Jenny Q Chai in Sonorous Brushes @Spectrum

In this program, Chai has delved deep to highlight the connections between art and music. Finding strong connections between our auditory and visual senses, she takes this exploration one step further--rounding out the program with one of the most 'millennial' things I've heard since 'avocado toast.' The concert concludes with the employment of AI, which will create impactful visuals made as a direct response to her playing. This sounds intoxicatingly 'Brooklyn' and I can't wait.

Its sweeping score and demanding vocal writing are a necessary reprieve from the screlting found at nearby theatres. If this isn't draw enough, operatic super-star Ms. Renée Fleming shutting it down in her Tony nominated Nettie Fowler should do the trick.
