The music mix will continue throughout the evening with performances by members of Art of Élan, Kontras Quartet and Marsalis.
“The entire evening is built around the idea of musical pathways and the surprising places they can take both the listener and performer,” explained Art of Élan founder Kate Hatmaker. “Not many people know about Branford’s love of classical music and we are thrilled to be able to share that part of his unique musicianship and talent.”
Visconti said his new work was composed with Marsalis in mind and “pays homage to hitchhikers, migrants, and vagabonds as the true mystics, martyrs, and inspiration of our soul.”
Art of Élan’s 11th season, named “Musical Pathways,” is taking a road that leads to a “unique and ambitious” jazz and classical music collaboration at the Music Box.
The concert is at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 8. Tickets are $50 in advance, $55 on the day of the show and $25 for standing room only.
