Local musician runs concert series aimed at bringing diverse people and creative genres together

Community News: Community Resilience.

Erica Corbo hosts a monthly concert series called Warp Factor 9 (WF9) that has been running every third Thursday since March 2019 and pivoted to live-streaming on Facebook during the pandemic. The series gives Corbo and fellow musicians a place to play and shows to watch during a strenuous time, and creates a much-needed home for local avant-garde and jazz acts, solo pianists, and piano-focused ensembles. “With this series, I hope to bring all people and creative genres together, and to soften the divide between the avant-garde and other types of music,” Corbo writes. “I also like to showcase new compositions, and groups with unusual instrumentation.” Viewers and players can support through online donations on PayPal, Venmo, and CashApp.
