POP! Go The Classics
POP! GO THE CLASSICS showcases celebrated pianist and arranger Mac Frampton, accompanied by the ThreePenny Symphony, in a production that merges his conservatory training with his mastery of the pop and jazz idioms, bringing to the stage fresh and original interpretations of revered classical works.
Over his career, Mac Frampton has built a library of innovative arrangements based on classical themes. Pop! Go The Classics audiences will hear re-imagined renditions of "Pictures At An Exhibition," "Rachmaninoff’s Prelude In C# Minor" and "Flight Of The Bumblebee," all magnificently performed in signature Mac Frampton style.
It's as if Johann Sebastian Bach were alive and well and living in Greenwich Village. Included in the program: a twist on Chopin from the setting of a cool jazz club, and an exhilarating interpretation of "Rhapsody In Blue" by beloved American composer George Gershwin.
It’s classical music with a twist of pop. Mac Frampton has assembled a world-class ensemble of musicians trained in the classics, who bridge the gap to the pop arena and combine these parallel passions for an unforgettable musical experience. The ThreePenny Symphony will envelop your hall with a sound as powerful as fireworks and as soothing as a sunset.
