Max Berlin: In Media Res
In both the good and bad way--Max Berlin is all over the place. Whether it's his work as Music Director for the Empire Film and Media Ensemble, or as an Eastman pianist, composer, film scorer, and singer-songwriter, Max has always been in the middle of things. In Medias Res translates from Latin to English as "in the middle things," as Max gears up for his Eastman graduation in May and his move to Los Angeles on the horizon. This concert, per its title, features compositions for small jazz ensemble that strike a middle between musical styles and genres--showcasing many of Max's interests as a passionate and ever-curious musician. Max has been exceptionally grateful to have been a part of the Rochester artistic and musical community throughout his college experience. Join him and his musical friends for an exciting evening and a bittersweet goodbye.
