The Asphalt Orchestra is no ordinary marching band. Instead of fight songs, shrill renditions of
Sousa, and militaristic uniforms and dance routines, this group’s music and choreography is unpredictable and even jazzy! Join the 12-piece group as they fire up the Alden Theatre with music by Frank Zappa, David Byrne, Björk, and many more. Don’t miss out on this innovative evening!
And if you’re in the mood for a day at the museums, visit Color, Line, Light: French Drawings, Watercolors, and Pastels from Delacroix to Signac at the National Gallery of Art. Check out what our critics have to say about it! Watch the video here!
