    Name: Electric Earth Concerts presents Weather Vest
    Date: October 6, 2018
    Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    On Saturday, October 6, 2018, at 7:30 pm, Electric Earth Concerts presents Weather Vest at the Dublin Community Church in Dublin, New Hampshire. Weather Vest, direct from New York City, is a mixed ensemble of winds & brass that mingles the common elements of classical chamber music, small group jazz, and folk music, for a concert liberated from traditional boundaries. Created as a collaboration between classical and jazz musicians, the group features an unusual and flexible instrumentation: soprano and alto saxophones with tenor and bass trombones. Their repertoire illustrates a curatorial sensibility by reclaiming and reconstructing lesser known gems from throughout musical history, juxtaposing them with original compositions and commissioned projects. All four members contribute arrangements, ranging from solo piano and guitar pieces to the music of symphony orchestras and big bands. Weather Vest emphasizes an inventive, democratic approach toward programming by re-categorizing composers, aligning Shostakovich and Lili Boulanger with Raymond Scott and Thelonious Monk, Hank Williams with Stravinsky and Morton Feldman, and many others. Incorporating free improvisations that create associations between disparate musical and cultural lineages is a central theme, linking genres, composers, and contemplative questions, both past and present. Weather Vest's hope is to render music of the past relevant, meditative, and alive in its relationship to the present. Admission is $25, and may be purchased online at www.electricearthconcerts.org or at the door. Middle and high school students may attend for free.
