Music & Performance

Ann Magnuson

Thursday Jun 14, 2007 8:00PM This is a past program
Pioneering a brand of performance art that blends alternative cabaret, pop, surrealism, and social satire, Ann Magnuson presents a multi-media concert of song and spoken word featuring selections from her latest CD, Pretty Songs & Ugly Stories. The Los Angeles Times says, “Ann Magnuson wears irony well. She makes it sparkle and shimmer—seductively, seditiously.” Accompanied by her producer and musical collaborator Kristian Hoffman on grand piano, and featuring Joe Berardi (percussion) Jonathan Lea (guitar), and Alexander Rannie (harp), with video designed by Matthew Amato
