Modern Jewish Minimalists: Awesöme Orchestra
Modern Jewish Minimalists: Awesome Orchestra Performs #SteveReich and #PhilipGlass In conjunction with "The 613 by #ArchieRand," contemporary classical musicians perform works by twentieth-century Jewish minimalist composers. The concerts take place in the galleries among the paintings. Awesome Orchestra will perform Steve Reich's "Nagoya Marimbas," and Philip Glass' "Cabin in the Rockies," "To Aunt Rose," and "Wichita Vortex Sutra." ABOUT AWESOME ORCHESTRA From a flash mob at BART to flooding the stage of the Fox Theater with musicians, Awesome Orchestra seeks musical adventures. In spring of 2013, conductor David Moschler called up a bunch of Bay Area musicians for an experiment--an open music reading session, with Beethoven, Bolero, and beer. Over fifty people showed up. They realized immediately that they had created something special: a musical group dedicated to being accessible on every level. What began as a small collective of friends playing music together has grown into a community that spans the Bay Area. Today, over 1000 local musicians have played in Awesome Orchestra. ADMISSION: $5 Members; $10 general, advance tickets required for seating. #613CJM Image: Awesome Orchestra. Photo by Dave Weiland.
