“Modern jazz icon in the making.” — All About Jazz
Described by critics as a charismatic and rhythmically propulsive drummer with melodic sensibility, Allison Miller engages her deep roots in jazz improvisation as a way to explore all music. The critically acclaimed percussionist and Yamaha clinician will be joined by her stellar band, Boom Tic Boom, for the Richmond premiere of her new Modlin Center for the Arts co-commissioned work, In Our Veins: Rivers and Social Change.
Rivers are the lifeline of America. In Our Veins: Rivers and Social Change is a multimedia suite for chamber jazz ensemble and tap dancer centered around five American rivers (Susquehanna, Delaware, James, Hudson, Schuylkill) and the social and environmental changes they inspired.
