B'shnorkestra: new work for strings, horns & drums


The B'shnorkestra is a new large ensemble project featuring the work of Seattle based composer Samantha Boshnack. We'll premier eight new works in two concerts September 22 and 24 at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center (all ages).

Bold and undulating, there is a majestic grandness to Boshnack's compositions, regardless of the project featured. In the B'shnorkestra. strings and percussion orchestrate the soaring melodic and tightly punctuated horn lines she’s celebrated for, taking this new work to a cinematically inspired place.

Comprised of 14 instrumentalists, the B’shnorkestra brings together musicians from many different Seattle music communities including: jazz (free, modern, straight-ahead), rock, avant-garde, salsa, pop, klezmer, Balkan, neo-soul/hip-hop, reggae, and classical. The music draws from and blends these genres into a language all its own, showcasing the wealth and variety of talents found in the B’shnorkestra players.
