WILD GARDEN CHAMBER ENSEMBLE
The Wild Garden Chamber Ensemble is a new composer-led group consisting of some of Boston’s most adventurous and experienced chamber musicians and improvisers. The ensemble represents a new paradigm for a twenty-first century brand of chamber music that transcends traditional boundaries in its incorporation of composition, improvisation, poetry and visual art. The core instrumentation of the group is: flute, violin, cello, piano, bass, and percussion. Members also double on alto flute, bass clarinet, oboe, and english horn.

This group’s interdisciplinary approach makes them ideal for performances at art museums, galleries and concert venues. The ensemble’s founder and director Linda J. Chase is available for pre-concert lectures and workshops in interdisciplinary arts.

ANOTHER REALM
A quintet of creative musicians well-known in the Boston area, "Another Realm" performs original interpretations of jazz, folk, and world music. The band features flutist/bass clarinetist Linda Jaye Chase, multi-instrumentalist Hankus Netsky, vocalist/mandolinist Sarah Jarosz, bassist Chris Rathbun, and world-percussionist Jerry Leake. Musical sources are drawn from tango, Mexican romantic, middle-eastern rhythms, and Italian film.

BRANCHES - KLEZMER & BEYOND
Branches is a new ensemble that uses Jewish musical traditions as a point of departure for creative exploration. Founded by klezmer revivalist Hankus Netsky, the group also features actress/singer Jessica Kate Meyer, flutist/composer Linda Jaye Chase, cellist/bassist Andy Blickderfer, and violinist Yaeko Miranda Elmaleh. "Branches" performs repertoire drawn from klezmer, Hassidic, Yiddish Theater and cantorial traditions along with new compositions and improvisations based on Yiddish poetry and traditional music gathered from local sources.
