NakedEye Ensemble - Storylines Crossing

  • Nancy Manocherian's - The Cell 338 West 23rd Street New York, NY, 10011 United States

Six NYC premieres by Richard Belcastro, Zach BrowningMoritz EggertMonica PearceJude Traxler, and Randall Woolf

“NakedEye’s evening Storylines Crossing reflects both the journey of the ensemble into their point of convergence in NakedEye, and the many stories that will be told in the works featured. Some of them have been written for the group, others have become a staple of our repertoire. All ofthem have a story to tell. Because members of the group come from diverse stylistic backgrounds, our music reflects the rock, jazz, experimental, and classical genres that define each musician separately. For us and for composers writing for us, this is a journey where storylines cross from the personal into the musical.” –NakedEye
