The music of two innovators from the last two centuries comes together Saturday night in Tacoma. Tacoma Philharmonic and Broadway Center present ‘The Bad Plus – on Sacred Ground: Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring’. According to Billboard, The Bad Plus is America’s most “audacious, rule-breaking jazz trio”. They will be performing one of the most famous works of 20th century art, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, a work that at its premiere in 1913 caused a riot among the audience. A jazzy, rhythmic spin on this well-known adventurous piece will be a fascinating watch and listen. The concert will be held at Tacoma, Washington’s Pantages Theater this weekend on Saturday, March 10th at 7:30 P.M.
