On Tuesday, the Fulcrum Point new music ensemble lives up to its name, presenting a concert called "Heroes and Demons", which explores the intersection of classical music and popular cultures from around the world. From the Indian Classical tradition to urban and rural traditions of the Americas, the concert aims to draw connections between legends and urban myths.
On paper, this is a risky concert. There is a fine line between multiculturalism and appropriation, and it will be interesting to see which side each of these pieces fall on.
I will be there Tuesday, so feel free to say hi and/or let me know what you thought of the concert. I'll post a review Tuesday night to initiate discussion. I'll be curious to see what you think.
