<![CDATA[Concert: Zodiac Trio]]> Date: February 22, 2015

The members of the Zodiac Trio, an engaging young group (clarinet, violin, piano), were mentored by legendary violinist Isidore Cohen of the Beaux Arts Trio and the adventurous clarinetist David Krakauer.

Today, the Zodiac Trio enjoys an international concert schedule that spans three continents and presents an eclectic repertoire that mixes contemporary with the traditional. Described by Radio France as a “breathtaking ensemble of virtuosity and sensitivity,” the Trio performs Stravinsky’s Histoire du Soldat and Paul Schoenfield’s lively, klezmer-inspired work.

<![CDATA[SummerStage: Mastodon / Clutch / Graveyard]]> Date: May 19, 2015

Rumsey Playfield, Central Park
Tickets: $35 Advance / $40 Day of Show
Tickets On Sale Friday January 23, 2015 12PM

Art is a cyclical beast. The same can easily be said of Grammy Award nominated hard rock juggernaut Mastodon. The group’s four members recognize the importance of life’s omnipresent cycles on their sixth full-length album, Once More ‘Round the Sun. The band orbits around themes of loss and rebirth, twirling a sonic spiral of its signature robust riffing, hypnotically haunting soundscapes, triage of dynamic voices, and thundering seismic grooves. At the same time, this particular collection proves personal for Brann Dailor, Brent Hinds, Bill Kelliher, and Troy Sanders, with the very title saying something slightly different for each member.

Maryland rockers Clutch have been pushing the boundaries that define heavy rock music since the 4 original members got together in high school. Having been tagged hard rock, blues rock, southern stoner rock and alternative metal by press and fans across the world alike it is safe to say one thing… “What you see is what you get”, and what you get is a musical force that has been best described as the quintessential American rock band.
