Lori Goldston Performance

Performance: 7:30-9 pm on Thursday, June 4
Location: The New Foundation Seattle
Admission: Free event. RSVP by May 19 to info@thenewest.org. Space is limited.

In response to Mark Mitchell’s project Burial 2, celebrated cellist Lori Goldston will compose and record an emotionally charged suite of short pieces dealing with the idea of freedom of movement. Lori and special guests Greg Campbell, Stuart Dempster, Eyvind Kang, and Jessika Kenney, will deliver a live debut of this newly commissioned work in Mark’s studio.

Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, possessor of a restless, semi-feral spirit, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher from Seattle. Her voice as a cellist, amplified or acoustic, is full, textured, committed and original. A relentless inquirer, she wanders recklessly across borders that separate genre, discipline, time and geography, performing in clubs, cafes, galleries, arenas, concert halls, sheds, ceremonies, barbecues, and stadiums.
