Duo w/ Matthew Welch @ Studio Grand, Oakland

Join us for the next installment of Oakland Freedom Jazz Society! Our weekly Monday night live music series! 

Matthew Welch is a composer of innovative opera and genre-resisting concert music. Praised by the New York Times as “exquisitely ethereal” and “border-busting; catchy,” Welch's music has been performed in the US, Canada, South America, Europe and Asia. Mixing his virtuosity on the Scottish bagpipes with his additional specialties in Indonesian gamelan, experimental, classical, rock and improvised musics, Welch’s compositional sound is worldly and eclectic in material, yet personal and seamless in style. Named one of “14 artists changing the future of opera,” by Huffington Post, Welch has collaborated with musical luminaries Anthony Braxton, Alvin Lucier, Ikue Mori, Julia Wolfe, and John Zorn.
