the pandemic, still on Zoom, offering our work. 

Please join an online recepetion immediately following the presentation.
