The diversity band SkyBridge, led by Utako Toyama, presents its latest program of original songs. The show will feature an appearance by a member of the Spontaneous Composition Ensemble. Its slogan is "We look so different, we all smile the same."
Drummer Carlo Ribaux presents Jethro Tull's (Anti-) Progressive Rock masterpiece Thick as a Brick in its entirety. The composition, from 1972, spans two entire sides of an LP and is hardly ever performed live because of its length and complexity. Nine Berklee musicians stood up to the challenge to transcribe, learn, and perform this piece, and would love for you to join them when they premiere it on October 25.
Inna Dudukina is a refined jazz vocalist with a special gift for composing and arranging. She treats her songs as internal monologues, and her jazz ensemble has a unique approach to music. The show includes originals as well as innovative and sophisticated arrangements in which well known tunes contain tricky extensions of form and unexpected changes of style and meter, or are juxtaposed with other songs.
