Raymond Scott Music Live at BAM
Friday, Dec. 7 @ 7:30pm
Remember all that great music from Warner Bros. cartoon, like “Powerhouse” and “Dinner Music For a Pack of Hungry Cannibals”? Even if you don’t know the names, you can’t forget the music, and Quartet San Francisco will perform an eclectic program featuring the high-energy, zany compositions of Raymond Scott, which were used later as cartoon music but were originally written for concert performance.
The Quartet’s lead Jeremy Cohen and fellow violinist Matthew Szemela, violist Keith Lawrence, and cellist Kelley Maulbetsch have created a signature crossover style that has earned them invitations to tour China, Korea, Japan, and Turkey. But you can hear them as part of the Berkeley Art Museum’s “L@TE” Events. (Please come early for best seating. A limited number of chairs will be available.)
