Coming up: March 28 & 29 – 8pm at Town Hall
The Bushwick Book Club Seattle has teamed up with the Seattle Jazz Composers Ensemble and Eric Lane Barnes to present original music inspired by The Old Testament.
10 Songwriters have written 10 new songs based on 10 stories form the Bible’s Old Testament. SJCE took these songs and arranged them for a 7-piece band and chamber choir. At the end of March, all this comes together to bring you an evening of song, comedy, and theater, re-imagining stories from one of the oldest, influential, and controversial books we know.
I will be premiering a new Crystal Beth work inspired by Leviticus. I’m quite excited about the song in general and getting to arrange it for 7-piece band and choir is pretty dreamy. There will be some trumpet blasting, heavy artillery, and primal screaming…yes!
Other performers include: Eric Lane Barnes / Lisa Koch / Tamara Power Drutis / Bucket of Honey / Wes Weddell / Spekulation / Tai Shan / Amanda Sue Winterhalter / Vince Martinez
With arrangements by: Wayne Horvitz, Michael Owcharuk, Nate Omdal, David Marriott and more…
