SERIES CONCERT – A Series of Unfortunate Musical Events with Low and Lower
Oct 11, 2019 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
First Presbyterian Church
Low & Lower, Brooks Whitehouse – cello and Paul Sharpe – bass, America’s #1 selling cello/bass duo celebrates its popular mashup of comedy, virtuosity and satire with a new show, A Series of Unfortunate Musical Events.
The show centers around a musical settings of two great adventure tales from the wilds of Alaska. In his musical morality play Eagle Feather, Paul Sharpe warns in epic verse of the moral and legal perils of transporting the body parts of endangered species across state lines. From the open waters of Alaska’s scenic Kachemak Bay to the suburban comforts of small town North Carolina, this modern classic pits the deep love of nature and of family against the deeper fear of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
From this we move to Robert Service’s timeless classic The Cremation of Sam McGee in a dramatic setting by composer John Allemeier – recited, sung and otherwise delivered by Low & Lower with tragedy, irony and humor as it has never been delivered before. This imaginative take on an old favorite moves seamlessly from recitative to fiddle tune to country ballad in an expansive telling of this tale of arctic redemption.
