Band Members to be listed

Conductor, arranger, composer, alto saxophonist, Jorge Sylvester, and vocal artist, composer, poet, Nora McCarthy, co-lead this creative orchestra of 20 stellar musicians from New York City and around the world. This eclectic group masterfully interprets the original compositions and arrangements of Sylvester and McCarthy. Conducted by Jorge Sylvester, the music challenges traditional formulas that are often subscribed to by other large ensembles. The music and arrangements take an open and harmonically unpredictable approach to composition, layering various textures across a network of rhythmic lines. The innovative and daring concepts that drive the music utilize a full spectrum of colors (sounds), textures (instruments) and movement (rhythms) to create a tangible image. They perform a mixture of obtuse compositional structures, open form blues and Afro-Caribbean-charged rhythmic pieces within a free collective expression that includes the voice as an instrument and poetry.

Featuring a new installment of 2017: "TODAY IN AMERICA" - a living poem written and delivered by Nora McCarthy
