Concert: Fairfield’s Rockin’ Top Ten | Fairfield, CT

Date/Time

Jan 16, 2014 to Apr 28, 2014

Description

Fairfield’s Rockin’ Top Ten celebrates 10 musicians who have helped create our region’s musical legacy, including Nick Ashford & Valerie Simpson, The Remains, Leonard Bernstein, David Brubeck, Jose Feliciano, Chris Frantz & Tina Weymouth, Richard Rodgers, Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards, Keith Richards and Donna Summer. For more than 75 years, some of America’s most renowned musicians have called Fairfield and its surrounding communities home, and have created some of their best work here.

These ten musicians represent a wide range of musical styles, from classical, musical theatre, and jazz to rock and disco. Some have made their mark as performers, while others were composers, songwriters, and producers.

The exhibit will open January 16th with a reception and roundtable discussion hosted by some of the region’s most talented performers, including: Chris Frantz, drummer for the Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, guitarist and Latin Pop icon Jose Feliciano, funk/disco legend and producer Nile Rodgers, among others.

Throughout the exhibition, explore the history of this region’s rich musical heritage through lectures, performances, and events presented with our community partner Fairfield Theatre Company.
