Electronica and classical music collide at Mercury Soul, a hybrid musical event that re-imagines the classical music experience in extraordinary spaces. Interspersed with thrilling performances by Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra musicians and the thumping beat of PSO’s Composer of the Year, DJ Mason Bates, Mercury Soul gives audiences the freedom to dance, roam and experience music and art installation in a club setting. Visual director Anne Patterson collaborates with CMU’s School of Drama to create media and lighting design inspired by the music. No program book and plenty to drink: a 21st Century ‘salon’ at its finest!

Adams: Selections from John’s Book of Alleged Dances
