Shakespeare and Jazz? If anyone can pull this combo off, it has to be the folks at WVC. The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat is proud to present a WVC production – ‘If Music Be The Food of Love: Jazz On’.
The WVC Malaysian Jazz Ensemble is riding high after their sold out Waiting for the Day concert last year which racked up ten BOH Cameronian Arts Awards nominations. With their fifth album, Do Not Gently, fresh out of the oven, they are ready to wow their fans with yet another exciting treat.
This time round, WVC will be presenting their modern interpretation of Shakespeare. Besides original compositions specially baked for the show as well as improvisations, there will also be rearrangements of Duke Ellington’s Such Sweet Thunder Suite and more.
