CLASSICS: PLAY — Festival of American Music 2

Saturday, April 7, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

SAT 07 APR :: Jim James, lead and founder of the indie-rock band My Morning Jacket, joins with Teddy Abrams to create a set of 7 songs for band and orchestra. Including his top hits, selections from his latest album and new material — a brand new collaboration between James and Abrams.

Andrew  Norman’s Play, the 2017 Grawmeyer competition winner, is being talked about as the most important new work of our time. Teddy Abrams premiered Natural History by Michael Gordon at the 2016 Britt Festival. Requiring a massive array of musicians and dancers, the piece is an homage to the grandeur of the Pacific Northwest region of our country. Together with his wife Julia Wolfe, Michael Gordon are founders of the acclaimed Bang on a Can Festival and contemporary music organization in New York City.
