Concert: War of the Worlds.80

October 28, 2018, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Event Navigation

Members of the Einstein Alley Musician’s Collaborative blend spoken word, live music and an assortment of sound, theatrical and lighting effects to bring the story of the broadcast of “War of the Worlds.” The original radio script will be adapted into a series of vignettes in between which musicians will perform a piece which reflects the mood of the story. Diverse genres – jazz, bluegrass, grunge, gospel, classical, hip-hop and electronica – will be used to create an organic soundscape of mystery, terror and rebirth.

This event is free and tickets are suggested. Tickets can be picked up, two per person, on a first-come-first-served basis, at the Welcome Desk starting Monday, Oct. 22. Empty seats will be filled starting at 2:50 p.m.

The War of the Worlds series includes multiple programs marking the 80th anniversary of the broadcast. Additional events include:

10/4 Film Screening: “War of the Worlds”

10/10 Raconteur Radio: “War of the Worlds”

10/18 Author Talk: “Broadcast Hysteria: Orson Welles’s ‘War of the Worlds’ and the Art of Fake News”
