In a musical spectacular, Turning Point Ensemble and arguably Canada’s boldest composer, John Oswald, pay tribute to two masters – Frank Zappa, the man, the myth and the moustache, and Edgard Varèse, one of the twentieth century’s great composers. Turning Point Ensemble will expand to 30 instruments to bring Zappa’s music to the PuSh Festival.

The concert will include Varèse’s rarely performed 1925 composition Intégrales for winds and percussion, and Zappa compositions from the Yellow Shark project, “Dog Breath Variations/Uncle Meat, Be-Bop Tango, Get Whitey, Outrage at Valdez, The Girl in the Magnesium Dress and G-Spot Tornado with new choreography by Rob Kitsos.
