The Westerlies (“prevailing winds from the West to the East”) are a New York based brass quartet comprised of four friends from Seattle, Washington: Riley Mulherkar and Zubin Hensler on trumpet, and Andy Clausen and Willem de Koch on trombone.

The Westerlies re-imagine the chamber music experience through boldly personal performance, recording, collaboration, education, and outreach. Since their inception in 2011, they have cultivated a new brass quartet repertoire featuring over 50 original compositions as well as adaptations of Ives, Ellington, Bartok, Ligeti, Stephen Foster and numerous traditionals. Their music exudes the warmth of their longstanding friendships, and reflects the broad interests of its members.

The Westerlies navigate a wide array of venues with the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band, and the charm of a family folk ensemble. The Westerlies have performed at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at University of Maryland, The Festival of New Trumpet Music, Juilliard in Aiken Festival, The Juilliard School, Music in the Mountains (Durango, CO), the Vancouver Jazz Festival, Constellation Chicago, the Seattle Art Museum and Earshot Jazz Festival. Active collaborators, they have worked with artists in a variety of disciplines, including Vieux Farke Toure, Dave Douglas, Bill Frisell, visual artist David Foarde, Choreographer Garth Johnson, and Juilliard Dance. Their debut album, Wish The Children Would Come On Home: The Music of Wayne Horvitz, was released on Songlines Recordings in May 2014, and was immediately met with praise.

Tickets: $10 advance/ $12 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Created by Nancy Harms and Arne Fogel with musical direction by Jeremy Siskind.

“Nightlife”, Duke Ellington once said, “is cut out of a very luxurious, royal blue bolt of velvet. It sparkles with jewels, and it sparkles in tingling and tinkling tones.” Vocalist Nancy Harms presents a stunning hour of the immortal Duke’s melodies. All songs specially selected to illustrate that “luxurious royal blue” quality.

In this show, Nancy lends her luxuriant touch to the interpretation of a number of Ellington anthems and rarities, specially selected by Nancy and arranged for this concert by brilliant pianist­/composer (and frequent Harms collaborator) Jeremy Siskind, who accompanies Nancy with his trio. “I Got It Bad And That Ain’t Good”, “Prelude To A Kiss”, “Rocks In My Bed”, and “Strange Feeling” are just a few of the songs to be presented by Nancy and company on this very special night.
