San Francisco: Happy Hour with the A/B Duo

Join us for Happy Hour with genre-bending, face-melting, happy-making music and drinks at the Center for New Music

The bi-coastal A/B Duo (flutist Meerenai Shim from the SF Bay and percussionist Chris Jones from Rochester, NY) will premiere new works commissioned from Ivan Trevino and Matthew Joseph Payne in a cabaret-style setting.  Enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks while you listen to the new and surprising works.  

We will premiere two new pieces: Echoloquacious for flute, percussion and Gameboy (LSDJ) by Bay Area chiptune artist and composer Matthew Joseph Payne and Things We Dream About  for flute and percussion by Ivan Trevino, rock drummer, composer and member of the cello rock band Break of Reality. Both of these pieces were written especially for A/B Duo in 2013. In addition, we will perform metalstaind for flute and percussion by Adam Cuthbert.

Come to the Happy Hour, listen to A/B Duo premiere the music, discuss the compositions with the artists and your friends and hang out at the Center for New Music.

Center for New Music (55 Taylor St., San Francisco) 

Tickets $20 ($10 for members) include drinks and snacks.
