In partnership with Avant Arts, join us for a concert with HEAR in NOW is a world-class collective is a string trio that composes and improvises fluidly among free jazz and contemporary classical, folk music, and avant-garde. Be prepared to be engaged by their signature weaving of song, melody, and improvisation in a rich, unique, and diverse musical experience that speaks directly to your soul. Expect to be transported.

HEAR in NOW is a collaborative trio performing primarily original jazz-tinged avant-classical compositions. First brought together in the winter of 2009 by an Italian concert promoter for the WomaJazz festival in Salsomaggiore Terme, Italy, the trio, feeling a great sense of musical chemistry, have since kept the momentum going. Residing in three separate locales, the women of HEAR in NOW bring together elements from their individual regions for a unique sound experience by exploring free improvisation along with through-composed pieces.

HEAR in NOW is comprised of Mazz Swift (New York City) on violin/vocals, Silvia Bolognesi (Siena, Italy) on doublebass and Tomeka Reid (Chicago) on cello. As individuals all three are active performers in the international music scene, having performed and/or recorded with William Parker, Anthony Braxton, George Lewis, Nicole Mitchell, Butch Morris, Vernon Reid, Burnt Sugar and Members of the Black Rock Coalition, Enrico Rava, Keiko Bondjeson and the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians.

The Garden Concert series takes place in the beautiful and historic Cummer Gardens overlooking the St. Johns River. Guests are invited to bring chairs, picnics, and beverages to enjoy an evening of music under the stars. Reservations are required. See the following for further information. For further information or to register, please call 904.899.6038.
