Cost: Free

Age limit: All ages

Description: <p>Saxophonist and UC San Diego Professor of Music David Borgo will perform his new album <em>The Suite of Uncommon Sorrows </em>at the Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theatre. He describes the projects as &quot;an eleven-part suite of original music composed in response to the tumultuous events of 2020, including the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, the growing Black Lives Matter movement, and the debilitating polarization of U.S. politics that made it impossible to address either of these adequately. Each movement explores a different ‘uncommon sorrow,’ such as kuebiko (a state of moral exhaustion inspired by acts of horror in the news, which forces you to revise your image of what can happen in this world), kenopsia (the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that&rsquo;s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet), chrysalism (an amniotic-like tranquility while a storm rages outside), zenosyne (the sense that time keeps going faster), and p&acirc;ro (the feeling that no matter what you do it will always be inadequate).&quot; Borgo will perform with Tobin Chodos (piano and keyboard), Mackenzie Leighton (acoustic and electric bass), Mark Ferber (drums), and guest Peter Sprague on electric guitar.</p>
