Jazz is a celebration of the spirit, eloquently describing real-life struggles with lost love, poverty, and losing your eyeglasses on top of your head. Enjoy the sweet sounds of jazz with today's Groupon: for $9, you get one admission to CNY Jazz Orchestra’s performance of Pictures at an Exhibition on Saturday, March 19 at 8 p.m. at the Carrier Theater (up to $20.50 value). Tickets can be picked up the Carrier Theater box office 30 minutes prior to the show. This admission is good for anywhere but the four seats closest to the aisle on either side of a row.
Pictures at an Exhibition mates digitally projected visual art with composer Charles Pillow’s modern jazz suite to create a multimedia event that enchants both the eyes and ears. The format for this event was inspired by esteemed Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky, whose iconic 1874 piano suite was sparked by the work of artist and architect Viktor Hartmann. Building on that idea, guest artist Charles Pillow will use musical themes from Mussorgsky to form an original piece, using members of the CNY Jazz Orchestra and adding guitar, harp, and vocalese. Blending this modern piece with visual art provided by the Orange Line Gallery gives this nineteenth century work a twenty-first century feel that pleases music lovers, art enthusiasts, and time-traveling bohemians alike.
