The Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival On the Go Series presents, Concert Black at the
Kenny Lake Community Hall on Monday, July 14 at 7:30pm. Concert Black will also be
doing a mini-demonstration and performance on Tuesday, July 15 at 9:00am at the Kenny
Lake Library. This Brooklyn-based trio will be joined by Fairbanks-born accomplished
violinist, Andie Springer.
Concert Black draws upon its members’ diverse musical backgrounds for their song
writing, improvisation, and commissioning of today’s emerging composers. The group
has fashioned an individual sound through surprising instrumental combinations: layered
loops and bass harmonics are interwoven with flute melodies, punctuated by drums, and
tied together with ethereal three-part vocals.
Concert Black has been featured on music festivals and concert series throughout the
country, including Contagious Sounds (NYC), Music With a View (NYC), Ear Heart
Music (NYC), Berkshire Fringe (VT), and Color Field Festival (WI), as well as the
upcoming Wild Shore Festival for New Music (AK). In addition to their classical
training, flutist Domenica Fossati is a veteran of the NYC Afrobeat and Indie Rock
scenes (Underground System, The City and Horses), bassist/turntablist Lisa Dowling is
an active hip hop DJ and singer/songwriter (Lil Miss Dolemite, kills to kisses), and
percussionist Owen Weaver performs as an electro-acoustic soloist and rock drummer
(MATA Interval Series, Glenn Branca Ensemble).
Join us for an unforgettable evening of unique, dynamic chamber music! For more
