Jan 25, 2018

Get a drink, grab a seat up close, and settle in for an interactive performance as members of the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia play in the round. WRTI 90.1 Jazz Host Bob Craig will be on the scene for Beyond Bebop: Jazz, Classical and the Third Stream.

He'll provide background and insight on each work and lead conversations with the musicians between pieces. The performance concludes with a casual audience Q&A.

Beyond Bebop: Jazz, Classical and the Third Stream:
A deeper look into rich, fruitful, multifaceted dialogue between jazz and classical music and a genre-blurring exploration into new worlds of improvisation.
