Please join us at Moto Spirits, Bushwick distillery for an evening with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra with their special guest, cellist Ken Kubota and Empire Wild.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Concert will begin at 7pm.
Empire Wild is a genre-bending, crossover trio featuring Ken Kubota, Holly Bean, and Mitch Lyon. Ken and Mitch bring all the cello has to offer - bowed, plucked, chopped and more. Holly can be found singing and pushing the piano into any style the group sets their mind on.
The three musicians channel their love for musical exploration into the trio - fusing the sounds of pop, folk, jazz and more into their songwriting and composition. Their debut EP ‘Paper Seasons’ features all original songs, highlighting the trio’s unique sound and instrumentation. Based in NYC, Empire Wild was selected as an Ambassador Prize winner in the 2020 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition.
