News As Yet Quintet Performs, January 30
Marlboro, VT -- (January 21, 2011) -- Marlboro College will present a concert by the As Yet Quintet on Sunday, January 30 at 8:00pm in Ragle Hall.
The As Yet Quintet brings five prominent Vermont musicians together for a creative medley of Middle Eastern, Caribbean, and jazz sounds. All five contribute individual compositions to the quintet's program of entirely original pieces. As Yet draws on diverse genres ranging from Latin grooves to Turkish modes, Balkan rhythms played on Cuban wooden boxes, and blues with a touch of Bulgarian choral singing.
Musicians in the As Yet Quintet are Marlboro College alumna Anna Patton on clarinet, Miamon Miller on violin, Todd Roach on dumbek and frame drums, Julian Gerstin on congas and tanbou, and Eugene Uman on piano. Uman is also currently a visiting professor of music at Marlboro.
