Mason Bates's KC Jukebox: Music & Instruments of Victor Gama
Renowned composer and instrument builder Victor Gama brings his unique vision to KC Jukebox with a piece informed by his upbringing in Angola, performed on an array of beautifully constructed instruments. The program also includes Mason's Difficult Bamboo, a work inspired by Gama's music that adds kalimba and other exotic percussion to a traditional chamber ensemble; Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw's Valencia, a fruity celebration of the natural world; and a solo set by indie player Mike Savino of Tall Tall Trees. Following the concert, stay for the free after party!
