Nicole Brancato & Greg Hammontree: Improvisation & Classical Music

Nicole Brancato, piano

Greg Hammontree, trumpet

Greg Hammontree is a dynamic New York multi-instrumentalist and composer, and a member of Queen’s Cartoonists, a multi-media jazz sextet with synchronized cartoons. His credits include the Bluenote, Radio City Music Hall, Netflix, CBS, HBO, RAI, PBS, and ABC.

Nicole Brancato makes music to unlock wonder. Fascinated with contemporary expressions of our shared human experience, the New York-based pianist merges curation, composition, and performance in collaborations across the arts. Described as “brilliant” and an “immense talent” (New York Magazine and Connect Savannah), Nicole is “redefining the very notion of classical music” (Atención San Miguel). Her credits range from the Guggenheim Museum, RAI Italia (television network Italy), the Banff Centre, Lincoln Center, HBO, and NPR. As an educator, Nicole’s extensive experience includes the Gesellschaftshaus Magdeburg, Germany and the Sphinx Organization. She is an awardee of National Sawdust’s Hildegard Competition (2022 finalist) and is a member of Seven Hills Chamber Music Festival as director and artist in residence.
