“Songs and Stories,” a cross-genre performance series, will be launched by the Southampton Cultural Center on Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m. The ongoing initiative will pair writers, poets, musicians, dancers, visual artists, and other creative individuals in free performances presented simultaneously at different venues in Southampton.
Inspired by the art exhibition “Tactility,” Iktus Percussion will perform two pieces at the cultural center. Sebastian Noelle Jazz will explore chance and the unconscious at Arthur T. Kalaher Fine Art.
Martha Cargo, a flutist, and Jonah Rosenberg, a pianist and saxophonist, will perform a program inspired by the work of Jonathan Cramer at Southampton Arts Center. Chrysalis Gallery will host Kelley Morrell on clarinet and Nisreen Nor on bassoon.
Each ensemble will perform 20-minute sets every half hour. Visitors will be able to enjoy the mini-concerts on their own or join an organized tour beginning at the Chrysalis Gallery at 3 p.m. A reception from 5 to 6 at the cultural center will conclude the event.
