Celebrating their new CD release, The Avian Orchestra, a seven-piece chamber band, once again returns to New York City to rip through a program of rock-and-roll inspired music. They’ve been polishing up with performances in the region over the last month and are ready to give you a great show on Wednesday night at The Cell. The CD will be available for purchase at the low price of $10 and the composers will be around to sign and customize your copy. Even better, hang around after the concert for a WINE AND SWEETS RECEPTION while you chat with the musicians and composers!

The program, a modern mash-up of high and low culture, includes:
• Fantastic Music for a Fabulous Time – Peter Flint’s full-on homage to the musical excess.
• I Wish They All Could Be – Conrad Cummings’ Beach Boys piano fantasy.
• Cable Ready – Michael Gandolfi’s virtuosic trio, quoting Bach, Brahms, and the blue
• Smoke n’ Wid – Richard Belcastro’s slamming quartet for electric guitar and chamber rock trio.
• The Vinyl Six – Jonathan Newman’s tribute to the theme and variations power ballad.
• Swells – David Laganella’s full deconstruction of California surf guitar music

as well as some other musical surprises.
