Jenny Game-Lopata : Associate Artist

Improvisation lies at the heart of my compositions, from inception to performance. I like to make sure musicians have the freedom to put that extra bit of themselves into the music. Intercultural music, blending styles or genres is another of my passions...especially middle eastern genres.
