Tracy Silverman and Roy “Futureman” Wooten – Concerto for Two

webslide

Tickets on sale September 18th!
$25 – non members and $20 – members

Tracy Silverman’s groundbreaking work with the 6-string electric violin synthesizes his eclectic background in classical, rock, jazz and world music into a genre-bending performance of stylistic breadth and emotional depth.  Equally eclectic is his longtime musical partner, renowned composer, innovator and 5x Grammy-winning percussionist Roy “Futureman” Wooten (of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones). Together they present arrangements of electric violin concertos written for Silverman by John Adams, Terry Riley, Kenji Bunch, Nico Muhly, and Silverman himself, as well as original compositions and a few “derangements” of Hendrix, Stevie Wonder, Beethoven, and Bach.

Silverman “”I refer to what I do as “21st century violin playing”, not just because it’s electric and I use a lot of electronics in my music, but mostly because of the style I play which is very influenced by all the music that surrounds us in our current culture—rock and roll, jazz, hip hop, film music, video game music and music from all over the world. I think it’s vital for the violin to be culturally relevant and to reflect the music of our time and place, or it may become a museum instrument that plays only the music of the past.”

The Boys Next Door was written in the early 1980s by Tom Griffin. This play is a two act comedy drama about four intellectually disabled men who live together in small group home apartment in Boston. It takes place over roughly a two-month period and consists of brief vignettes about their lives. The play provides a humorous commentary on the men’s lives, taking a surprising turn as Barry’s father comes to visit and as Jack (their caretaker) accepts a new job.

 Holiday Jam with the Hegg Brothers

December 15, 2015 at 7:30 pm

This musical showcase features the talents of a multi-piece band playing holiday classics as well as contemporary new arrangements in the signature lush and rhythmic horn band sound of Jeremy and Jon Hegg. Filling out the group are the region’s finest and most exciting musicians. As we all hear most of our favorite holiday season songs every year the challenge of finding new ways to present this music is a difficult one this group relishes. ‘O Holy Night’ as a soulful ballad? ‘What Child Is This’ in a Latin style? Such are examples how unique arrangements can take age-old music down a fresh new path.
