Palisades Virtuosi creates an evening of music that celebrates stories in music. |
Our signature newly commissioned work is written by world renowned composer, Kerry Turner. Known for his eclectic and riveting rhythmic style, his works have been performed all over the globe. This new work creates a musical narrative for the famed early Gothic novel, "Vathek" written by William Beckford in 1782 and details "The History of the Caliph Vathek".
We are thrilled to feature an exciting guest artist!
Rob McClure, of Broadway fame, most recently nominated for a Tony for his role as Charlie Chaplin in the 2013 production of "Chaplin", will join us as narrator for the evening.
