On Friday, May 27th Echoes, a contemporary jazz ensemble from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, returns to the main dining room at Alvin & Friends. Echoes was here last year on their summer tour of the East Coast; formed in January 2014 in Oberlin Conservatory’s jazz department, over the past two years they have developed a cohesive and unique band sound through both original compositions and refreshing interpretations of jazz standards.
They began the summer of 2015 by completing a two-week residency at the renowned Avaloch Farm Music Institute in New Hampshire, an accomplishment made more significant by the fact that they were the youngest group of musicians ever selected to participate in the residency. Following the residency, they solidified this new music over a month-long tour down the east coast and through the Midwest, which included stops in Boston, New York City, New Rochelle, Philadelphia, D.C., Cleveland, and Chicago. In January 2016, Echoes was selected by the Oberlin Conservatory to represent the school on a three-week tour of Jordan. The tour was sponsored by the U.S. Embassy, and included performances throughout the country. While in Jordan, the group conducted multiple educational outreach concerts and workshops in schools and universities, and had the pleasure of performing with members of the Jordanian National Orchestra. Echoes continues to perform around Oberlin and the greater Cleveland area, and plans to tour the U.S. and travel to Europe in summer 2016.
No cover charge, but tables in the main dining room are reserved for those ordering a meal and there is a two-drink minimum at the bar.
