The Beast, Durham, NC’s resident hip hop and jazz quartet, has a really cool event coming up that sounds like a lot of fun. On Saturday January 19, 2013 The Beast will host an open rehearsal/community workshop with their 13-piece ensemble, The Beast + BIG BAND.
The Beast + BIG BAND will be recording their debut EP at Sound Pure Studios in Durham on January 26th, and during Saturday’s 1/19 event, you’ll have the opportunity to watch the group rehearse and work on their creative process. After the rehearsal there will be a Q&A session with Beast keyboardist Eric Hirsh (three-time winner of the ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composers Award).
Next month The Beast will be performing at Carnival in Panama, so Saturday will be y’all’s chance to catch the group before they leave the country.
