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).
