Pre and Post Concert Music

Pre-Concert March 13 Magda Giannikou with members of Snarky Puppy
        and guests from the Oberlin Performance and Improvisation Ensemble

World chansons infused with South American grooves and a twist of jazz.

Enjoy a post-concert party with great drinks, great compay, and live music entertainment. 

OPTION #1 (in the Grand Foyer)
March 13
— Snarky Puppy, Grammy Award-winning funk and jazz band, with singer and accordionist Magda Giannikou.  Snarky Puppy fuses a deep knowledge and respect for musical tradition with sonic and conceptual innovation in a way that is able to reach the most critical (or most carefree) audience.  The convergence of musicians from across AmericaWhite and Black which occurred while the band was in its adolescence at the University of North Texas, has naturally established a system of balance that instantly draws listeners to the music.  Here is raw funk and sensitive dynamics, relentless pocket and lyrical melodicism, lush harmony and soulful simplicity, and most importantly, a delicate mixture of composition, harmony, melody, and improvisation.


(in the Restaurant)
March 13 — Luca Mundaca, with a fusion of bossa nova, jazz, and samba.

Mix and match, or sample both!
