October 27, 2018 will mark the first performance of Altruit in a public setting. It is with great honor that we bring this project of ambient synthesis / musical exploration to the OAC, and hope to make these occurrences repeat over time going into the future.

Members include: Steve Ohnstad – Multi-Instrumentalist, Karly Ohnstad – Multi-Instrumentalist, Steven Schmidt – Multi-Instrumentalist. Jason Probst – Percussionist and Multi-Instrumentalist. We have played music as a group for many years and have decided to start sharing some of the music created in private with those in attendance.

Our vision for the evening will consist of multiple sessions and exploration within a musical theme (synthesis) - and may become chaotic, sweet, etc. – as anything can occur due to the improvisational manner of the performance.

Being a free concert means Altruit will not expect financial compensation – but would like to encourage anyone who wants to donate to the OAC to do so.

Thank you for your time, and we hope to see you there.
