Each spring, Charleston, South Carolina’s historic theaters, churches, and outdoor spaces host performances by renowned artists as well as emerging performers in opera; theater; dance; and chamber, symphonic, choral, and jazz music.

My trio with Brian Seeger and Roland Guerin will tell stories about the Crescent City’s most important traditions through the voices of our instruments. Imagine a very humid version of Jimmy Giuffre’s experiments with calrinet, bass & guitar?
