New Riff on Old Forms

concert:nova’s Adventure Series opens with New Riffs on Old Forms. This collaboration with Northern Kentucky landmarks Hotel Covington and New Riff Distillery explores how the new is often inspired by the old.

Listen with new ears to Mozart’s indisputably classic Eb Major Serenade featuring musicians of the Cincinnati Symphony and Dayton Philharmonic Orchestras. Watch a cocktail demonstration and learn how Harbison’s Woodwind Quintet (1965) respects the same structure used in the Mozart Serenade (1781). Learn about the history behind the Hotel Covington building, sip on two cocktails made by their expert mixologist featuring New Riff whiskey and ask yourself which one is the new riff on an old favorite as Jay Erisman, co-founder of New Riff Distillery, describes how their distilling process is inspired by the Bottled in Bond act of 1897. 

Scheper Room, Hotel Covington, Nov 15, 6-7:30pm, $20 admission, two complimentary cocktails
