Described as the “perfect storm of talent,” CPO’s Principal Percussionist Joshua Jones headlines the first evening of the Under the Influence Festival in Gareth Farr’s Percussion Concerto. Journey into the overwhelming emotion of Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony, and the eclectic and impossible-to-categorize artistry of Frank Zappa — the ‘70s musical icon who melds Stravinsky, Rock & Roll, and electronic collage in his iconoclastic, time-bending compositions.
