The Royal Opera House presents jazz musician and composer Chris Brubeck and L’Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne in a fantastic concert at the Civic Hall in Grays on Friday 12 July.
Jazz Meets The Classics – From Beethoven to Brubeck is a scintillating programme of jazz and classical music ranging from Brubeck’s own trombone concerto to Beethoven’s 7th Symphony. Chris Brubeck is the son of the late Dave Brubeck, who was such a significant figure in jazz. His son is carrying on the family tradition and is much in demand around the world.
The concert takes place as part of the Royal Opera House’s involvement in a project called A Common Territory; a network of English and French partners which will foster creative and collaborative work over three years. This network has been selected under the European cross-border co-operation Programme INTERREG IV. This is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. Its objectives are to share cultural activities and build an attractive region in which to live.
Young musicians from across Thurrock will have the opportunity to take part in masterclasses with composer and saxophonist Guillaume Saint James and perform during the concert with L’Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne and Chris Brubeck. RM19, the Royal Opera House Thurrock’s Youth Vocal Group makes one of its first appearances in this concert. RM19 will perform a fresh and exciting mixture of styles and repertoire, including music inspired by Brubeck.
Tickets for the concert are available from the Thameside Theatre Box Office on 0845 300 5264. Tickets cost £10, concessions £8.
