Assistant professor of music and saxophonist Jason Robinson leads a trio consisting of himself, Hampshire College professor and saxophonist/clarinetist Marty Ehrlich and Amherst-based percussionist Bob Weiner, in a special multi-site networked concert with real-time collaborators at the University of California, San Diego. Using special audio and video networking technology over Internet2, the event is the first of three concerts that make up “Virtual Tour: A Reduced-Carbon-Footprint Concert Series,” a project produced and directed by UC San Diego professor and bassist Mark Dresser and UC Irvine professor and trombonist Michael Dessen. Performed simultaneously from two locations, the concert will take place at 10 p.m. (EDT) on Friday, April 5, featuring Robinson, Ehrlich and Weiner at Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Center at Amherst College. They will be joined by Dresser, Dessen, UC Irvine professor and flutist Nicole Mitchell and UC Berkeley professor and pianist Myra Melford, performing simultaneously from the Conrad Prebys Music Center Theatre at UC San Diego.
The concert is free of charge and open to the public and is co-sponsored by the 2013 Amherst College Copeland Colloquium, “Art and Place / The Place of Art.”
