TORCH is a Seattle-based contemporary chamber ensemble [trumpet, clarinet, vibes, and bass] whose original compositions play with heady intellects and groove-craving souls. TORCH is releasing their first full-length album that features the varied and vibrant sounds of their composer collective. As an advocate for collaboration, TORCH works with visual artists, dancers, and creatives of all types to inspire socially conscious art.
Join TORCH and friends Juliet McMains (Choreographer), Scott Kolbo (Visual Artist), and the UW Department of Dance at the Alhadeff Studio Theater at Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center for a celebration of the self-titled album and the launch of TORCH as a program of Common Tone Arts, a non-profit organization committed to inspiring positive change for our diverse world through arts education and music.
