As a multi-faceted artist, educator and activist, Fred Ho has pioneered works for dance, theater, and multimedia, interweaving tradition with novelty and free form Jazz. The Brooklyn-based saxophonist and composer joins David Garland to share his music and talk about his many multicultural pursuits — which include leading the Monkey Orchestra, the Afro Asian Music Ensemble, and the production company Big Red Media Inc.
Fred Ho premieres his Bari Sax Concerto "When the Real Dragons Fly!" at Zankel Hall with the American Composers Orchestra on November 14th.
