Firehouse 12 Records 10th Anniversary Festival

On April 29th and 30th, Firehouse 12 Records will present two nights of music celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the label’s first release by MacArthur-winning composer, saxophonist and musical visionary Anthony Braxton. On Saturday April 29th, Braxton will make a very rare New England appearance presenting new music for a septet – saxophone, cello, cornet, tuba, accordion and two harps. The following night, Sunday April 30th, the label has assembled an all-star group of some the leaders from the 10 years of releases. This group features Mary Halvorson (guitar), Taylor Ho Bynum (cornet), Myra Melford (piano), John Hébert (bass), Carl Maguire (piano), Nate Wooley (trumpet), and Tomas Fujiwara (drums) and will present new music composed especially for this ensemble and performance.
