The Wedding & Funeral Orchestra (6/15)

Monday, June 15, 2009 (TONIGHT!)

“Bregovic creates the most breathtaking music on this continent . . . intense, vigorous, colorful, passionate, exotic, fascinating.” –El Pais (Madrid)

The Sarajevo-born musical icon of the Balkans is best known in North America for his compositions written for the films of director Emir Kusturica (Underground, Time of the Gypsies). Bregovic has been likened to peers Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota, creating unforgettable scores that transcend their medium. Joined by his Wedding and Funeral Orchestra, featuring a Serbian gypsy band, a string ensemble, a men’s choir, and three Bulgarian singers, Bregovic marries the dance tunes of a raucous gypsy brass band with traditional Eastern European choral music—all with a rock and roll edge. Bregovic’s live concerts are an event, cathartic, delirious, and joyous. (PLUS, he drinks wine on stage)

$45, CMA members $43. 7:30 p.m.
