From Detroit’s Trinosophes:

Sunday, Sept 8: Travis Laplante’s Battle Trance
Travis Laplante blew us away a couple years ago with his solo set of circular-breathing saxophone virtuosity. This time he returns with a quartet of saxophones, featuring Matthew Nelson, Jeremy Viner and Patrick Breiner in sophisticated arrangements of extended technique-based compositions. A trance is exactly how one patron described Laplante’s solo performance and we can expect that the effect will only be amplified by this ensemble.
Doors at 7:30; $5-10 suggested.

Sept 13 & 14: Ditto Ditto presents Detroit Art Book Fair
Sept 14: Modern chamber music with Lisa Raschiatore (clarinet), Jennifer Goltz (soprano), Mariah Mlynarek (piano) Dennis Carter (flute)
