Program Three: New Music with Addi & Jacq, Williams and More
MARCH 18, 2015 | 7:30 bar/ 8 PM show | The C.O.W. 21 Clinton St., New York, NY
Addi & Jacqui, "A bit of elegance and a lot of fun," are an eclectic duo with an acoustic-oriented sound that bends from Rufus Wainwright and Feist to Nellie McKay and Paul Simon. This Wednesday, they're teaming up with Urban Playground Chamber Orchestra to perform arrangements of tunes from their debt album "Less Likely Places."
Urban Playground will also present three new works for chamber orchestra, including the world premiere of Beautiful Death by Evan Williams, a mediation on the 1947 suicide of Evelyn McHale. McHale famously jumped from the Empire State Building, culminating in an iconic photo by Robert Wiles in LIFE magazine.
