Beyond Bebop: Jazz, Classical and the Third Stream

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Music University City & West Philly

A unique chamber music experience! Get a drink, grab a seat up close and settle in for an interactive performance as members of The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia play in the round. A host will provide background and insight on each work and lead conversations with the musicians between pieces. The performance concludes with a casual audience Q&A.
