The rebel Classical Revolution Detroit series ventures forth to share the fun and profundity of this ancient art form in breweries across the state. Kicking off a new name, Gimmie Classical shows just how lively, rhythmic, participatory and humorous fine art music can be. Led by our host Mr. CutTime, Rick Robinson, and his CutTime Simfonica string quartet with DRUMS. Audience will join the fun on several «sonatas» and dances with toy percussion (shakers, tambourines and ONE cowbell) that bring out the kid in all of us. Enjoy fresh malt beverages, including root beer and soft drinks for the kids.
We'll play famous classical and symphonic adventures, and dance hits by Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, David Bowie, Michael Jackson and Robinson himself will have your friends saying «This is classical music? WOW!»
Food is TBD but might be BYO. Will decide as we get close. Tell your friends this'll be one to remember.
This event is made possible by Anonymous.
Rick Robinson is a former Detroit Symphony Orchestra member who started two famous ensembles by transcribing symphonic hits to take to smaller settings. He learned of the worldwide Classical Revolution movement in 2010, launched the Detroit chapter and quit DSO soon after to pioneer «new classical», a hybrid art form that info-tains newbies with some of the BEST symphonic music has to offer.
CutTime Simfonica began in 2010 with six strings, but Robinson quickly whittled that down to four and added percussion/drums to fit into clubs, bars and restaurants where REAL people like to discover music. A rotation of freelance musicians in the group features top Michigan Opera Theater and Michigan Philharmonic musicians.
CutTime means it's time to cut loose with classical music!
It's designed for people who HATE classical music.
