  • Emily Bear Jazz Trio

    Saturday, November 1, 2014 - 7:00 P.M. - Sedona Performing Arts Center

    In his illustrious career, Quincy Jones had seen it all – or so he may have thought before he came across Emily Bear. Only 13 years old, Emily is one of the most astonishing musical talents of our time – composing, orchestrating, and performing in a bewilderingly diverse collection of styles. Some of her huge talent is on display in the appropriately-named album Diversity, her first album for Concord Records/Quest Records, which Jones produced.

    The naïve soldier Don José loses all when he is seduced by the fiery gypsy Carmen who dumps him for the glamorous toreador Escamillo with tragic consequences.

    "The show caught fire, mainly on the strength of Ms. Rachvelishvili's vocal power and compelling stage presence, and Mr. Eyre's sure sense of dramatic pacing took hold. With her smoldering, earthy sexuality she is ideal for the role, managing to seem untamed, almost unhinged at times, yet also coolly calculating." — The New York Times
