About the Musicians:
Educated Little Monsters (5:30pm)
Through dance, poetry, and art, Educated Little Monsters (ELM) offers teens and youth an opportunity for self-expression in a safe supportive environment. Since 2013 ELM has been taking a unique and hands-on approach to arts education.
The Ashcan Orchestra (6:15pm)
Since 2007, Composer P. Spadine, has been using a collection of toy, re-appropriated, and homemade instruments, to create unique performance ensembles. On stages and basements, indoors and out, Ashcan has been presenting new music and rituals in celebration and emulation of the physics and mathematics that bind the known universe.
