Jason Moran and Theaster Gates

8:00 PM
Looks of a Lot
Friday, May 30, 2014

Innovative jazz pianist Jason Moran and artist Theaster Gates will collaborate on a new work giving context to the phrase originally attributed to the Quakers: "speak truth to power." As envisioned by two of today's most inventive and brilliant artists, this Symphony Center Presents Jazz series commission will feature a series of new blues compositions by Moran presented in the context of reimagined stage elements made by Gates.

This program is part of the CSO’s Truth to Power exploration.

This concert is a part of our POST series–$35 tickets include a 21+ after-concert lounge. Use promo code POST at checkout!
