Praised for her rhythmic precision and dynamic range, harpist Dr. Ashley Jackson brings her latest project Electric Lady to 1 Rivington. Centered around her collaborations with New York-based composer Danielle Eva Schwob, a “notable cross-genre composer” (The New Yorker) and musical polymath with “deep roots in rock music” (The New York Times), it is a celebration of contemporary solo and chamber works written by female composers, whose works form the heart of this engaging program.
