7:30PM Iridescent is a new project featuring Nicole Mitchell and Christina Wheeler, combining flute, harp, electronics, and vocals in a living soundscape that is luminous and shifting. Seeking discovery, raw emotion, and cultural expression, Iridescent builds mosaics of harmonizing African rhythms, ethereal atmospheres, and freewheeling moments pointing towards inner awakening. Mitchell is a 2018 recipient of the “Champion of New Music” award from the American Composers Forum and has been hailed repeatedly as “Top Flutist of the Year” by DownBeat. A graduate of Harvard-Radcliffe Colleges and Manhattan School of Music, Wheeler has performed and recorded with artists including Chaka Khan, Vernon Reid, John Cale, and Marc Ribot and her work with David Byrne included international tours and television appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman.
9PM The Artifacts Trio featuring cellist Tomeka Reid, flutist Nicole Mitchell, and drummer Mike Reed – three of the most important and acclaimed musicians connected to the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians over the last two decades – celebrate the legacy of the AACM with their collective Artifacts Trio. “50 years later, Mike, Tomeka and I stand back and look at this beautiful legacy and we want to go into the portal and be a part of some of that past while we ride into the future with our own music. We’re all clearly committed to making our own music all the time, but it’s also a fun adventure to play some of these tunes that even the composers might have left behind for the new.” – Nicole Mitchell
