I wanted to give you all a heads-up for an upcoming performance featuring the Quartet of Happiness! Check the details out below:
Join the Quartet of Happiness on Friday, April 27th and be a part of their next major project! The Quartet will be joined by the QOH Big Band to produce a night of theatrical jazz and family fun at the Cambridge YMCA Theater at 7pm. The show will be professionally recorded and filmed for a live DVD to be released later in 2012. Capping off the night will be a special performance by Kelly Roberge’s “All of Us” solo quartet.
Quartet of Happiness takes modern jazz and infuses it with a hefty dose of cheekiness and irreverent humor, wrapping it all up in the sort of theatrics reminiscent of Blue Man Group. The group has made it its mission to take jazz out of the ivory tower and make it accessible to a wide-ranging audience. Playing games, wearing costumes, and engaging the audience with their antics, the Quartet of Happiness performances are at times reminiscent of a cross between an improv comedy show and a theater of the bizarre. It’s part jazz, part performance art, and all of it the child of insane wit.
