Amina Claudine Myers - solo (New York)

 Venue: Cooperators Hall, River Run Centre
DOUBLE BILL with Myra Melford
Time: 8:00pm
Price: Adult: $35 / Student/Senior: $25


 A solo concert by Amina Claudine Myers can bring down the house, just with the sheer power of her voice and piano. Myers grew up in Arkansas and Texas, and helped put herself through college by playing and singing in jazz clubs. In Chicago, she says, “the AACM just opened the door so that anything was possible.” She toured with the great saxophonists Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt, and collaborated with such musicians as Lester Bowie, Archie Shepp, and Charlie Haden. Myers has also premiered her own works such as her Improvisational Suite for Chorus, Pipe Organ and Percussion, When the Berries Fell for voices, percussionists, and keyboards, and the mixed-media piece Focus. A solo evening with the wide-ranging talent of this soulful and creative composer/singer/pianist is not to be missed!

Note: Ms Myers will do a pre-concert interview in the RRC Lobby at 7:00pm which is open to the public.
