The Irene and Billy Wolf Concert
A free outdoor jazz performance on picturesque Rockport Harbor, marking the Town of Rockport’s 125th Anniversary. Renowned saxophonist and David Bowie collaborator Donny McCaslin will perform with an ensemble of artists from around the world brought together by the Creative Ensemble Collective, a nonprofit organization fostering exceptional and diverse music. The program will feature a number of Creative Ensemble Collective original compositions that have been developed over the past three years at workshops around the globe, with a selection of standards from the Great American Song Book.
Opening for CEC and Donny McCaslin is Rockport’s own Push Farther Project, Alex Wilder and Will Foote, vocals and guitar; Nora Willauer, vocals and cello whose mission it is to "collaborate and create with others and to increase the number of beautiful songs on the planet." Their goal is to craft documentary songs from people’s experiences and spoken words. Bay Chamber is proud to support these young, creative and inspiring musicians from our own community.
