Flutist and composer Elsa Nilsson is throwing a benefit concert for Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue. 75% of the proceeds will go straight to helping this amazing organization rescue amazing dogs from high kill shelters in the rural south. Combining the rich heritage of her Swedish homeland with jazz and musical influences from around the world, Nilsson and her quartet will showcase songs from the exciting new album “Already There Yet” released in September as well as some new music.
