Kettle Corn New Music Satisfies Audience’s Sweet Tooth

kettle-corn-new-music-logoOn Saturday, June 14, 2014, I made the journey over to The DiMenna Center for Classical Music to hear Kettle Corn New Music’s concert featuring the piano trio Typical Music. Typical Music—consisting of Todd Reynolds (violin), Ashley Bathgate (cello), and Vicky Chow (piano)—played a wonderful and diverse program featuring the music of co-founder of Kettle Corn New Music Alex Weiser as well as music by Andy Akiho, Emily Cooley, David Lang, Donnacha Dennehy, and Todd Reynolds. Under the influence of Brooklyn Brewery beer and multiple bags of Kettle Corn NYC kettle corn (both offered at no expense to audience members), I relaxed in my chair and prepared myself for a chill and exciting concert experience.
