Blend of Indie, Jazz, Classica


Join MYS for its next Interconnected Concert, MIGRANTS, featuring special guest Joe Kye, violinist- looper, vocalist, composer, producer extraordinaire! Born in Korea and raised in Seattle, Joe draws upon his migrant upbringing to blend indie-rock, jazz, classical, and pop, creating a unique sound that "leaves everyone in awe." (Sac News and Review)

Following an energetic opening set from the MYS Jazz Band (a big-band style group under the direction of Greg McKelvey), Joe will take the stage alongside the MYSfits string ensemble and the MYS Jazz Ensemble. The strings and jazz ensemble will perform original music by Joe, in various instrumental combinations, from his latest CD, "Migrants." Released in 2018 and featured on BBC World News, PRI's The World, and LA's Music Friday Live, "Migrants" has been praised as "lovely and nimble" and "delightfully unique." Interspersed with Joe's songs, the MYSfits will perform movements of Grieg's neoclassic Holberg Suite, and the Jazz Ensemble will perform tunes by Charlie Parker ("Bird") in a nod to the MYS Symphony Orchestra's upcoming Downtown Series Concert featuring music and staging all to do with birds... After all, birds are the original migrants

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
