Red Poppy Art House: Luminance Ensemble: A Celebration of Concert & Folk Traditions
December 6 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$15 – $20
Harpist Amelia Romano, joined by trumpeter Matt Ebisuzaki and bassist Tim Renner, presents an evening of original compositions and arrangements. With influences ranging from South American harp, symphonic brass, and odd-meter dance music, to minimalism, post-bebop, and spaghetti western soundtracks, this intrepid trio finds a song-line under San Francisco’s Mission District and tracks it to the Red Poppy.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Based in San Francisco, Luminance Ensemble’s music is an original blend of styles drawing from concert and folk traditions. It begins with the electric lever harp of Amelia Romano, whose playing is rhythmic and dynamic. Enthralled by an intricate muse, she covers low and high registers with contrapuntal panache. Romano is joined by Matt Ebisuzaki on C rotary-valve trumpet and Tim Renner on upright bass. Luminance Ensemble forges each composition from multiple perspectives, passing melodies and improvisation from player to player. This is spirited, creative music from collaborators who encourage each other to push their technical and expressive capabilities.
