Guest Notes from Golden Hornet Artistic Director Graham Reynolds
What’s great about it: Andre has collected an amazing array of Black composers and players from Texas, New York, and beyond, with backgrounds in jazz, classical, and more. Each has a unique personal voice and the whole experience will be unlike any other during the festival.
Why you should go: You should go to hear fantastic music, to support Black artists, and to hear the unique sound of a small big band meets chamber music ensemble.
You’ll love it if you love: You’ll love this if you love jazz, if you love classical, if you love strings, if you love horns, if you want to be surprised at how contemporary composition can be accessible and ground breaking at the same time.
