Thursday, February 8, 2018
Krannert Art Museum Main Level, Rosann Gelvin Noel Gallery 500 E. Peabody Dr. Champaign, IL 61820

A pioneering artist in cross-cultural collaborative music, Steve Gorn has performed Indian Classical Music and new American Music on the bansuri bamboo flute, soprano saxophone, and clarinet in concerts and festivals throughout the world. As a visiting CAS Improvisers Exchange artist, an initiative of the Center for Advanced Study, Gorn leads ensemble members in music reflective of his landmark Indian-Jazz fusion recording, Asian Journal, his 2011 Grammy winning recording, “Miho–Journey to the Mountain,” with Dhruba Ghosh and the Paul Winter Consort, and of his gurus, the late bansuri master Sri Gour Goswami, of Kolkata, and Pt. Raghunath Seth of Mumbai, whom he often accompanied in concert.

This event is free (donations accepted) and open to the public.

This concert is presented with support from the George A. Miller Committee and the CAS Improvisers Exchange Initiative. Additional sponsorship provided by the Center for Advanced Studies, Kathleen Harleman, Analog Outfitters, School of Music, and Krannert Art Museum with in-kind support provided by WEFT, 90.1 FM.AIR MAX PLUS
