Tilted Axes: Strawberry Solstice

A musical procession for the first day of summer and the full strawberry moon. It begins and ends at Richard Tucker Park, W 66th Street and Broadway. It contains a foray into the neighborhood with stops at places of interest. Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars is an ensemble created in 2011 and led by composer Patrick Grant. Now in its 12th season, the project takes on aspects of spectacle informed by the traditions of urban street bands, avant-garde theater, and ancient music. It takes music out into the world and seeks transformative situations meant to change the conversation. Tilted Axes perform exciting original compositions and a couple of unique arrangements of seasonal tunes, sonic structures comprised of burbling polyrhythms, and contemplative grooves for deep listeners. They will premiere a new piece, "Strawberry Solstice" and well as some surprises, it's a tilted tradition. @tiltedaxes #tiltedaxes
