Eisemann Center Presents Todd Mosby New Horizons Ensemble on Thursday, January 23, in the Bank of America Theatre. Mosby's 'New Horizons Ensemble' is a genre-defying American fusion of folk, jazz and North Indian music. This super group includes Grammy-nominated performers delivering an exciting evening of acoustic instrumental mixed with James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. With virtuosic flair, this world-class five- member touring ensemble has performed from New York City to San Francisco. Mosby tours performing arts centers nationally with Todd Mosby New Horizons Ensemble, Jazz India, Will Ackerman Four Guitars and Todd Mosby Acoustic Guitar. Mosby enjoys offering educational outreach and sharing acquired musical insights and philosophies with others.

Mosby said, "My musical journey began in Saint Louis as a child of the 70's folk rock scene which eventually led to concerts across America's finest Performing Arts Centers. My musical DNA springs from roots in Classical North Indian, Traditional Jazz, Folk Rock and Bluegrass. Combing the musical philosophies and traditions found in each of these disciplines has led to the evolution of a new hybrid sitar/guitar (Imrat Guitar) along with a highly melodic form of composition which has garnered five Global music awards and numerous nominations. My passion is sharing music with excellent musicians and transporting audiences with concerts which engage at all levels. I will be performing music from my new CD Open Waters which is slated to be one of the year's finest entries in Contemporary Instrumental music for 2019."

A free Jazz Master Class will be offered on Thursday, February 23@ Bank of America Hall.
