BWW Feature: THIS WEEKEND IN CLASSICAL MUSIC 7/12 β 7/15
Check out what's happening this weekend in classical music:
Thursday July 12th 8pm
If you're looking to liven up your Thursday night, head down to (le) poisson rouge for Kishi Bashi featuring Ensemble LPR. It's sure to serve you a funk-tastic good time with some Beatles meets Handel slapped with a dash of rock-stank programming. It'll be a night to remember.
Friday July 13th 8pm
Hiroshi Hashimoto @ Carnegie Hall
For a sophisticated start to your weekend, grab a date and head to Carnegie Hall to hear Hiroshi Hashimoto on violin. With a lush program featuring Dvoràk, Prokofiev and Korngold, it's the perfect evening of concert hall foreplay revving up to a romantic night for two--or three, who am I to judge...
Saturday July 14th 7pm
Jojo Abot: "Power to the God Within" @ National Sawdust
This continues my unapologetic love affair with National Sawdust and their groundbreaking programming. Check out the multisensory experience Jojo Abot will create when they invite the shared community of humanity into an exploration of our inner sanctums. This is the kind of grounded kumbaya s I can get into.
Sunday July 15th 1pm
Go see a movie--a good one. Take a break from the stifling heat and fill your heart with the joy of Lenny Bernstein. The documentary, narrated by Lauren Bacall, is sure to soothe the Sunday-saddies and take your mind off the impending week ahead.
