June 5 World Premiere of Gregg Kallor's new piano quintet at The Sheen Center

We're teaming up with the fantastic Gregg Kallor for the world premiere of his new piano quintet, commissioned by The Classical Recording Foundation and funded by a generous gift from Linda and Stuart Nelson. The Quintet is based on the speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr.

The New York Times said of Gregg: "At home in both jazz and classical forms, [Kallor] writes music of unaffected emotional directness. Leavened with flashes of oddball humor, his works succeed in drawing in the listener - not as consumer or worshipful celebrant, but in a spirit of easygoing camaraderie."

Come check it out! Tickets start at $15, including a post-show hangout with free beer and wine!
