Music for a Sunday Afternoon
Sunday, February 23, 2014 - 6:00pm • Serkin Center
Join saxophonist and scholar Jason Robinson and his talented ensemble for an afternoon of jazz in the fertile overlaps between improvisation and composition, acoustic music and electronics, tradition and experimentalism. Robinson is a critically acclaimed and distinctive voice in a new generation of creative musicians in equal dialogue with jazz, popular music, experimental music, and electronic music. He has performed at festivals and prominent venues in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. An assistant professor of music at Amherst College, Robinson’s scholarly work unpacks the relationship between improvised and popular musics, experimentalism, and cultural identity.
