    Steven Mackey's SLIDE with actor/singer Rinde Eckert

    Orchestra 2001

    7 Lock Street, Philadelphia, PA 19127
    • Thursday November 16th 2017, 7:00pm to 9:00pm

    “Through a merging of rock and classical, the stylistic sliding is powerful and impressive.”  – LA Times

    "SLIDE is a character study of Renard, a psychologist played by Rinde Eckert, as told by a narrator/guitarist played by Steven Mackey. The musicians of Orchestra 2001 are a chamber group that Renard looks forward to rehearsing with every Thursday evening. They also serve variously as Renard’s imagined subjects or other phantoms within the protagonist's curious world and psyche. The music is a dish for musical omnivores and while the ingredients have been diced quite finely (and there is no quotation), the songs are seasoned with homages to Dowland, Mozart, Stravinsky, Piazzola, and The Beatles."
    – Steven Mackey

    The Philadelphia performance on November 16th will take place at Manayunk's Venice Island Performing Arts & Recreation Center. Additional performances are in Princeton University (NJ) on November 14th and at National Sawdust (NY) on November 17th.
