    Patrons are encouraged to bring a blanket and lawn chairs to spread out and enjoy the opening sets outside before moving into the theater for the headliner performance. Attendees will be able to purchase local food truck fare, as well as beverages provided by the venue on site. Events will go on, rain or shine.

    Hailing from Azerbaijan, the New York-based Amina Figarova is an internationally influenced—and recognized—composer, pianist, and bandleader. Those three roles come to the forefront in Figarova’s sextets, bands with a remarkable chemistry that brings her detailed arrangements to life. Every member of the group stands out as a first-rate individual, but their dedication to Figarova’s eclectic and powerful compositions gives this group its depth of feeling and elite status
