Smile: The Music of Brian Wilson
Contemporary Improvisation Department Concert
Scott Sandvik, director- New England Conservatory, 33 Gainsborough St , Boston,MA - Feb 25, 8PM Jordan Hall - Admission FREE
Come for an evening of our "Pet Sounds," as NEC improvisors celebrate
the music of Brian Wilson, former Beach Boy. Each year the creativity
of NEC's Contemporary Improvisation department comes together around
the musical genius of pop music giants, from Stevie Wonder to Burt
Bacharach. This year's celebration is a journey into the vast,
untapped repertoire of Brian Wilson, the Beach Boys auteur. Wilson's
music extends far beyond surfin' and cars, and is sure to bring a
smile in NEC's improvisations, arrangements, and recompositions. Led
by NEC faculty guitarist Scott Sandvik, the evening's performers
include saxophonist Allan Chase, current NEC Dean of Faculty, plus
students, alumni, faculty, and friends.
Brian Wilson opened up his "world tour" with a 41 song set in Stockholm. Besides playing Pet Sounds in it's entirety, he has also added Meant For You and Friends to his setlist from last summer's Paul Simon tour.
Brian is scheduled to appear on the Johnnie Walker show on January 28 from 12PM Noon to 2PM USA Eastern Time. Fans outside of the United Kingdom should be able to listen in on Radio 2
