A history-making jazz ensemble with humble beginnings in a basement apartment below a laundromat on Manhattan’s West 55th Street...
the 12 tunes resulting from that collaboration of jazz and classical giants are a collector’s classic, and forged decades of new directions in concert halls, jazz clubs, and film scores. This performance will feature Orchestra 2001’s jazz players, including eight leading musicians from The Philly Pops.

MAY 2023 – Exhibition at Cherry Street Pier

GEORGE CRUMB: SCORES AT AN EXHIBITION will explore Philadelphia’s well-known contemporary composer (1929-2022) and long-time Orchestra 2001 collaborator, in a visual arts setting. His stunning visual scores are works of art, and presenting them in a gallery context allows for a more complete appreciation of these masterpieces. Exhibits of Crumb’s scores will be followed by performances of several of his chamber music works at Slought, Esperanza Arts, and Cherry Street Pier.  Crumb’s brilliant “Metamorphoses, 10 Fantasies for Amplified Piano, Book 2” (2020) will be performed by the musician he wrote it for, Orchestra 2001 pianist Marcantonio Barone, presented with images of the works of art that influenced Crumb’s modern take on “Pictures at an Exhibition.”
