New York, NY-April 7, 2011 – Composers Concordance and Bruka Band will join forces for an evening to explore a variety of angles to the art of performing today. The music traditions include classical, world, jazz, and hip-hop, the cultures of the Balkans, South and North America, interweaving art forms of music, literature, dance, visual projections and photography.

Composers Concordance and Bruka Band are two energetic, daring and diverse collectives of new music composers, performers and new art advocates. For CBCB, they gather an exciting array of New York based musicians and artists including: Bruka Band’s Milica Paranosic, Margaret Lancaster, Jonathan Zalben, Rubens Salles, Richard Manoia, and Peter Christian Hall; and Composers Concordance’s Dan Cooper, Gene Pritsker, Dan Barrett, and Lynn Bechtold.

CBCB will be hosted by the recently re-branded Gallery MC in midtown New York, known for

their eclectic programming.

Bruka Band is a multimedia group founded by Serbian born composer & performing artist Milica Paranosic. Bruka Band advocates an interdisciplinary and multicultural approach. Bruka Band appears in various sizes, ranging from a one-woman solo performance to a 10-piece performance troupe.

Composers Concordance is a presenting organization for contemporary music primarily by living American composers striving to present music in innovative ways with a thematic emphasis. Directors Gene Pritsker and Dan Cooper curate the programs and lead the Composers Concordance Ensemble, now in residence at William Paterson University. Composers Concordance Records is their new record label, distributed by Naxos.

Milica Paranosic, CBCB producer, says, “Extremely low admission, the diversity of the composers and performers, the informal gallery setting, the part art – part party format, are all intended to draw attention and welcome larger audiences.”

CBCB performs one night only, May 10, 2011. CBCB starts at 8 pm. Running time for the concert is approximately 90 minutes. Composers Concordance and Bruka Band each perform for approximately 45 minutes. A casual reception follows including a birthday toast to the Milica Paranosic of Bruka Band. Catering will be provided by by Kafana, an East Village Serbian Restaurant. Tickets are available at the door. To guarantee admission, RSVP to info@milicaparanosic.com.
