An intriguing mix of brilliantly constructed original compositions and including the select works by other noted composers. Artistically engaging music and pleasing to listen to, this ensemble has found that right balance between art, creativity and engagement.
As music professors and active educators, the ensemble is available for music master classes and clinics in the community or at educational institutions. Subjects include instrumental pedagogy, music theory, jazz improvisation and the sharing of insights from the myriad of training and real-world professional experiences each ensemble member inherently possesses.
TECHNICAL RIDER / CONTRACTS
This section contains all of the major logistical considerations to get our ensemble engaged at your venue. Most of our performances will require a signed contract be executed in good faith by both parties. This contract can be one that your organization already utilizes, or one that we provide. Please note that as members of the American Federation of Musicians, we utilize contracts that are based upon A.F. of M. guarantees and standards where performance fees and work conditions are concerned. Don’t let union membership “scare” you, it is an assurance to you of both, the high quality of our music and our professionalism as business people.
We require the normal sized (20’ x 20’) stage area to present.
ELECTRICAL POWER REQUIREMENT
We require access to three outlets of grounded 120v electricity.
