2300°: The '60s

November 17, 2005 5:30pm to 7:30pm
2300°: The '60s

Step back in time with us as we celebrate the opening of our new West Bridge show, "Decades in Glass: The '60s" and explore an era when experimentation in art, music and life in general broke new %%ground%% and created new paths.

Music by Hank Roberts
"Think there's no common %%ground%% between Bobby McFerrin, Yo Yo Ma and Jimi Hendrix? Think again..." says The Buffalo News about cellist Hank Roberts. Roberts' special 2300° performance will be a unique reflection of ideas that presented themselves in the '60s, such as social change and increased communication between diverse cultures.

Visual Interpretation by Jerome Sirlin
Roberts' music will be set to a visual multimedia interpretation of the '60s, designed by Tony-nominated set designer Jerome Sirlin, called "a dazzling visual stylist" by Time magazine. Sirlin regularly designs sets for Broadway shows, the New York Opera, and other major theater companies around the world.

Glass Demonstrations by Fritz Dreisbach
Known as "the Johnny Appleseed" of the American Studio Glass movement because of his unparalleled work in spreading the excitement of new techniques in the '60s and '70s, Dreisbach brings that history to the Hot Glass Show stage.
