BRATTLEBORO- On Friday, April 19, at 8 pm, at the Open Music Collective, California trombonist and composer Michael Vlatkovitch makes a rare New England appearance. He will be joined by three distinct figures in the Pioneer Valley creative music scene who are dedicated to both performing and encouraging younger generations of musicians through their teaching and research. A first time meeting as a group, they are especially excited to present their collaboration at the Open Music Collective, a unique grassroots educational organization dedicated to experimentation and tradition.

Saxophonist Jason Robinson is an acclaimed and distinctive voice in a new generation of creative musicians equally interested in improvisation and composition, acoustic music and electronics, tradition and experimentalism. Robinson’s music displays a deep sense of history in the midst of creative, free-wheeling exploration.

Drummer and percussionist Bob Weiner has toured and performed with Harry Belafonte, Itzhak Perlman, Betty Buckley, Jon Lucien, Dianne Reeves, Andy Statman, Rebecca Paris, Kenny Werner, Bob Moses, and many others. He has taught at the Drummers Collective, New York City, New England Conservatory, Boston, and Berklee College of Music, Boston.

The concert is $10 for general admission and is held in a handicap accessible suite 335 in the Cotton Mill. Call (802) 254- 5054 or email for more information.
