Dr. Alex Kelly is a San Francisco-based cellist, composer, and educator. He composes and performs with major symphony orchestras, chamber orchestras, new music ensembles, string quartets, cello quartets, big bands, jazz combos, rock bands, world music ensembles, theater companies, radio productions, ballet companies, modern dance companies, and circus troupes.
Praised by the New York Times for his “outrageous fiddling,” violinist Matthew Szemela crosses genres with ease. He has performed in venues as diverse as Carnegie Hall and the Montreux Jazz Festival, and recorded and shared the stage with artists ranging from Jay-Z and Sting to Savion Glover and Placido Domingo.
San Francisco recording artist/producer/drummer PC Muñoz‘s projects are stylistically broad and deep, revealing a sonic explorer equally at home with contemporary classical, funk, hip-hop, folk, poetry, pure improv, art installations, and modern dance productions.
