KINETIC

 

Kinetic performs songs immersed in the tropical sounds and rhythms of West Africa. The music and imagery was first imagined in Ghana, where composer Joseph Sheehan spent six months intensively studying Ghanaian music, dance, and culture. This experience, blended with a passion for contemporary jazz, inspires songs with distinctive colors and shapes. The ensemble brings together versatile, open-minded musicians who believe in breaking down barriers between traditional music genres, audiences, and concert spaces.

 

The group’s debut ensemble, World of Wonder, was released in 2014 to critical acclaim. Kinetic has performed at music festivals, art museums, jazz clubs, and music venues in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and New York City. Its members are also passionate music educators, therapists, and arts leaders.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KASSIA ENSEMBLE

 

Kassia Ensemble is a chamber group in the city of Pittsburgh. Comprised exclusively of women, its members also hold positions in the Pittsburgh Opera and Ballet orchestras, the West Virginia Symphony, the Wheeling Symphony, and the Canton Symphony Orchestras. The members of the Kassia Ensemble came together in an effort to supersede the gender barrier that is prevalent in classical music. The decision was made to form an all-female ensemble in efforts to create an empowering environment of mutual respect and support which frees women to collaborate and express themselves at the highest levels of musicianship, artistry, and performance. The Kassia Ensemble promotes female entrepreneurship and leadership in the arts, while simultaneously embracing the performers’ unique experiences as women that deepen and expand their own creative output. As a result of their own life experiences, the members of the Kassia Ensemble feel a sense of responsibility to use their talents to promote social justice and engage in charitable projects for the benefit of struggling women. Kassia was a Byzantine abbess, poet, composer, and hymnographer, whose talent and character serve as inspiration for the ensemble.
