‘Breakthrough’ Screening & Concert by Quinton Morris

Past event
Free w/RSVP

Friday, October 16, 2015 (PDT) @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Quinton Morris

Don’t miss the premiere and live concert by renowned violinist, Dr. Quinton Morris.

In celebration of the 270th anniversary of the birth of Joseph Boulogne (better known as the Chevalier de Saint-Georges), Morris tells a modernized story of the celebrated athlete, concert violinist and composer through his performance of Saint-Georges’s Sonata No. 3 in G minor and his acting debut as the historical violinist in a new film capturing key aspects of musician’s life.

Saint-Georges meets Queen Marie-Antoinette, who invites him to Versailles to perform with her at her estate. He composes the G minor sonata along with two other sonatas that they perform together in the celebrated venue. Morris presents Saint-Georges’s debonair personality through the violinist’s high-profile career, his romantic relationships with various women, and the numerous social setbacks he faced as an African-French musician.

This collaborative, innovative project is an introduction to Saint-Georges, a musician of African origin who against all odds, rose to become one of the most prolific and forgotten figures of the 18th century.
