Thollem McDonas solo + trio with Patrick Breiner & Luke Polipnick

8pm, $8 admission

Monday, April 9th @ Audio For The Arts (7 S. Blair St.)

SBR Is thrilled to announce a concert with virtuoso pianist Thollem Mcdonas. Thollem tours perpetually as a solo pianist, vocalist and collaborator regularly covering much of North America and Europe playing his unique brand of composed and spontaneous post-classical and hyphenated music. In the past 6 years, he has added 23 albums to his discography on 10 different vanguard record labels in 4 different countries. His musical experiences are extremely diverse and his ever expanding variety of approaches to making music result in dramatically new and different outcomes. He plays in punk clubs, museums, concert halls and riots. He works regularly with film makers, dancers, poets and painters as well as a wide array of divergent musicians. He has won numerous awards and is the founding director of Estamos Ensemble, a Mexican-American cross border ensemble for musical exchange.

He has performed or recorded with an immense list of iconic contemporary improvisors, including William Parker, the Cline Brothers, Pauline Oliveros, Nate Wooley, Gino Robair, and many more. He will be joined for an improvised trio set with saxophonist Patrick Breiner and guitarist Luke Polipnick.
