No cover. $10 food/drink minimum.
30 Lafayette Avenue . Brooklyn, NY

Still in his early 30's, composer, clarinetist, and conductor Bermel has
been hailed by colleagues and critics for his versatility, creativity, and
theatricality as a composer of chamber, symphonic, dance, theatre, and pop
works. A multi faceted musician who freely approaches any number of genres
and disciplines, Bermel utilizes a
hands-on approach with the music and cultures of the world and has been the
recipient of numerous awards, among them the 2001 Rome Prize, Guggenheim,
and Fullbright Fellowships and several ASCAP Awards. His show at the BAMcafé
promises to be as expansive as his resume. Joining Bermel will be his
Brooklyn-based band Peace by Piece, Dutch electric-guitarist Wiek Hijmans,
and the FLUX String Quartet.
