The Jack London State Historical Park presents a unique musical performance with pianist and composer Ron Fein on Friday, Nov. 29, when he will create a concert around the writings of Jack London. Fein, renowned composer, performer and installation artist, designs the concert using London’s wife Charmian’s historic Steinway piano. Fein extracts profound poetic language from London’s prose, infusing it into a powerful extemporized setting – a one of a kind performance – physically and emotionally bringing Jack London’s artistry to life. Fein has dedicated most of his life to music, as composer, music critic, performer and director emeritus of the Washington Composers’ Forum in Seattle. Fein’s work in composition includes electronic, orchestral, chamber and improvisational music. The night kicks off at 6 p.m. For tickets and more info, point your browser to jacklondonpark.com/ron-fein.html
