This week Alfredo Oyaguez (piano), Andrew Smith (cello), Tom Stone (violin/viola), Cecily Ward (violin), Doris Stevenson (piano), and Zuill Baily (cello) continue to share their talents with us, and are joined by Trio Jinx. This unique classically-based trio consists of Louna Dekker-Vargas (flutes), Ledah Finck (violin/viola/composition), and Yoshiaki Horiguchi (double bass) and has been described as “turning the classical concert into a jam session” through the use of improvisation and folk/jazz styles.
