The final free public performance in the Zanesville Museum of Art’s 2013 Musical Color program series will take place Saturday, Sept. 21.
The 2013 Musical Color events are presented by PNC Arts Alive, a multi-year investment from the PNC Foundation that supports visual and performing arts groups with the goal of increasing arts access and engagement in new and innovative ways.
This concert will be a Jazz Sampler in the Museum’s Great Gallery at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. The two performances will be the same, with an interval of refreshments in the Museum Atrium at 3 p.m.
Musical Color programs showcase relationships between the visual arts and music. Works from the museum's permanent collection depicting the movement, color and improvisation as found in the Jazz Sampler include: Jacques Villon, Untitled Abstraction, 1947; Hans Ernie, Bacchus and Nymph; and Pablo Picasso, Dancing Fauns, 1957.
Concert series organizer David Schubach has had his original musical compositions performed by symphony orchestras, concert bands, jazz bands and solo artists in southern California and the Midwest.
In Hollywood, Schubach was twice-elected vice president of the Los Angeles Musicians Union, working closely with the Recording Artists Coalition (Don Henley, Sheryl Crow, & Carole King) to lobby for artists' rights.
Closer to home, he was commissioned to compose a pops trumpet concerto for the Southeastern Ohio Symphony Orchestra and a new score for the Charlie Chaplin silent film, The Immigrant, which premiered at Ohio University-Zanesville.
Musical Color concerts are free and open to the public, but reservations are advised for the Jazz Sampler and can be booked by calling 452-0741 or stopping by the Museum.
