Description

New York City premiere performance of "Voyages", a new work by the Ben Kono Group made possible by the 2018 Chamber Music America New Jazz Works Commissioning and Ensemble Development Grant. The narrative of the suite is inspired by the writings of Rev.Juhei Caleb Kono who immigrated to the U.S. from Japan during a very turbulent time for Asian Americans in this country, and who faced unique cultural, political and economic challenges. The core ensemble of Ben Kono (woodwinds/composition), Pete McCann (guitar), Mike Holober (piano), Matt Clohesy (bass), and Jared Schonig (drums) will be joined by a string quartet: Sara Caswell, Meg Okura (violins), Lois Martin (viola) and Jody Redhage Ferber (cello).
