Bay Chamber Music

March 10, 2021

Wonderful opportunity

Every years, Bay Chamber presents a free matinee for over 1,000 students from around the state. Due to the pandemic, they’re not able to offer a live performance, but instead they are excited to offer a free virtual program by Warp Trio called Black Voices that will be accessible from a private link on Bay Chamber’s YouTube channel.


Black Voices, features the music and writings of musicians, poets and authors from the African Diaspora—illuminating the breadth of influence from artists of color on our contemporary culture and landscape. The 45-minute program showcases a variety of genres from hip hop and classical to spoken word and jazz. Presented in conjunction with the award winning emcee LiKWuiD, the program includes poetry by Langston Hughes, Ntozake Shange, Maya Angelou paired with music by Duke Ellington, William Grant Still, Harry Burleigh, and original compositions from Warp Trio.


This program is recommended for high school audiences but may be suitable for younger audiences at the teacher’s discretion.


The program will be available through Bay Chamber Concerts & Music School’s YouTube channel and can be viewed at any time between March 1- April 16, 2021. To sign up, please email Monica Kelly at


Learn about Warp Trio who are described as “A talented group that exemplifies the genre-obliterating direction of contemporary classical music (Columbia Free Times)”, Warp Trio is an internationally touring cross-genre chamber music experience. Reflecting the combination of Juilliard trained members juxtaposed with members steeped in rock and jazz styles, the one of a kind trio (that even has a fourth member!) can be seen performing classical works in prestigious halls on the same tour where they headline a standing room only show at a rock venue. In addition to their electrifying public performances, they have gained a reputation for their innovative educational workshops with students from grade school through university level.
