Titled after one of Rumi's most known poems, Community of the Spirit (COS) seeks to fulfill deep, honest expression through the original compositions, the personal interpretations of the material, and the art of improvisation. Crossing jazz and classical boundaries, combining strings and flute with vocalist and rhythm section, and setting new and original music to poetry, Community of the Spirit is an alternative choice amongst a mainstream music scene.
COS has performed at venues such as the 5C Cafe, Puppets Jazz Bar, and The Shrine, and its members have won awards such as the Zurich Jazz Orchestra Composer Competition and Honorable Mention in the ASCAP Young Jazz Composer Awards....
