Looking to get out of the house for events during the dreary winter months? Join Alex Prizgintas for a special cello concerts on March 22nd at 6:00 PM. His popular “Salute to Broadway” program will be featured by the Town of Esopus Library in Port Ewen, NY. Catch the Great White Way as Alex shares “My Favorite Things” that will make you want to (I could have) “Danced All Night” accompanied by “The Music of the Night.” With his cello amplified, his sounds altered through guitar pedals, and choruses multiplied through a looping station, you’ll be treated to a chorus of sounds unique by any standard by a solo performer. Other Broadway favorites range from “Tommy” from The Who and Kern/Hammerstein’s classic “Ol’ Man River.”
Classically trained, he employs non-classical tools like distortion, delay, and the iconic “wah-wah” guitar pedals symbolic of 1960s Rock n’ Roll bands–all in conjunction with a looping station. Equally comfortable with intimate and stadium settings, Alex is able to craft his own wall-of-sound through his 1,000 watt amp. Accompanied with a narration that reveal some of the back stories of baroque, jazz, folk, and Rock n’ Roll classics, he immerses his audience in a journey through musical history.
