Cambridge Symphony Orchestra: Family Concert
The Cambridge Symphony Orchestra's annual Family Concert is a chance for music lovers of all ages to enjoy a variety of classical music for the whole family. This concert includes Prokofiev's beloved retelling of Peter and the Wolf: the classic story set to music, with a cast of characters including a duck, a pet cat, and the foreboding wolf himself. Leslie Wu Foley, the Helaine B. Allen Director of Education and Community Engagement for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, narrates. We're also thrilled to invite New England Conservatory young artist Nicolas Bass to perform the final movement of the Elgar Cello Concerto. After the concert, children are invited to our instrument petting zoo, where they can try out string, woodwind, and brass instruments themselves.

Collage and its History (2020-01-26 starts at 10:00 AM)
From its roots in European Dadaism in the early years of the twentieth century, shadowing modernism and tracing its way through photography, collage is a medium as diverse as it is politically charged. Emerging as a reaction to the First World War, collage allowed artists to interact with existing materials – anything from newsprint and magazines to maps, tickets and propaganda and photographs – to rip them apart and then reassemble them, creating visually dynamic hybrids. Inspired by self-discovery this workshop will encourage participants to learn the mystery of collage with a contemporary surreal twist with the help of text and storytelling.By completing this booking request, you acknowledge that this is a request that needs to be confirmed by our Partners.

Bill Sebastian and the Outerspace Visual Communicator, Night Four: The Either/Orchestra
Doors open at 8Sets at 9:00, 9:45, 10:30 Twelve audience members at a time will don virtual reality visors and become immersed in 3D visuals which Bill Sebastian will create in response to live music. The other audience members and the musicians will see a 2D rendering of the visuals on large screens. After 30 minute set, the next group of twelve audience members will put on the visors for a 30 minute set; twelve more will wear the visors for the third and final set. All audience members are welcome to stay through the whole performance, but each member is only guaranteed a visor for one set. On Night Four, the music will be provided by the Either/Orchestra, a 10-piece ensemble led by Accurate Records chief Russ Gershon. This will return Bill Sebastian to his original inspiration of playing with a large jazz ensemble, and indeed the E/O is deeply inspired by Sun Ra and his Arkestra. (see back story below) You are invited to BYO beverages we'll have cups and ice. Because of the amount of electronic gear that will be in the studio, we will not be serving food. _____________________________________________________________ The back story: In the mid 1970's, MIT refugee Bill Sebastian was inspired by Sun Ra to create a light machine unrivaled by any other in existence. Barely after the era of oil-on-glass light shows at rock concerts, Bill hand-wired thousands of electronic parts into a giant color screen on which he could improvise light gestures and patterns as wild as Sun Ra's music. Upon being shown the OVC, Sun Ra signed up Bill to perform with the Arkestra in an epic twelve night performance in December 1978 at the Modern Theater in Boston, at that time a crumbling porn house. After the first night was cancelled due to a lack of heat in the building, the rest of the run treated audiences (including Accurate Records honcho Russ Gershon) to an unparalleled onslaught of sound and light. The OVC was transported to NYC for another run with the Arkestra in 1979, and in June of 1981 the machine and the Arkestra performed at the Mass College of Art for four nights. After that, the cumbersome OVC, with thousands of solders, began to degrade and the OVC-Sun Ra era was over. Bill went on to a career in tech, with over 70 patents to his credit, and began developing a successor to the OVC, based around virtual reality visors. In the OVC2, the viewer can turn their head and look around a 3D space in which the visual artist manipulates virtual objects. Bill's performances with music feature some pre-formed objects and some which he improvises in response to music. Up until now, Bill's performances have been accompanied by recorded music, but during this five night run at Accurate Records, he will be returning to performing with top-tier musicians for the first time since his period with Sun Ra.
