Corky Siegel's Chamber Blues

Saturday, Jul. 20 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)


"Leaves You Speechless" - St. Paul Pioneer Press

Chamber Blues (Lila Wallace - national composition award recipient) is a compositional tapestry that interweaves the apposing forces of classical music and the blues to create a depth of passion, dimension, and joyful surprise that can even cure the common cold.

This experience is augmented by the singular blues harmonica and piano styles of Chicago blues hall of famer Corky Siegel, a brilliant classical string quartet, and world music percussion virtuoso Kalyan Pathak who approaches this exotic Indian hand drum (Tabla) with such compassion it will lift you out of your seat.

"Gritty Chicago blues and rarefied classical chamber music might not seem like a match made in heaven — until you’ve heard Corky Siegel bring the two together … a crowning achievement.” Howard Reich – Chicago Tribune

"Leaves you speechless: Combination that can't be missed. - Words are useless.  Corky Siegel stole my tongue with the kind of blues harmonica that had otherwise dignified people stomping their feet and letting out whoops of joy. Chamber Blues has married Muddy Waters and Mozart with this amazing combination of blues and classical that dazzled the audience - do your eyes and ears a favor - go and see this show." - ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS
