Thank you to those who Joined us as we welcome these great jazz artists to South Bend, during their midwest tour.
"Deconunisms plays improvised music that is lyrical, melodic, dramatic, and dynamic. It is music firmly rooted in jazz, but not bound to it. They are committed to instant communication with each other and the audience."
