Samantha Boshnack premieres an evening of new music featuring an international tour de force of soloists accompanied by her beloved alternative chamber orchestra. Boshnack has written five new works, each showcasing a guest soloist’s instrument and tradition: Thione Diop – West African talking drum, Christos Govetas – Greek clarinet, Srivani Jade – North Indian vocals, Julio Jauregui – Latin American piano and Thomas Marriott – American jazz trumpet. In Global Concertos each artist brings their individual voice to the B’shnorkestra to create a new “all world” sound.

Led to Sea presents its third full length album to you, with the help of some of Seattle's most bad-ass musicians! Alex Guy (vocals and viola) will be joined by Maria Scherer Wilson (cello), Paris Hurley (violin), Adam Kozie (drums), Sam Boshnack (trumpet), Beth Fleenor (clarinet) and Emily Westman (bass and percussion)! You do not want to miss this extravaganza of beauty and chaos! Rounding out the bill are two of Seattle's most talented composers and musicians, Tomo Nakayama and Lori Goldston. Tomo Nakayama is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter from Seattle, Washington. Fog On The Lens is his first solo album, made after nearly a decade fronting beloved Seattle chamber-pop band Grand Hallway, and composing for an acting in Lynn Shelton’s Sundance Grand Jury nominated film "Touchy Feely". http://tomonakayama.tumblr.com/ Lori Goldston: Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, possessor of a restless, semi-feral spirit, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher based in Seattle. A deep, untidy beauty propels her voice as a cellist which is —amplified or acoustic— full, textured, committed and original. A perpetual inquirer, she wanders recklessly across borders that separate genre, discipline, time and geography, performing in clubs, cafes, galleries, arenas, concert halls, sheds, ceremonies, barbecues, and stadiums; she toured with Nirvana and appeared with them in “Unplugged in New York”. http://www.lorigoldston.com/

“But “10,000 Weight In Gold” is the masterpiece presentation of the The Head And The Heart’s four basic food groups: guitar riffs, Chris Zasche’s bass groove, bright piano melody, and blended strings (Charity Rose Thielen’s violin, Maria Scherer Wilson’s cello, and Eyvind Kang’s viola and violin are magnificent wherever they appear) punctuated by drums that performance-enhance all of the above.”
