Pat Metheny: The Orchestrion Tour
(Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))
World-renowned guitarist/composer Pat Metheny has won an extraordinary 17 Grammy Awards and has been nominated 33 times in 12 different categories, more than any other performer in Grammy history. Aside from all the critics' awards and fan accolades, Pat's focus remains continually on the breaking down of barriers and the exploration of new musical ideas. This tour is no exception as Pat moves from brilliant solo guitar improvisations to the unveiling of a totally new technology for the presentation of an acoustically-driven "solo ensemble" music he is dubbing Orchestrionics. The performance will feature music from the forthcoming CD of all new original compositions, as well as some older tunes from the Metheny songbook.more information...
