Chris Grymes Open G Series

Mark Dover and Jeremy Ajani Jordan as Port Mande

6pm doors • 7pm show


Adventurous clarinettist and new music aficionado Chris Grymes brings his Open G podcast and performance series to National Sawdust in a continuing exploration of the new avenues that digital technologies are opening up for creating and sharing high-caliber music. This installment will feature genre-hopping polystylic chamber duo Port Mande.

Comprising clarinetist Mark Dover (of Imani Winds) and pianist/producer Jeremy Jordan, Port Mande’s mission is to bring all cultures and people together by embracing music of every genre. Dover and Jordan have extensive experience in classical, jazz, hip hop, gospel, pop, and more, and have collectively worked with everyone from Yo Yo Ma and Anthony McGill to The Temptations and Vulfpeck. Endlessly versatile and virtuosic, their performance is not one to be missed.
