Join composer Phil Popham for his birthday and some charming, quirky chamber music. The first piece, Happy Hour, has four parts, each based on a different cocktail: Paradise Cocktail, Fallen Angel, Manhattan and Highland Fling. Biggest Little Dances, performed by Helix Collective, is travelling music on a journey from Burning Man to the depths of Lake Tahoe. Finally, Mauna Kea is a picture of our universe from the lens of a telescope trained on the night sky.
Popham writes music "any audience would love to hear and any group would love to play" (American Record Guide). He is composer-in-residence at the Tahoe Chamber Music Festival and his works have been performed at the New World Symphony, International Double Reed Society and White Lake Chamber Music Festival. Also performing oboe on the concert, Popham's playing has been called "elegant and lyrical" (White Lake Beacon), "soulful," "ravishing" and "absolutely magical" (Midland Daily News).
The concert will take place during Happy Hour so be sure to take advantage of the drink specials. The Silverlake Lounge does not take reservations. Seating is first come first served. It is important to be punctual. There is no cover and no drink minimum. The bar only accepts cash. This is a dive bar--casual attire is fine. Free parking onsite. Classical Revolution hosts Happy Hours at the Silverlake Lounge are on the first Saturday of every month.
