  • This event has passed.

Join composer-guitarist Steven Mackey and composer-percussionist Jason Treuting to celebrate the release of their first collaborative album, Orpheus Unsung, on New Amsterdam Records. Door at 7:30.

The “smart and dazzling” (Village Voice) quartet So Percussion (of which Treuting is a member) will take part in the festivities as well, performing in sections of Orpheus Unsung, as well as doing their own set of music selected from their illustrious repertoire.

Orpheus Unsung is an hour-long narrative for solo electric guitar (Mackey) and drums (Treuting) that traces the Greek myth of Orpheus in the underworld,casting Mackey’s electric guitar as the disembodied voice of the legendary musician, poet, and prophet Orpheus. Mackey’s virtuosic and exposed performance portrays Orpheus as he seeks to reverse fate and regain his irrevocably lost love, Eurydice, through the power of his divine musical gifts.
