Upcoming Music/Poetry Performances

Saturday, February 25, 2017 Downrange Telemetrics performs as part of the Punk-Ass Classical series.

7:30 pm  *  1322 Grand Ave, St Paul, MN 55105-2607

“This time around we gather in Saint Paul for music that plays with voice and language. At this performance we welcome Downrange Telemetrics, a far ranging experimental duo featuring vocalist Becca Barniskis and guitarist Nick Jaffe. In addition Singer/composer Bethany Battafarano brings “Oda a la paz”, a new collaboration with a group of singers and instrumentalists Nicolas Muñoz and Vladimir Garrido that was recently premiered at the Cedar Cultural Center. “Oda a la paz,” fuses western classical and Latin American musics, made of poems from contemporary Peru and Ecuadorian folklore.

We ask for a $5-$10 donation to help pay our performers and composers and to make Punk-Ass Classical a stable and reliable source of live music in the Twin Cities.

Punk-Ass Classical fosters a lively, diverse, and inclusive contemporary classical and experimental music community in basements, attics, and living rooms throughout the Twin Cities.”
