B’shnorkestra returns this fall with two shows featuring the Global Concertos project and more.
Composer Samantha Boshnack and her B’shnorkestra (a 14-piece alternative chamber orchestra) perform Global Concertos: an evening of music featuring an international tour de force of soloists. Boshnack has written five works, each showcasing a guest soloist’s instrument and tradition: Thione Diop – West African talking drum, Christos Govetas – Greek clarinet, Srivani Jade – North Indian vocals, Julio Jauregui – Latin American piano and Thomas Marriott – American jazz trumpet. In Global Concertos each artist brings their individual voice to the B’shnorkestra to create a new “all world” sound.
