Monday, Oct 10, 7pm  -  A performance lecture  

by avant garde composer and pianist, George Flynn
At Chopin Theatre, 1543 W. Division, Chicago

"Music with a Conscience  
the Protest Music of George Flynn" 

A performance lecture by avant garde composer and pianist, George Flynn with special guest,  Joanna Wernette, mezzo soprano.  George Flynn has composed over 150 works in all media, including six hours of piano solo music, and has recorded for Turnabout, ATCO, Finnadar, Wounded Bird, and Southport records. Flynn's 50-minute piano solo Pieces of Night was performed at Tanglewood this summer.    

This evening of live performance, recorded music, and discussion with the audience is a benefit to raise funds to produce a film of the April 11th event, "On the Publication of BAsics, a Celebration of Revolution and the Vision of a New World." A reception will follow
The film is of the April 11, 2011 celebration in New York City where hundreds of people of diverse ages, backgrounds, and political perspectives came together in one place for an evening of jazz, funk, soul, rock, theater, dance, poetry, visual arts commentary, and film. All of it aching for, giving voice to, and infused with the possibility of a radically different world than the maddening planet we live on now. All of it unleashed by-and cohered around-the occasion of the publication of BAsics, a comprehensive yet succinct new  book of quotations and short essays by Bob Avakian, the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.

 "Music with a Conscience" is being co-sponsored by the Chopin Theatre and Revolution Books.
