Open Hearth Art Practice Presents: Across Breath, Voice, Silence

with Ellery Seifu Eskelin, MRO

December 15, 2023

Come join us for a performance of saxophone improvisation with Zen practitioner and sangha member Ellery Seifu Eskelin.

In Seifu’s words, “Improvised music is above all a process, always unfolding, always revealing. A process in which you have to fully participate as a performer or listener.”

Tickets are $10 per person in advance. All proceeds go directly to the artist. No one will be turned away or denied reservation for lack of funds. Registration will be limited to 30 people.

If you would like to make an additional donation, all proceeds will go directly to the artist. Thank you!
