Oakland East Bay Symphony (OEBS) and Music Director Michael Morgan have announced a special tribute concert to Dave Brubeck (1920-2012), the legendary composer/pianist and East Bay native who had an international and decades-long impact on the music world. "A Celebration of the Music of Dave Brubeck" will be a one-night-only concert featuring the full orchestra and guests Chris Brubeck, trombone and bass; pianist Taylor Eigsti; saxophonist Dayna Stephens; and special guest mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade, preceded by a 7 p.m. talk by Chris Brubeck, the late composer's son. The program will feature the Grammy-nominated "Ansel Adams: America," by Chris & Dave Brubeck, featuring 102 iconic images by the American photographer-the first time the Ansel Adams Trust has given permission for these images to be used in a concert setting; "Blue Rondo a La Turk," by Dave Brubeck; "Take Five" by Brubeck's renowned saxophone player, Paul Desmond; and other famous Brubeck standards. Proceeds will benefit the Oakland East Bay Symphony education and music programs, and the concert is sponsored by Bell Investment Advisors.
Presented by Oakland East Bay Symphony $35-$250.
