Alpin Hong & Crushed Out
Rock & Roll vs. Classical Showdown

Add to your calendar
Date: March 6, 7:30 pm
Location: Center for the Arts Crested Butte
Details: It's a classical music versus rock-n-roll showdown.

Classical pianist Alpin Hong plays technical sonatas like 300 year old rock and roll hits. He grabs a single note and thrusts it into hyperdrive. He is fluid. Impassioned. Tender. Electric. Poetic. Formally trained as a Master at the Julliard School of Music, Hong flaunts technical prowess on even the most strenuous pieces.

Watch Alpin join forces with the Crested Butte Community School Band and battle note for note with Crushed Out, an explosive hit of surf-garage momentum and rock and roll from Brooklyn, New York consisting of Frank Hoier on guitar and vocals and Moselle Spiller on drums. Formally known as Boom Chick, Crushed Out is pure guitar-drum adrenalin rush - plenty of fuzz, tremolo, riffs, slide and Black Sabbath power chords. Learn more about Crushed Out.

Student Tickets Available
WSCU students must present valid school ID when picking up tickets. If a valid ID is not presented, you will be required to cover the difference to a full price ticket.

Read more about Alpin, who has been to Crested Butte for a few years now and returns for his love of our community and our programs.
