The Hanging of Pinocchio and Other Strange Arrangements

Zingg Recital Hall, CSU Chico, 400 West First Street, Chico, CA

The Department of Music and Theatre presents the premiere of The Hanging Of Pinocchio, a new musical work composed by Music and Theatre faculty member David Dvorin. Inspired by the original telling of Carlos Collodi’s 19th century masterpiece of children’s fiction, the work is a rumination on the perplexity of boyhood behavior and societal expectations. Joining David on guitar and electronics will be a top-notch ensemble of instrumental soloists from around Northern California, including Matej Seda (violin), Randy McKean (clarinets), and Clifford Childers (trombone/bass trumpet/harmonica).
