In conjunction with the UMMA exhibition Moving Image: Performance, Andrew Bishop, Associate Professor of Jazz and Contemporary Improvisations, leads a live chamber jazz ensemble with featured vocalists through the eclectic musical world of the 1964 film The Umbrellas of Cherbourg with music by Michel Legrand. Unique for it’s fusing of opera and jazz, the music of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg features wonderful melodic inventiveness with harmonic and colorful orchestration.
