Today Kira and I went to a competition. It was a competition for classical musicians. We were there to see Sybarite5, our artists in residence. Now, I hate competitions, but I love music. Before Syb5 appeared, we sat through another performance, an impressive violist displaying off-the-chart emotion and technique. I thought, “She’s amazing.” I leaned over to Kira and whispered, “Why do they have to compete? Why can’t everyone win?” I sat enthralled, firm in my belief that music can save the world. Then Syb5 rocked the house. I mean, the audience went wild! If you think you don’t like classical musical music, this group will change your mind. Their arrangements of work by bands like Radio Head and Led Zeppelin have the effect of mind-expanding drugs. Seriously. If music can save the world, this group is in the front line. We are thrilled to be presenting Sybarite5 this Saturday night. There is no other place I know of in this city where you can intimately experience top-notch performers for next to nothing. Please come! If your not blown away, we’ll refund your price of admission.
PS. They won!
