Crossing Over!!

It's fun for us too!! We're looking forward to this Sunday's "Classical Crossover" concert when - after a first half of classical masters Mozart & Beethoven - we can let our hair down and play some of the excellent jazz crossover / classical music by Frenchman Claude Bolling. ACP flutist Christina Smith and cellist Brad Ritchie will alternately be featured with the jazz trio of pianist Brent Runnels, bassist Kevin Smith and drummer Justin Varnes for several of the most popular movements from Bolling's Suite for Flute / Cello with Jazz Trio. Brent is a really special pianist, a real crossover expert, as he is one of the rare superb classical pianists who also feels right at home in the jazz world. I can't wait to kick my shoes off (after performing my favorite Mozart piano trio, K. 502) - and sit with you in the audience to enjoy Claude Bolling's crossover music exactly as it was envisioned... performed by first class classical musicians with first class jazz artists. See you this Sunday Jan 29th, 3:00 pm!  www.atlantachamberplayers.com  for details
