WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Stewart Copeland and Jon Kimura Parker are two artists used to breaking the mold. With three incredible collaborators, they have created a quintet that has one foot in the classical world and its other foot all over the place. As the iconic drummer of The Police, Copeland's sound is immediately recognizable the world over. Jon Kimura Parker is a pianist whose forward looking programming is matched by his incredible chops. In Off the Score Stewart and Jon will explore the intersection of the notes on the page combined with the improvisational instincts of the rock and jazz musician. It is the rare classical musician that can improvise, as it is the rare rock musician who reads music. Both Jon Kimura Parker and Stewart Copeland are witty and articulate artists who are eager to share their fresh ideas as they move beyond the notes on the page and perform an evening of chamber music for a new generation: propulsive, engaging, interesting and, most of all, fun!
