Cirque du Soleil Musicians to Showcase Works at the Santa Monica Pier Twilight Concert Series, 8/9
Musicians from Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas will perform their individual arrangements as part of the Twilight Concert Series at the Santa Monica Pier at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9. 2012.
Cirque du Soleil productions are known for breathtaking acrobatics, amazing costumes and impressive music. On Aug. 9, the musicians will break from their regular schedule and showcase original arrangements for one night only. The concert will feature Cirque du Soleil musicians from the Las Vegas-based “O”, Mystère and Zumanity shows who will perform an eclectic mix of numbers ranging from Pop and Rock to Latin Jazz, Funk, Neo-Soul and Afro-Pop.
This initiative is spearheaded by the Cirque du Soleil Global Citizenship Service as part of the PARADE program which aims to provide encouragement, support and resources to employees who pursue artistic endeavors outside the scope of their work at Cirque du Soleil. The Twilight Concert Series, which emphasizes works by emerging artists, is a perfect platform for Cirque du Soleil musicians to extend their reach to a large, untapped audience, and to feature their own work outside of Cirque.
The event is free and open to the public. More information can be found at twilightseries.org.
WHEN: 7 to 10 p.m.
