Join us for a thrilling exploration of the new frontiers in chamber music. Stewart Copeland, rock star drummer and founding member of The Police turned acclaimed film composer and filmmaker, was ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as the fifth greatest drummer of all time. He will be joined by pianist Jon Kimura Parker, media personality, educator and veteran of the international concert stage, to produce cutting-edge chamber music that is propulsive, engaging and entirely unique.

Parker and Copeland are witty and articulate artists and their work explores improvisation, providing room for the artists to move past notes on the page. The performance will feature Copeland’s engaging compositions and standard classical repertoire, including Parker’s brilliant suite based on Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Instrumentation includes piano, violin, double-bass and percussion, as well as the EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument).

Tickets start at: $20 Adult & $11 Student/Youth
