 Sunday, March 4 at 12:00 p.m. featuring Whoopknox!

St. Michael's church--music in the woods-whoopknox


Whoopknox is a Detroit-based new music ensemble co-founded by Jocelyn Zelasko, voice, and Thom Monks, percussion. 

Jocelyn and Thom first met at New Music Detroit’s Strange Beautiful Music Festival in Detroit in 2015. When they met again at New Music Gathering in Bowling Green in 2017, they knew they needed to join forces! Being two Detroiters who love new music and the city, they made it their mission to perform music that is real – a true collaboration and conversation of sound. Whoopknox’s debut program at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church is full of edgy music – hard knocks and stunningly beautiful, just like Detroit.

Come join us on March 4th at 12:00 p.m.!
