Songs About Place: Anthony Wilson and The Curators
For the final concert in Pasadena Conservatory of Music's new series Songs About Place, jazz guitarist, composer, and arranger Anthony Wilson; keyboardist Larry Goldings; drummer Mark Ferber; violinist and singer Petra Haden; and bassist Gabe Noel, will perform Wilson's original works written about geographies both familiar and strange.
Influenced by his surroundings at home in Los Angeles, as well as places that have inspired him while touring throughout the U.S. and overseas, Wilson starts with the impressions left by many different towns and cities, specific landscapes and buildings, even rooms, and works to translate them into a musical form.
The progressive concert will take place in and around the extraordinary Sobieski family residence in South Pasadena, which "unfolds like a series of art-filled pavilions, with life spilling out into the garden spaces" ("L.A. Times").
A flight of three wines--white, red, and sparkling--selected by Wilson (a natural-wine hobbyist); imported by Domaine L.A.(http://domainela.com/); and sourced from small growers and producers in France who work sustainably in their vineyards and traditionally in the cellar, is included in the price of admission.
Designed by the firm Koning Eizenberg, the Sobieski family's house was transformed from a 1940s South Pasadena ranch house into a cluster of function-specific structures that create an airy indoor-outdoor compound, which the "L.A. Times" has said "feels like an artists' colony." The 3,265-square-foot main house is kept company by smaller, linking boxes adorned in Japanese burnt cedar, each topped with a roof garden and deck.
Guests will meander through indoor and outdoor environments, guided by wine pairings and performances throughout the property.
