Last Day To RSVP To 18th Street Arts Center’s Free Concert This Friday:

Today is the last day to RSVP to the 18th Street Arts Center’s performance of internationally recognized saxophonist, composer and sound conceptualist, Matana Roberts in concert at the Edye Second Space at the Broad Stage in the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center this Friday, Feb. 17 at 8 p.m.

Roberts and her dynamic ensemble will premiere her latest original works in an intimate performance.

More than a jazz musician, Roberts is an artist who translates images, memories and personal experiences into avant-garde compositions.

Inspired by her own African American genealogy and oral traditions, as well as the roots and history of the New Orleans jazz scene, Roberts’ pieces are often musical journeys through time and space.

By using improvisational sound techniques and visual elements, Roberts gives her audience an electric, multi-sensory experience.

Chicago-born and New York-based, Roberts has performed across the U.S., Europe, and Canada and has recorded five solo albums and numerous collaborative projects.

Investigating various forms of performance, she has created alongside visionary experimentalists in the disciplines of dance, poetry, visual art and theater. Roberts is the first recipient of the 18th Street Arts Center’s Make-Jazz Residency funded by the Herb Alpert Foundation.

The Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center is located at 1310 11th St., Santa Monica, CA 90401.

While free and open to the public, this event has limited seating.

Reservations required by February 14, 2012. RSVP to rsvp@18thstreet.org
