This Friday night BloomBars hosts an eclectic evening of classical, experimental, improv and spoken word to benefit the Duke Ellington School of the Arts theater program. The eve will feature experimental music from Boat Burning, from Chapel Hill but now based in DC, and The Columbia Players, a DC-based classical string quartet that plays everything from Beethoven to Jimi Hendrix. Plus, monologues by local actor Sam Sherman. "The evening will explore possible dialogues at multiple levels: among musical instruments, and between instruments and the human voice."
