This micro-cast features Jazz duo Atla and Matt DeChamplain. Through a 10X10 presentation of Berkshire Jazz, the two will perform a collection of “10 Flavours of Jazz.” This melodic tour of “America’s music” takes place Saturday, February 25, at 8:00 p.m. at Flavours of Malaysia, 75 North Street, Pittsfield.

The story of their journey together, both musically and personally, is sweet to listen to, and, unsurprisingly, goes a long way toward explaining their remarkable ability to find sweet synthesis in song. Atla and Matt will be playing February 26

Limited seating, advance purchase strongly advised: $25 in advance ($30 at the door…if any still remain on the day of the event). Dinner available separately starting at 7:45pm, when the doors open for jazz.

Tom Coash’s full-length play, “Veils,” set in Cairo at the beginning of the Arab Spring, played at Barrington Stage in the fall of 2015. He says an experience from “Veils” inspired him to write the shorter work that appears in this year’s 10×10 Festival. He talked with us about both plays and what he has learned in writing them.
