American Classic: Cato/Dover/Lark/Thurber at The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center
August 19 @ 7:30 pm
The Synergy Initiative is co-produced by Inon Barnatan and Clara Wu Tsai.
A musical explosion of joy with four creative powerhouses meeting at the intersection of blues, classical music, jazz, and songwriting. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert bandleader Louis Cato joins GRAMMY nominees Tessa Lark and clarinetist Mark Dover, along with Broadway-bound composer/bassist Michael Thurber, for never-before heard originals, arrangements, and improvisations that bring seemingly disparate stylistic influences into an organic, unique sonic experience.
SummerFest 2023 sees the return of the Synergy Initiative, a series co-produced by Inon Barnatan and Clara Wu Tsai, which invites top creators of music, dance, spoken word and visual arts to work together and create exciting projects that amplify one another’s vision and reach, expanding the audience’s horizons.
