Description

Mysterious Travelers 4: Further Investigations - a collaboration between The Free Library of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Jazz Project. Back by overwhelming popular demand! FREE concerts on Monday nights from September 2017 through May 2018; audiences will hear from veteran, as well as up-and-coming musicians who are shaping the future sounds of Philadelphia with a sharp ear to the legacies of our past. This season our artists will continue to celebrate the massive and amazing collections of the Free Library by exploring them as a source of inspiration for the creation of new musical works.

Dan Nosheny has been performing across a wide array of genres and styles for over two decades. A highly sought multi-instrumentalist in the Philadelphia music scene, he has been featured on accordion and baritone with the Balkan brass band the West Philadelphia Orchestra, on tuba with Ensemble Anomaly, and on trombone/tuba/accordion with Cuban master percussionist, Francois Zayas. His projects blend traditional jazz styles with avant-garde and pop culture elements in whimsical, dreamlike, and downright funky combos. Dan has performed with Christian McBride, McCoy Tyner, and Laurie Anderson, and has been a featured performer with the Violent Femmes since 1999.

Tuba, Euphonium, Sousaphonist and composer, Dan Nosheny will be our guest artist in the Mysterious Traveler Concert Series. In his concert, Dan Nosheny will utilize Russian composer, Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky’s, classic piano suite, "Pictures At An Exhibition" as a vehicle to examine the architecture, holdings and mystique of the 100+ year old, Central Branch of the Free Library Of Philadelphia itself.

All events in this series are FREE.
