Make sure you join us this week (11/8/14) on Time for the Blues as Henry Cook and I are pulling out all the stops for the last couple of months of 2014. Every song is a killer and you won’t want to miss a single one!
If I were one to use all caps, in order to prove a point--as in trying to shout about this week's World Music Show (11/8), then the entire text would in essence be all caps and look like I was yelling. But, luckily for you, I don't need to scream or get in your face about this week's show. I don't even need to use exclamtion points. Because the music selected for the two hours, will simultaneously be in your face, while at the same time, not over power you to turn the chanel.
This weekend, the Richmond Ballet will collaborate with the Richmond Symphony and RSO Chorus in a performance of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, choreographed by John Butler. The performances will take place at the Carpenter Theatre Friday (10/31) evening at 7:00 p.m., Saturday (11/1) at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., and Sunday (11/2) at 2:00 p.m.
Alright, here's the low-down for this week's World Music Show (11/1). By now, if you're a frequent listener to this venue of world tunes, then you know that we regularly criss-cross the globe in the formats of both time and space. And if you don't know this, well then, this may be the perfect show for you to dip your musical toes into. Wait, that metaphor really clashes with all normal standards, which actually fits right in with this week's show.
Thursday night (10/30) at 8:00 p.m. at VCU’s Singleton Center, drummer Scott Clark will lead his group The Scott Clark 4tet in a performance of a new work called “Bury My Heart,” a suite that draws on the history of Native Americans and their subjugation by the United States Government. The title for the work comes from Dee Brown’s 1970 book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.
