Composer Or Matias Will Make Joe's Pub Debut on 9/15
The show will feature all original material, including selections from Or's upcoming musical, "The Wave". Based on a true story, The Wave reads as follows:
In 1967, a history teacher in Palo Alto turned an entire high school into a proto-fascist movement in just five days. While trying to demonstrate the national mentality in Germany during WWII, Ron Jones conduced an experiment which was to show how community and discipline can create something that is bigger than the individual, often with disastrous effects. He called it 'The Wave.'
Tickets to the show are $12 in advance and $17 at the door, and can be found here:
Or is equally passionate about classical, blues, pop, hip-hop, and jazz, and honed his training at Juilliard and then NYU. He has toured everywhere from New Zealand to Atlanta, often playing delta blues jams and classical recitals in the same week. His songwriting and passion for storytelling has fueled his love for the theater, where he recently served as music director and conductor of Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812.
