Subhraag Singh, musician, composer, inventor, has performed as a saxophone player on stages from the Blue Note in NYC to the Centre Pompidou in Paris.  Spending time in India, he was eeply influenced by the microtonal scales and spectrum of pitch used in traditional Indian music.  This led him to the conclusion that pitch can be a free and dynamic element of musical expression, which drove him to develop new technologies to enable musicians to utilize “freedom of pitch” in their musical creations. His first creation, a technologically enabled acoustic wind instrument called the Infinitone — the “saxophone of the future”, won first prize at the 2017 Guthman New Musical Instrument Competition at Georgia Tech. Recently his Infinitone DMT, a groundbreaking plugin, enables all musicians to make micro-tuning an integral part of their creative process. Subhraag currently resides in Mönchhosbach, Germany (population: 70 humans, 20 horses) with his wife and 5-year-old son.

Apollonia Holzer is a Social Pedagogue, Life Consultant, Shiatsu  and CranioSacral Therapist, Dancer and Choreographer. For her: Healing and Arts happens in the moments when we become a channel of life.

Leo SchaffSongwriter, singer, actor, and teacher of Shakespeare at the 92nd St. Y.  His work has been seen and heard from Carnegie Hall to CBGB’s to the steps of the U.S. Capitol, where “Give Us Hope” — the signature song of the Young Peoples Chorus of New York, which he co-wrote — was performed at President Obama’s Inauguration in 2009.  For a live clip of the eclectic Leo, look here:


Norman Salant—is a NYC singer/songwriter whose songs are an attempt to put a face on the most moving elements of life.  They are songs for today, melodious, intricate, with lyrical wordplay and larger themes, poetic imagery and abstract impressions; above all honest.  Deceptively complex Norman’s songs reconstitute all the music he’s ever heard from the Beatles to Coltrane to Dylan to Philip Glass, into something fresh and new.  Pop songs, yes, but radically different than any particular genre might produce.
