The Monktail Creative Music Concern will be holding a benefit concert featuring internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Wayne Horvitz performing a rare set of solo piano music. The concert will be held at Gallery 1412 on Capitol Hill, November 14th at 7pm. The evening will also feature cellist, composer and installation artist Paul Rucker and pianist/vocalist Stephen Fandrich.
A collective of composers, musicians and artists based out of Seattle, WA, the Monktail Creative Music Concern have been the driving force behind a surge in creative, uncompromising original music from the Pacific Northwest in recent years. They won a 2006 Earshot Golden Ear Award for Concert of the Year for their performance of music by innovator Raymond Scott at last year’s Earshot Jazz Festival. They hosted the blockbuster free concert series Sounds Outside throughout the summer of 2007 at the newly refurbished Cal Anderson Park on Capitol Hill. And in the past year MCMC have released four new CD’s on their Monktail Records label.
The proceeds from this event will go toward maintaining the administrative side of the collective’s current and future activities. MCMC have tirelessly propagated, promoted, produced and preserved creative/experimental music in the Seattle area for over 10 years. This is an opportunity for the arts community to show their support by helping to sustain the collective’s vital activities.
