Join us for the final concert in our new series Songs About Place, featuring Anthony Wilson and The Curators!
Jazz guitarist, composer, and arranger Anthony Wilson and The Curators–keyboardist Larry Goldings, drummer Barbara Gruska of The Belle Brigade, violinist and singer Petra Haden, and bassist Gabe Noel will perform Wilson’s original works written about geographies both familiar and strange. Influenced by his surroundings at home in Los Angeles, as well as places that have inspired him while touring throughout the U.S. and overseas, Wilson starts with the impressions left by many different towns and cities, specific landscapes and buildings, even rooms, and translates them into a musical form.
The progressive concert will take place in and around the extraordinary Sobieski family residence in South Pasadena, which “unfolds like a series of art-filled pavilions, with life spilling out into the garden spaces” (“L.A. Times”).
A flight of three wines—sparkling, white, and red—selected by Wilson (a natural-wine hobbyist); imported by Selection Massale in San Leandro, California; and sourced from small growers and producers in France who work sustainably in their vineyards and traditionally in the cellar, is included in the price of admission.
Guests will meander through indoor and outdoor environments, guided by wine pairings and performances throughout the property.
