Celestial & Submerged Objects

Join a powerhouse group set to navigate the depths of the ocean and explore the celestial realm through the work of American composer George Crumb.

Lauded by David Bowie, and only recently departed this world, George Crumb was in the eyes of his contemporaries a visionary who reinvented the musical wheel.  A maverick among revolutionaries, Crumb’s music evokes a sense of awe, wonder and enigmatic beauty in the way it channels a vast array of influences from the spatial concept of stars and heavens, to the call of humpback whales.

This twilight affair of expression at the limits channels cabaret, recital and whimsy in breathtaking fashion, showcasing consummate musicianship, thrilling audacity and imagination.

If Bach, Debussy, Bartok, jazz, the mythical, primordial or comedy are your bag, this is your night under the stars.
