Tomeka Reid Quartet @ Cuyahoga Valley National Park Concert Series

February 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This concert is co-sponsored by Tri-C Jazzfest and the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Chicago based cellist, composer, and educator, Tomeka Reid has been described as “a remarkably versatile player,” (Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune). Equally adept in classical and jazz contexts, Ms. Reid predominantly finds herself in experimental and improvisatory settings and composes for a wide range of instrumentation, from big band to chamber ensemble. Ms. Reid’s music combines her love for groove along with freer concepts.

Ms. Reid is an integral part of Dee Alexander’s Evolution Ensemble, Nicole Mitchell’s Black Earth Ensemble/Strings, Mike Reed’s Loose Assembly, the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) Great Black Music Ensemble, and co-leads the internationally recognized string trio, Hear in Now with performances in Poznan, Poland; Paris, France; Rome, Venice, Milan, Italy; Soazza, Switzerland; and in the US: Chicago, New York, and Vermont. In addition to the aforementioned ensembles, Ms. Reid performs with many of today’s forward-thinking musicians in the world of jazz and creative music, including Anthony Braxton, George Lewis, Roscoe Mitchell, Jeb Bishop, Myra Melford, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Denis Fournier, Edward Wilkerson and Harrison Bankhead.

Tomeka Reid, cello

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Concert begins at 8:00 p.m.
