ABOUT ROB FLAX http://www.robflax.com/ "Rob's unique blend of ancient and modern brings the violin into the 21st century with a dazzling array of digital technology seamlessly mated to the traditional world of wood, gut, and bone." —Stuart Rosenberg, WFMT Chicago
Rob Flax is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, composer, and educator with a playful heart and an open mind. He has shared the stage with many bands in many styles, including opening for B.B. King and Tower of Power, collaborations with dancers and filmmakers, and several projects as a bandleader. Rob is a recent graduate of the New England Conservatory (M.M. 2012 – Contemporary Improvisation, Music In Education).
ABOUT THE CONCERT Arrive at 3pm for the private art showing. The concert will begin at 4pm and last over one hour. As everything in the studio, including furniture and fixtures, is being offered for sale, we cannot guarantee a chair, so if you are able and willing please bring a floor pillow or yoga mat. On the flip side, that means there will be more space for dancing on the wood floor. Suggested donation is $15-25 CASH, sliding scale. You are welcome to bring food and beverages. Coffee and Panettone will be provided.
