Beethoven to Brubeck

Sat, Nov. 4, 2023 – Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza
Sun, Nov. 5, 2023 – Rancho Campana Performing Arts Center in Camarillo

American photo legend Ansel Adams and the iconic Brubeck jazz family talents combine sweeping melodies with 102 striking photographic images projected above the orchestra. Few people realize that Adams trained to be a classical musician, a fact which greatly influenced his work. Beethoven’s mighty Fifth is the most recognized piece of music in history and forever changed what people thought music could do, what music could be.
