“Bach Meets Bluegrass” – May 15

Wednesday, May 15, 10-11 a.m.

Live! Music Insights: “Bach Meets Bluegrass”

Susi Q Senior Center, 380 3rd St, Laguna Beach.

Cost: Free. For reservations, click here.

Laguna Beach Live! and the Philharmonic Society of OC team up again with 2020 Grammy nominee Tessa Lark and the Susi Q to present “Bach Meets Bluegrass” with award-winning songwriter/bassist/producer Michael Thurber.

Lark is one of the most captivating artistic voices of our time. Following a summer that saw her perform with New York’s Carnegie Hall Citywide, La Jolla Music Society SummerFest and the Ravinia Festival, highlights of Lark’s 2023-24 season include the world premiere of Carlos Izcaray’s Violin Concerto – written for her – under the composer’s baton with the Alabama Symphony.

Songwriter/Bassist/Producer Thurber is a singular artist whose career defies category. Whether composing scores for The Royal Shakespeare Company, playing bass on The Late Show with the Stephen Colbert house band, scoring shorts for Vanity Fair and BBC, or co-founding the hit YouTube channel CDZA (30 million views), Thurber has been guided by Duke Ellington’s principle: There are only two types of music – good and bad. Make the good kind.
