On Thursday, February 16 at 7 p.m., Kreft Arts will host The Timbre of Cedar, a band based in Metro-Detroit for a concert in the Black Box Theater.

The Timbre of Cedar is an alternative indie rock outfit based in the mitten of Michigan. With a variety of sounds ranging from a driving full band to hushed vocals and subtle piano tones, the group displays a versatility that keeps you guessing what’s next. Front woman, Marrissa Parham, has strong vocals that stand out beautifully over the clean-cut, refined sound of her band, and her words reveal a transparency of the soul and yearning for grace.

A community event

The Timbre of Cedar will perform in the Black Box Theater on Concordia University Ann Arbor’s campus at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 16. This concert is free and open to all faculty, staff, students, and members of the community. No reservations are required for seats in the Black Box.

About the band

Though its name evokes images of a land with towering trees, winding rivers, and vast lakes, The Timbre of Cedar is rooted in the urban forest of Metro Detroit. Cutting through the peripheral noise of sonic and existential monotony, the five-piece musical collective crafts a refreshing brand of anthemic indie-rock, inspired and instilled with a transparency of the soul and a yearning for grace.
