$12.00 - $45.00 ($9.00 - $42.00 Concert Member)
The 2016 Music Mash-Up series kicks off with a program featuring the so-called bad boys of jazz, The Bad Plus. The legendary jazz trio presents their original deconstruction of Igor Stravinsky’s once notorious masterpiece, “The Rite of Spring,” commissioned by Duke University and Lincoln Center for the Center’s Out-of-Doors festival in 2011. While the 1913 debut of the ballet performance in Paris triggered riots, The Bad Plus’ musical interpretation of the signature work, with beautiful projected images and videos, has been praised as “electrifying” (The New York Times) and “exhilarating…dramatic, dynamic” (The Boston Globe).
Each concert in the Mash-Up series will be preceded by a 5:30 PM Mash-Up Mixer in locations just outside Chautauqua Auditorium, featuring samples of food and drink from some of Boulder’s finest restaurants, breweries, and specialty food stores. Each Mixer is free to concert goers that evening, but only a limited number of first come, first served passes will be available to ticket holders at Chautauqua on the evening of the performance, so please arrive early.
