UnityGroup was formed by Rob Weinberger in 1997 based on world and african music he performed in NYC some years earlier. Currently featuring Harris Thor, Rob Lipari, and Chris Carlsen, accomplished creative players in the region, UnityGroup’s performances have been celebrated for dynamism and creativity. Rob and Harris incorporate exotic instruments such as African drums, steel pan, and didgeridoo into their compositions, together with sounds and styles suggestive of West Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia. The band has performed on television, radio, at countless school concerts, regional festivals, and jazz vespers based events, and has released several notable CDs.
This event is made possible with public funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and administered by The Earlville Opera House.
