Cellist/composer Jacob Szekely is a bit of a musical Einstein. His compositions and performances have a reputation for combining technical virtuosity with a deep emotional connection with his audiences. He’s been tapped to perform and tour worldwide with headlining artists including Rush, Mary J. Blige, Jay Z, Ellie Goulding and Avril Lavigne. But it’s not just his prowess as a composer and cellist that set him apart as a musician – it’s his inventions for musicians.
On August 21, 2015, Szekely will shine a spotlight on four creations of his:
1) his debut recording with his JS3 trio;
2) his revolutionary invention, The Pickup Test;
3) his Improvisor’s Guide to the Cello; and
4) his co-creation of the acclaimed String Project LA. Szekely has created Circle of Creation, an event for musicians, students, press, fans and the public that will include demonstrations of the Pickup Test; listening stations; a short talk by Szekely; an opening concert by String Project LA students; and two full concerts by JS3. The event will take place at the buzzed-about Los Angeles art gallery Muzeumm, located in the burgeoning creative enclave of West Adams.
Admission is $20 and includes a signed copy of the debut JS3 CD. Small bites will be provided, and the cash bar will be open. The program is: 5pm doors open / 6pm String Project LA concert / 7pm Ted-style Talk / 8pm Jacob Szekely Trio(JSIII) performs.
