SIMONA SMIRNOVA JAZZ QUARTET: BIRD LANGUAGE Simona Smirnova is a Lithuanian born jazz vocalist, composer and kanklės player based in New York City. She's a fixture in the New York live scene with her quartet when she's not touring the world, including Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Smirnova's genre-bending style has a unique theatrical flavor and uncanny vocal improvisation techniques. She deftly implements chamber music, Lithuanian zither – kanklės and folkloric chants into foundations of jazz and rock. Simona has released two albums and is currently working on her third album, which combines her latest original compositions. At Arts on Site Simona will be performing with her band Caili O'Doherty on piano, Maksim Perepelica on bass and Maxime Cholley on drums.


"Arts On Site began presenting artists in 2016 at 12 Saint Marks Place," said Chelsea Ainsworth, Executive Director of Arts On Site. "After 350 shows throughout the pandemic, AOS decided to build out a new performance space, Studio 3R, in May 2021 and began presenting artists in June. The space includes installing new black curtains, professional lighting, marley floor and risers for audience seating. We are so pleased to offer artists an intimate, professional, new performance space in NYC."
