Mimi Rabson's Strings Theory Trio: 2015-2016 concert season runs October thru April
Strings Theory Trio announces their 2015-2016 season of directed improvisation with music composed and performed by Mimi Rabson (five string violin), along with Helen Sherrah-Davies (five string violin) and Junko Fujiwara (cello).
Combining idiomatic flexibility, a deep wellspring of creativity, and world-class virtuosity, Mimi Rabson is one of the Boston area’s most valuable musical resources — and her current Strings Theory Trio brings together some of her most important influences and inspirations.
The Trio's season commences with the following concert:

RESQ has produced two recordings: “The Really Eclectic String Quartet” and “To the RESQ.” A founding member of the Klezmer Conservatory Band, Rabson worked with that organization for many years, touring as well as recording, composing, and acting as their musical director.
Other performance credits include: the premiere of “Fresh Faust” by Leroy Jenkins; the soundtrack for "Sensorium”, the award winning film by Karen Aqua; and appearances with Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, Meatloaf, Kristin Chenoweth, the Boston Gay Men's Choir, the Boston Camarata, the New England Ragtime Ensemble, the Klezmatics, Deborah Henson-Conant, the Pablo Ablanedo Octet, and XLCR. She has twice performed on “A Prairie Home Companion," and has appeared at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Wolf Trap, the Mann Center, the Place des Arts in Montreal and other international venues.
