The Amy X-Perience @ JCC East Bay

  • JCC East Bay, Berkeley Branch

Solstice is thrilled to be joining our friend and collaborator, composer Amy X Neuburg for The Amy X-Perience! . 

Get your open ears and open minds on for an experimental-meets-traditional evening of music from a who's-who of local performer/composers working with widely varying genres and instrumentations. Curated by beloved Bay Area electronic diva Amy X Neuburg, expect a very X-esque evening of solos, duos, typos, and mojos… and show tunes! Of course!

Featured Guest Artists:

Amanda Chaudhary, manipulating a big bunch of electronic gadgets

Alex Kelly, cello with electronic processing, blending 21st-century soundscapes with jazz, klezmer, and "pretty cello"

Solstice, a female vocal ensemble with a world-y and wonderful repertoire

Each artist’s performance will be preceded by a short informal interview with Amy, and a final set will bring everyone together in various combinations to join her in songs by Jewish folks (no shortage of those!), including a “tutti” finale.

The evening's selections include the Spanish Renaissance "A un nino llorando al hielo", several Middle English Christmas texts set by 20th century composer Williametta Spencer, an original arrangement of Vince Guaraldi's "Christmas Time is Here" from the Charlie Brown Christmas special, in addition to beautiful and unusual carols from around the world. You will even hear a couple of winter-related pop tunes.  A beautiful and fun evening for everyone.
