Continuing its long history of working with outstanding composers of our time, the Apollo Chorus presents Jeff Beal, a multiple Emmy winner for many TV and film scores, including the Netflix series House of Cards. The program includes the Midwest premiere of Beal's The Salvage Men, and Poor in Spirit, with the composer himself performing on trumpet. Music of Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Randall Thompson and Eric Whitacre will complete this not-to-be-missed concert experience.
Jeff Beal is a composer with a genre-defying music fludity. A four-time EMMY® winner, Beal's approach is a favorite for more sophisticated works. His TV credits include HBO's ROME, CARNIVÀLE and the Netflix series HOUSE OF CARDS. His documentary work includes BLACKFISH, WEINER, THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES, AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER, which premiered at Sundance and will be in theaters in July, and BOSTON an upcoming documentary about the history of the Boston Marathon. Jeff's upcoming film projects include SHOCK AND AWE (directed by Rob Reiner).
Join us for Apollo After Hours, the Apollo Chorus's annual benefit. Held at Uptown Underground, the evening will feature a buffet dinner, three hours of open bar (wine, beer, well drinks), silent auction, and a cabaret-style performance by Chorus members.
