Special Events

Open Classical produces high entertainment original theater style special events combining classical artistry with innovative concepts, comedy, costumes, and original scripts.


Classically Jazzed

Classical music is reimagined as jazz. With inspiration derived from recordings made by the great historical violinist Eddie South, compositions from Bach, Vivaldi and others retain their original forms and validity, yet are transformed into contemporary sounding works that cross genres without losing quality.


Bach Suites and Two Feet Beats

A collaboration between Mark Landson and tap dancer and choreographer Katelyn Harris. The timeless and versatile suites by JS Bach for solo cello are played on viola and given an exciting twist by added driving counter rhythms of a virtuoso tap dancer.


The Bach And Wing

A full and entertaining evening of Classical Music, Tap Dance and Comedy. Another innovative collaboration with choreographer Katelyn Harris of Rhythmic Souls Tap Ensemble, this time with a full cast of ddancers and multiple live instrumentalists.


Night of the Living Dead Composers

Decomposing Beethoven, Brahms and Mozart are among the characters appearing in a night that brings music to life.


The True (not exactly true) Story of Thanksgiving

The Pilgrims’ Thanksgiving story is hilariously mangled by changing the words to popular classical music masterpieces.


Music Moves

An Open Classical led collaboration with area dance companies (ballet, tango, modern and tap). The 2013 event in Klyde Warren Park was attended by 1500-2000 people.
