Beethoven Festival Chicago

 

 

 

Beethoven Festival Chicago 2012Last week on Friday September 14th the Chicago Beethoven Festival commissioned several producers and popular acts to write and perform music inspired by themes from Beethoven’s third symphony in a series called the Rocketelle Project. I was honored to perform my own music featuring myself on trumpet and electronics and saxophonist Anthony Bruno.  A long list of acts performed including Brighton MA, Stranger Lazy and electronic producer Cos of Push Beats.  The project was added to the festival in order to reach out to an audience that may not normally attend a festival featuring Beethoven’s music.
