Free Planet Radio

May 5, 2017 • 8:00 p.m.

For more than a decade, Free Planet Radio has been bringing its innovative world-jazz-classical music blend to festivals, concert stages, and classrooms – and now to the Mainstage Series in a benefit performance for the Y.E.S. (Youth Education Scholarship) Fund. Expertly weaving jazz-style improv with the subtleties of Western classical music and Middle Eastern, Indian, and North African rhythms and melodies, the ensemble
comprises two-time Grammy winner Eliot Wadopian on electric and string basses, River Guerguerian on an extensive array of global percussion instruments, and Chris Rosser on the 17-stringed Indian dotar, Turkish cumbus oud, guitar, piano, and melodica. Performing mostly original compositions, the trio always maintains a sense of accessibility, spontaneity, and easy engagement as it mines the depths of world music.

The winners of the 2017 Emerging Artists Fund scholarship for graduating seniors will be announced during the performance. And a fundraising raffle for the Y.E.S. Fund will be held in the lobby the evening of this performance.
