You got a problem? Want to make something of it? How about a song? First Person Arts and SPECTOR Projects bring the global phenomenon of the Complaint Choir to Philadelphia for the first time, with composer Evan Solot turning your frustrations into 4-part harmony. Stay after the performance to learn about the making of the Complaint Choir and its origins in Finland and its migration to choruses of complainers throughout the world.
SPECTOR Projects is the work of Shelley Spector, Philadelphia artist, curator and teacher. In recent exhibitions she set a new trajectory for her work by realizing a long-held goal: to create all-encompassing "total environments" of sight, sound, motion, and meaning in which the viewer is a participant rather than spectator.
Evan Solot composes for orchestras, jazz groups, pop recordings, dance and theater. His music has been performed by some of the country's leading jazz and pop performers, including Randy and Michael Brecker, Stanley Clarke, Kurt Elling, and Bette Midler. His commissions include pieces for Alaska, Mississippi, Illinois and Minnesota.
