Alternative Harps in Concert
A unique blend of improvised and composed music will be showcased by harpists Brandee Younger, Mia Theodoratus and Riza Hequibal on August 27 at Theater 80 St. Marks. The chic trio announced today that they will demonstrate their talents fusing jazz, classical and world music.

These compelling harpists consist of Younger, a soulfully buoyant personality who has been featured in many avant garde settings through her work with jazz masters including Ravi Coltrane, Charlie Haden and Jack DeJohnette; Theodoratus, a veteran of the NYC underground jazz and rock scene is part of Dueling Harps with Ann Magnuson, her duo Adam & Mia and is part of the Hanuman Sextet; and Ms. Hequibal, an interpretive soloist known for her brilliant work with trumpeter Marcus Printup of the Jazz @ Lincoln Center Orchestra, is redefining the jazz standard and ballad on harp.

Each of these harpists can be heard on recordings (with other artists like Leona Naess, TV ON The Radio, Common, Ryan Leslie, Cassie)-now it is the time to hear them take over the stage for themselves.

The evening will feature each harpist demonstrating their adventurous take on the harp's potential in a broad musical setting. Their diverse backgrounds in jazz, hip hop, baroque pop, funk and classical styles will ensure the harp's continued presence in creative music for the 21st century.
