Erik Jekabson's Vista Nonet

Art Songs & Chamber Jazz

The Berkeley Hillside Club is excited to present an old friend with a new ensemble. Composer and trumpet player Erik Jekabson has performed numerous times in our concert series over the years and we've become great fans of his compositions and his playing. For this performance he is bringing his Vista Nonet, a nine piece ensemble including vocalists, violin, trumpet, reeds, vibraphone, and a jazz rhythm section. They will be forming Erik's original compositions, including musical settings of poems by Frank O'Hara and Elizabeth Bishop. So, art song vocals and jazz improvisation; I'm really looking forward to this one! Don't miss these remarkable artists performing in our historic and acoustically-excellent hall.

The Ensemble:

Erik Jekabson - trumpet
Becca Burrington & Alexis Jenson - vocals
Alisa Rose- violin
Matt Renzi - woodwinds
Dillon Vado - vibes
Jeffrey Burr- guitar
Jeff Denson - bass
Alan Hall - drums.

Admission: $20 general, $15 students & seniors, $10 Hillside Club members
