"Welcome to the wild & wacky world of Elvis Schoenberg and his Orchestre Surreal!"
This is a FREE concert and I heard about this event through another group. It sounds quite fascinating - a distinctive orchestre doing a zany and eccentric rendition of The Nightmare Before Christmas Score.
This is perfect for any Tim Burton fans, Danny Elfman Fans or anyone who enjoys experiencing something a little avant-garde.
IThe musical performance is an hour long.
"Merry mayhem sweeps the WinterStage as Elvis Schoenberg's Orchestre Surréal presents their unique interpretation of the holiday classic "The Nightmare before Christmas." Known for their masterful ability to twist, translate, and ultimately transform classic standards into kinetic grab-bags of crafty camp creations, this L.A.-based group of studio musicians will offer the eclectic crew a platform upon which to showcase their explosive homage to Elfman’s classic score."

This is more about Orchestre Surreal:
"A wild and seductive orchestral ride that pushes against the boundaries of genre, and dares to suggest a world stripped of those borders, the Orchestre Surreal presents radically different artistic expressions that, in Elvis Schoenberg's world, have every obligation to collide. The result is a celebratory deconstructing of known and unknown songs with the wit and whimsy of Spike Jones and the musical complexities of Frank Zappa, and a showcasing of the wackiest wacky-savant orchestra of twenty-five musicians in recent history."
"Launched in 1997, the Orchestre Surreal came out of composer Ross Wright's mission to create a project that would strip away the barriers of cultural, generational, and artistic divide, and promote the message of open-mindedness through art. A student of the music of composers such as Arnold Schoenberg and the New Music school (his Bachelors Degree is from Cal State Northridge, and his Masters is from Cal State L.A.), as well as a devotee of Frank Zappa, the peculiar mixture of Wright's musical influences helped to further shape his vision."
