Bristol Riverside Theatre is presenting the new series BRT’s One Night Stand with contemporary jazz group Spyro Gyra. The group will perform one show on February 14, 2019, at 8 p.m.
Contemporary Jazz Group’s Recipe for Longevity
With more than 10 million albums sold, Spyro Gyra has played over 5,000 shows on five continents. As part of a forward-looking approach, the contemporary jazz group never rests on past success–a recipe for longevity.
“My hope is that our music has the same effect on the audience that it does on me,” says group leader Jay Beckenstein. “I’ve always felt that music, and particularly instrumental music, has this non-literal quality that lets people travel to a place where there are no words. Whether it’s touching their emotions or connecting them to something that reminds them of something much bigger than themselves, there’s this beauty in music that’s not connected to sentences. It’s very transportive. I would hope that when people hear our music or come to see us, they’re able to share that with us.”
Tickets for the Spyro Gyra show start at $50 and are available by visiting brtstage.org or calling the BRT Box Office at 215-785-0100. Bristol Riverside Theatre is located at 120 Radcliffe Street in Bristol, PA.
Critically Acclaimed and Award-Winning Professional Theater
Since 1986, BRT has continued to bring critically acclaimed professional theater to Bucks County. The theatre is the recipient of more than 71 Barrymore Award nominations for Excellence in Theatre, given annually by Theatre Philadelphia.
BRT’s Mainstage season continues with Neil Simon’s The Sunshine Boys (March 12 – March 31, 2019) and The Christians by Obie Award-winning playwright Lucas Hnath (April 30 – May 19, 2019).
Under the direction of Artistic Director Keith Baker, Founding Director Susan D. Atkinson, and Managing Director Kevin Maroney, Bristol Riverside Theatre serves as a cultural hub for the community.
