Slow Down & Joy Ride with Us!
April 7-12

"An act of composition, a performance art piece, a philosophical statement, an exercise in extreme physicality, and a celebration of musical community! Composer, cornet player and bandleader Taylor Ho Bynum travels through Miami solely on bicycle--presenting solo concerts & playing with ensembles of area musicians, riding the message of alternate forms of creativity and alternative modes of transportation." - MDC Live Arts

“a provocateur in the guise of a consensus builder” (The New York Times)
