Michael Moss: ENSEMBLE BOWS
Jazz musician and composer Michael Moss returns to Bridge Street Theatre’s intimate “Priscilla” Mainstage for a performance with his latest group, Ensemble Bows for Strings and Piano. By undertaking an in-depth study of harmony, orchestration and the 12-tone music of Arnold Schoenberg during the pandemic, Moss has now realized a long-standing dream of bringing orchestral elements into his work. Ensemble Bows will present a program of Moss’s all-original compositions for chamber jazz ensemble performed by an incredible roster of internationally acclaimed musicians: Jason Kao Hwang (violin), Anthony Coleman (piano), James Ilgenfritz (contrabass), Lenny Mims (cello), and Moss himself on clarinet, bass clarinet, and a little bit on snake charmer! One-night-only, Saturday December 3 at 7:30pm, at Bridge Street Theatre, located at 44 West Bridge Street in Catskill. All seats are $15 and can be reserved in advance by visiting bridgest.org/michael-moss-2023/ or may be purchased at the door one-half-hour before curtain time on the day of the performance.
