What happens when three fearless, innovative virtuosos put their minds and hearts together to make music? The result is a breathtaking concert that will have your pulse pounding, feet tapping, and your mind expanding in ways you didn’t expect.

Making her third festival appearance, harpist Bridget Kibbey has already formed an international reputation for expanding the possibilities of her instrument. Along with appearing at prestigious festivals everywhere, she has appeared as a soloist with major orchestras and has commissioned ground-breaking new works for the harp.

Benito Meza, Bridget Kibbey, and Samuel Torres have come together in CHALACA, a brand new collaboration featuring clarinet, harp, and percussion, to explore the confluence of cultures found in South America and the Caribbean. Following the migration of rhythm from Africa and Europe, to the Andean Mountains, to the Amazon...and right to the heart of New York City, CHALACA is a celebration of the composers who have immigrated to the United States from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela...alongside the folk masters who inspired them.

These three musicians will present a program of original arrangements that defy musical categories.
