Comments Off on Hidden Valley Ante Chamber Orchestra, Thurs Mar 15

Thursday March 15, 2018, at 8 pm, $10 reg, $5 students. The Hidden Valley Ante Chamber Orchestra features Ian Brown, Leah Korkowski, Jonathan Malström, Sophia Perlman and Nigel Stewart. They began meeting under cover of darkness (and highway overpass) in the summer of 2017, confusing late-night commuters with their symphonic stylings and late-night strip-club goers with their lack of navigation skills. As winter trudged on, they sought an indoor playground to continue their exploration of the songs and hidden talents that rarely see the light of day. Artword Artbar seemed like the perfect place.

The core idea of using pop music as source material for creative exploration is still very much alive…It is easier to appreciate (and follow) where these artists take the music when you already understand where they started… Snarky Puppy, Mehliana, The Worst Pop Band Ever…” Kevin Hurley, Huffington Post
