A PROJECT OF ZEITGEIST NEW MUSIC
JENNY KLUKKEN’S MARIMBA SONGS
Jenny Klukken and special musical guests will present an evening of marimba-centered music inspired by classical, Latin, jazz, and American folk music on Friday, Dec. 7 at Studio Z. Jenny’s compositions and arrangements give a new voice to the modern marimba, an otherwise classical/repertoire-based instrument, and leave room for improvisation and free-play.
In the spring of 2018, Jenny Klukken traveled to Paris to study marimba, composition, and improvisation with Eric Sammut, and to compose works for marimba that incorporated her unique approach to the instrument. The Studio Z performance will premiere works she composed in Paris, plus various works that have been collectively arranged by Jenny Klukken and guest musicians Robert Everest (guitar/vocals), Michael Bissonette (percussion), and The OK Factor (violin: Karla Colahan, cello: Olivia Diercks).
