Jeff Hoyer Memorial Concert
Roulette at Location One/New York, NY
Wednesday, March 12

That's Jeff on the left doing what he did so well, stirring and thickening the broth in an ensemble setting. Jeff died suddenly in December of 2006. We have reconvened nHarmonic Brass (an ensemble outgrowth of the Sound Vision Orchestra) a brass choir that Jeff and I developed and co-led in 2004-05.
nharmonic Brass is Joseph Daley/tuba & music director; Stephen Haynes, Nate Wooley, Stanton Davis/trumpets; Bob Hovey, Art Baron, Aaron Johnson/trombones; Warren Smith/drums and percussion. We will perform two compositions by Jeff written expressly for the group: X Chromophono Y and Confluence, Duplicity and Triple Trickery.

Organization of the concert is being spearheaded by Mark Hennen and is being presented by the Sound Vision Orchestra and Roulette. Mark will perform, as will others, and we will all reflect on the memory and living spirit of our dear friend, Jeff Hoyer.
