CLASSICAL MUSIC TAKES ON UNUSUAL FORMS AT GRUNIN CENTER

Résonances boréales – Northern Vibes shows how classical music can take on an unusual form when it kicks off the classical series at the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts at Ocean County College for the 2017-2018 season. Performances take place on the OCC Main Campus, College Drive, Toms River, NJ.

Résonances boréales – Northern Vibes: Wednesday, October 4, 2:00 p.m., and Friday, October 6, 7:30 p.m., $20. Light Refreshments will be served. Location: Novins Planetarium. This unique classical concert takes the form of a multimedia projection in the planetarium. With an upright piano anchored to the rock of the Canadian Shield, Roman Zavada created new piano compositions inspired by the aurora borealis of the Northwest Territories. Zavada then returned to the scene of his creation to capture with his video team the northern lights in 360 degrees and in real time. Acclaimed by critics and the public for its beauty and originality, this outstanding 360 degree piano performance immerses the audience above the 60th parallel deep into the heart of the northern spirit.
