Formers and Performers:Barry Kornhauser - A Jazz Cello Concert

Barry will be performing original jazz informed compositions, improvisations and songs. The band will be comprised of Barry Kornhauser (cello), Michel Gentile (flute), Ilusha Tsinadze (guitar), John Mettam (drums), and a guest vocalist.
