The CSO will present Ben Van Winkle and the Figment on Saturday, Feb. 17, at Walker Theatre. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert is at 7:30 p.m.
Review for the concert:
Local composer and singing-cellist Ben Van Winkle and his group of unique instrumentalists (The Figment) are joined by CSO musicians on the Walker Theater stage for one night only. Ben Van Winkle and The Figment make music in the moment, inspiring human connection through luscious textures, improvisation, and music that speaks to the soul. His music has been described as a seamless blend of Ravel's orchestration, John Mayer's song writing, and Disney's story driven melodies. Ignite your imagination, inspire your emotions, and connect to the universal human experience with Ben Van Winkle and The Figment.
The Figment includes Given Graber on electric bass, Ethan McGrath on piano, Gordon Inman on sax/reeds, Keith Lloyd on drums and Lon Eldridge on guitar. Adrienne Ziarkowski will dance and Maria Jordania will sing. There will also be musicians from the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera.
