HEAR in NOW

A world-caliber collective of women working in a class almost entirely their own, HEAR in NOW is a string trio that composes and improvises fluidly between free jazz and contemporary classical, folk, and avant-garde music. HEAR in NOW has become a rare egalitarian ensemble for the three highly active musicians, who are as often singular bandleaders as they are side women. HEAR in NOW musicians are Mazz Swift on violin/vocals, Silvia Bolognesi on double bass, and Tomeka Reid on cello. This concert is presented in partnership with the Experimental Music Series, Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture, Arts, Science + Culture Initiative, and UChicago Arts fund.
