Classical pianist Jon Kimura Parker, rock drummer Stewart Copeland (The Police), and a chamber ensemble, converge at the intersection of score-based and improvised musical worlds. The Conservatory has commissioned Copeland to write a new piece specifically for this occasion. Stewart Copeland and Jon Kimura Parker are used to breaking the mold. With three incredible collaborators, they have created a quintet that has one foot in the classical world and its other foot all over the place. Jackie and Stewart are joined by the brilliant violinist Yoon Kwon, whose day job is in the Met Opera Orchestra; the dynamic double bassist, Marlon Martinez, a Stanley Clarke protégé; and Judd Miller, the extraordinary proponent of the EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument) who lends a gorgeous textural element to the proceedings. Both Jon Kimura Parker and Stewart Copeland are witty and articulate artists who share their fresh ideas as they move beyond the notes on the page and perform an evening of chamber music for a new generation: propulsive, engaging, interesting and, most of all, fun!
