The Clarice Artist Partner Program presents
Tomeka Reid Stringtet
7416 Baltimore Ave
College Park, MD, 20740
This event is all ages
Cellist, composer, educator, and UMD School of Music alumna Tomeka Reid is described as "a remarkably versatile player" (Chicago Tribune) for her nimble improvisations with classical cello. Equally adept in classical and jazz contexts, Reid predominantly finds herself in experimental settings and composes for a wide range of instrumentation, from big band to chamber ensemble, that combines groove along with freer concepts. In this performance, Reid presents her Stringtet, combining seven string players with drums in a unique improvisatory ensemble.
