Studio 2

At the forefront of the classical and jazz worlds respectively, Mariel Roberts (cello) and Nate Wooley (trumpet) each performed solo sets, along with a duo improvisation. Both artists have quickly developed international reputations: Wooley for his iconoclastic, expectation-defying playing, and Roberts for a fearless technical prowess. Roberts is a dedicated interpreter and performer of contemporary music. She holds degrees from the Eastman School and the Manhattan School of Music, where she specialized in contemporary performance practice. She has appeared as a soloist and with ensembles such as Signal, Wet Ink, Dal Niente, S.E.M., the Nouveau Classical Project, and the Wordless Music Orchestra. Wooley is one of the most in-demand trumpet players in the burgeoning Brooklyn jazz, improv, noise, and new music scenes. He has performed with John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Fred Frith, Peter Evans, and Mary Halvorson.
