A Howling Good Time: Jazz Macabre
The experience of a live concert at Studio 59Live Arts is extraordinary. This unique venue showcases a German Steinway grand piano in the center of the performance area; the audience enjoys the performance from wing backed or parlor chairs in this 18th century style drawing room. The high ceiling within this former church space provides unparalleled acoustics.
The Grim String Quartet is formed by four accomplished musicians who have performed their own work in different venues but who have banded together for this one night of jazz experience. According to the wonderful WNPR story about the event , the performers are Preston Parish, Jonathan Talbott, Kip Beacco, and Joe Salamone.
Parish says, “We're all involved in different projects outside of this group, and our distinctive sound is really shaped by the experience we bring to this seasonal repertoire as improvisational musicians.”
Those who enjoy Tim Burton movies and Django Reinhardt will LOVE the Grim String Quartet.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $12 for students/seniors
