Masters of Melody

Sat, Oct. 1, 2022 – Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza
Sun, Oct. 2, 2022 – Rancho Campana Performing Arts Center in Camarillo

A melody leads us to the heights of bliss and the depths of despair, but what are the keys to weaving together musical notes into emotional expression? Leading American composer and double bass virtuoso Xavier Foley illuminates the process of creating melodies and demonstrating their power.
