OPEK Plays the Music of Sun Ra

Mostly Sun Ra

May 31, 2013

The enigmatic and mysterious musician Sun Ra drew inspiration from ancient Egyptian cultures, spiritualism, and Afro-American history to create a repertoire encompasses the entire history of American jazz from ragtime to Free.  Though his popularity peaked in the 1960s, his influence as an arranger and bandleader are still felt today.

OPEK, Pittsburgh’s most innovative collective of creative improvising musicians, perform Sun Ra’s music — including several unrecorded  compositions — with their own unique musical stamp, just as it was intended to be played.

Tickets are $12 advance; $16 at door.
