Tickets on Sale for Jazz Show at The MAIN

The Red Guitar, a Jazz Libretto by Bruce Forman

Post Date:02/06/2018 9:38 AM

Imagine receiving an invitation to a gala featuring John Coltrane, Sigmund Freud and Faust. Bruce Forman’s “The Red Guitar” is all that and more. The City of Santa Clarita invites you to attend this musical performance in an intimate setting at The MAIN, located at 24266 Main Street in Old Town Newhall. Tickets are on sale now. The concert will begin at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 10, and tickets are $20 each.

“The Red Guitar” is a story that explores the genesis and nature of our passions and what lengths we are willing to go to serve them. It draws on Forman’s decades of experience as a formidable jazz guitarist and his considerable skill as a storyteller and teacher, producing a work that is greater than the sum of its dazzling parts.

A story in and about jazz, “The Red Guitar” showcases Forman’s genre—breaking inventiveness and his ability to improvise and create within a classical form. Enlisting the full power of the jazz idiom and integrating it with seasoned and provocative story-telling, he confronts the dilemma of artistic obsession face-to-face. This is achieved by creating a work of art that simultaneously explores and demonstrates the hold that music has over its most ardent followers, the hold that poses itself as a life-or-death, must-be-solved-question: “The Red Guitar.  Do you play it…or does it play you?”

See where you stand. See and hear “The Red Guitar.” Purchase tickets by visiting AtTheMain.org/tickets.
