Chamber Music for a New Generation: Stewart Copeland & Jon Kimura Parker’s “Off The Score”

Music lovers are in for a treat. This Friday, April 8, World renowned drummer, 5 time- Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Stewart Copeland and Acclaimed pianist Jon Kimura Parker are joining together in a unique musical program titled, “Off the Score.” The program promises to “explore the intersection of the notes on the page combined with the improvisational instincts of the rock and jazz musician.

Copeland was described by Downtown Magazine writer, Kellie M Walsh as, “that rare bird of rockstar in a classical world, a wide, wild fury of flailing arms, eye teeth, polyrhythms and flying drumsticks infiltrating the lush, regimented tradition of the symphony. Copeland is the guy that brings a trashcan to a concerto.” It is with this passion for both contemporary and classic musical styles that Copeland designs this special program along with renowned musician Jon Kimura Parker.

The evening will also be a collaboration with established musical artists such as Metropolitan Opera Orchestra violinist Yoon Kwon, classical/jazz double bassist Marlon Martinez and electronic valve instrumentalist Judd Miller. Program selections may include classical standards, Copeland originals, a modern interpretation of The Police and possibly Aphex Twin.
