Jon Kimura Parker CD Release Concert!
Tuesday, May 7 at 6:00 pm
The Grange on Orcas Island

It will be a grand evening at The Grange when Jon Kimura Parker performs a special CD release concert! This is Jackie’s first solo recording in ten years, and features his own transcriptions of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and Petrouchka. Released as a celebration of the centenary of the 20th century’s most famous (and infamous) work, The Rite of Spring, the concert will include Jackie’s description of how he came to tackle this monstrously difficult work, a complete performance of The Rite, and some of his secrets in bringing a whole orchestra to life at the piano. The program will also include short works including Vladimir Horowitz’s favorite encore, Schumann’s Träumerei.

Following the concert, Jackie will be available for a CD signing, and guest will enjoy delectable hors d’oeuvres from Orcas Village Store and Thurston Wolfe wine.  Tickets are $75.  To reserve, call the OICMF Office, 360-376-6636 or email joyce@oicmf.org.
