Edgar Meyer is one of the most versatile and accomplished bassists in the world today. We will hear a recent Harriman-Jewell Series Digital Experience performance that includes original compositions by Edgar, as well as music by Bach, Antonio Carlos Jobim and some traditional Irish jigs. The program will conclude with an insightful and humorous question and answer session with Edgar.
