November 10 Anat Cohen Concert Sold Out Second Performance Added for November 9

SEATTLE, WA –The previously announced Anat Cohen concert for November 10 has sold out. Cornish Presents and Earshot Jazz have added a second performance on November 9 with the Israeli clarinetist. Conversant with modern and traditional jazz, classical music, Brazilian choro, and Argentine tango, Cohen has established herself as a leading voice in jazz moving forward. In addition to the two concerts, Cohen will be offering a free master class on November 10, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at PONCHO at Cornish College of the Arts’ Kerry Hall, 710 East Roy Street.

Other previously announced Cornish Presents concerts for November include Gamelan Pacifica, November 1; Art Lande Quartet, November 6; and Jay Clayton in and out, November 8. All of these performances will take place at PONCHO at Cornish College of the Arts’ Kerry Hall, 710 East Roy Street.

The Fall 2015 Cornish Presents series will end with the local premiere of the Peace Symphony by Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky, on Dec. 4. In this moving examination of the tragedy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the audience will experience a sound and visual portrait of one of the defining moments of the 20th century. Commissioned by UN Peace Boat in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombing, Miller interacted with eight Hibakusha (bombing survivors) to create the Peace Symphony, combining their stories with historical footage, music, and the DJ Spooky App.

Ticket prices vary by event, ranging from $16 to $34 for general admission to $5 to $15 for students or seniors. For additional information or to purchase tickets, visit www.cornish.edu/presents.
