The Westerlies, a most innovative brass quartet of trumpet and trombone players who skirt the boundaries of jazz, classical, and pop, have paired with Theo Bleckmann, one of today’s most in-demand composers/vocalists. Together these two powerhouses have created a contemporary musical performance called “This Land.” Highlighting the power of music to invigorate protest movements and provide internal solace amidst external turmoil, “This Land” comprises cleverly arranged songs by Bertolt Brecht, Joni Mitchell, Woody Guthrie, Agha Shahid Ali, and many others.
This concert will also be streamed. Performance subject to change.
