For just three performances (April 6th, 13th and 20th) Nocturne is delighted to host Dawn Clement in an intimate trio format with Seth Lewis (bass) and Dru Heller (drums). Dawn will explore the intersection of improvisation and contemporary pop, creating an aural landscape that is fluid, dreamlike, deeply engaging (and fun).
Of the series Dawn says: “We are so excited to bring our music to this beautiful venue and we hope you’ll consider joining us for one of these special nights. Our joy will be palpable!”
