B'shnorkestra performs Global Concertos at Slavonian Hall November 1

Classical Tuesdays in Old Town is excited to bring B'shnorkestra (a 14-piece alternative chamber orchestra) to Old Town Tacoma on November 1 at 7:00pm.

Samantha Boshnack, trumpeter and composer, has written several  "Global Concertos" to showcase the guest soloist’s instrument and tradition. Her B’shnorkestra, conducted by Joshua Kohl, will perform three of these new works for Classical Tuesdays.

The concertos feature Thione Diop on West African talking drum, North Indian vocalist Srivani Jade and Thomas Marriott, American jazz trumpet.
Thione Diop, widely recognized for his powerfully expressive Djembe performances, is descended from an ancestral line of Griot drummers. He performed his Senegalese drums for Classical Tuesdays in Old Town Park in September 2013.
Srivani Jade grew up performing on stage and radio in India and now performs Hindustani Gayaki in both North America and India; she first performed for Classical Tuesdays in October 2008.
Thomas Marriott is highly regarded for his tone and improvisations and has toured world-wide. He performed for Earshot Jazz Festival on October 14 at Tula's Jazz Club.

B'shnorkestra performed the Global Concertos at Poncho Theater on October 24 for Earshot Jazz. 

There will be a limited edition, pre-release CD of the premiere performance of Global Concertos for sale at this concert. Global Concertos is also available for pre-order on Bandcamp and iTunes. Check out videos of the premiere at www.bshnorkestra.com.
