  • Zinc Bar 82 West 3rd Street New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

The Sketchy Orkestra returns to the landmark ZINC Bar (82 W 3rd Street btwn Thompson & Sullivan) on December 30th, 2015, with a soulful evening in two sets: at 8:00 PM and 10:30 PM. This show is a thrilling tête-à-tête between the signature string ensemble and the trio. It is lead by internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Misha Piatigorsky.

The Sketchy Orkestra is pioneering the sound featuring a string section in progressive arrangements. In this unconventional approach, Piatigorsky is fusing orchestral writing and provocative urban beats to create a unique soundscape. The maverick partnership takes the audience on a rollercoaster ride through a juxtaposition of musical genres.

The evening will feature special guest appearances by vocalist extraordinaire Emily Braden, veteran saxophonist Dave Pietro, and NY trumpet star Tatum Greenblatt. The performance is followed by a late night jam session.
