Event description

Award winning saxophonist Nick Russoniello presents a virtuosic tour de force of melodies, counterpoint and grooves. Armed with a loop station and multiple saxophones, Russoniello journeys through music from baroque to beatbox and beyond. Audiences will be taken behind the scenes of the creative process as the music is constructed layer by layer before their eyes (and ears!). Russoniello reimagines the music of Telemann, Elena Kats-Chernin, Katy Abbot and Creedence Clearwater.
