New Music Circle has announced two free events next week featuring multi-instrumentalist Cooper-Moore.
Known variously in the creative music community as a composer, performer, instrument builder/designer, storyteller, teacher, mentor, and organizer, Cooper-Moore (pictured) will be in town to perform as pianist with bassist William Parker's In Order To Survive quintet in an NMC-sponsored concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 25 at Mad Art Gallery.
Before that, though, he'll be at Northside Workshop, 1306 St. Louis Ave, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 24 to present a free community workshop about instrument-building.
Then at 7:30 p.m. that same evening, Cooper-Moore will appear for a special hour-long solo performance at Foam, 3359 S. Jefferson.
Both events are free and open to the public, with no advance reservations needed.
