On the heels of our lavish festival in June, year-round concerts naturally follow by visiting performers, who will be acquainted or reacquainted with Hamilton audiences in a variety of settings, with an emphasis on committed improvisers from around the world in intimate settings.

Convergence is neither a jazz crew playing tunes nor a free-improv unit, slipping from one to another both within and between songs. While I am as addicted as anyone to energy music’s sugar high, Aldcroft’s formula leads to an ultimately more satisfying full-course banquet.
