      "This is Our Environment" Album Screening & Discussion

      In lieu of an in person tour this year of "This is Our Environment," we are holding a two-part virtual event. This first part will an online screening of the album, "This is Our Environment," to give you the opportunity to hear the full album before the release in early 2021. Throughout the screening, my fellow sextet members will join me as we talk about this project, how it came to be, who we are, and whatever else you want to know.

      This screening will take place on Facebook Live on August 19th at 7pm EST. The video will be shared on my Facebook page (Joseph Herbst Music) as well as in the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/279877399959035/

      The second part will be a virtual concert later this year featuring new music for this band. More info will be shared at and after the screening!
