Bill Frisell's Big Sur Quintet

Valley Performing Arts Center

Northridge, CA 91330

7:30pm

In a career spanning more than 25 years and over 200 recordings, including 25 albums of his own, guitarist, composer, and bandleader Bill Frisell is now firmly established as a visionary presence in American music. He has collaborated with a wide range of artists, filmmakers and legendary musicians. But it is his work as a leader that has garnered increasing attention and accolades. The New York Times described Frisell’s music this way. “It's hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell. Mixing rock and country with jazz and blues, he's found what connects them: improvisation and a sense of play. Unlike other pastichists, who tend to duck passion, Mr. Frisell plays up the pleasure in the music and also takes on another often-avoided subject, tenderness." - See more at: http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/bill-frisells-big-sur...

If your favorite Downton Abbey characters wear butler’s uniforms and starched white aprons, this program is not to be missed! Join Sheryl Peters, educator, researcher, and PMH docent, as she explores the world of domestic service downstairs at Pasadena’s historic Fenyes Mansion . The art, objects, and furnishings on display in Fenyes Mansion speak eloquently of the taste, discernment, interests, and wealth of the four generations who lived there beginning in 1907. But that is only a part of the story. Who were the men and women who cooked and cleaned, tended the gardens, and minded the children? Who were these people who ran the household with precision and efficiency in support of this lavish lifestyle?
