Presence is the crossroads where jazz, classical, and electronic music meet. It is a unique musical meditation on place, space, and the human condition. John Petrucelli’s latest compositional endeavor combines three different musical genres into one original performance featuring a jazz quintet, a string quartet, and electronics.
