Allison Miller's Boom Tic Boom

A powerful, drummer-led jazz band

Featuring the new work In Our Veins: Rivers and Social Change, co-commissioned by Lake Placid Center for the Arts.

"In Our Veins: Rivers and Social Change," is a historical reimagining of social movements and rivers through music, dance and video. It focuses on five rivers and five associated historical narratives, (admittedly only a fraction of the many narratives). The project explores multimedia performance as a vital form of knowledge production through the poetic interpretation of historical events and their association with the geography, ecology and flow of specific rivers. The work hopes to present a rich multi-sensual experience for the audience, where music, movement and images coalesce to produce transformational ideas and feelings.

Her band, Boom Tic Boom, is a 2014 recipient of Chamber Music America’s “Presenter Consortium for Jazz Grant” and is proudly sponsored by Mid- Atlantic Arts Foundation.
