Sounds like Stories

Renowned faculty members from the Evolution: Classical program bring together music, storytelling, improvisation, dance and projections in a captivating presentation format that coalesces tradition with innovation and reaches beyond convention.

Host Tom Allen weaves a narrative that brings together music performed by vocalist Patricia O’Callaghan, percussionists Aiyun Huang and Anders Åstrand, violinist/dancer Parmella Attariwala, pianist Megumi Masaki, visual media artist Sigi Torinus, and the Gryphon Trio.
