Cincinnati Contemporary Jazz Orchestra Sherlock Holmes Suite
March 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Cincinnati Contemporary Jazz Orchestra presents The Sound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes Suite!
It’s elementary, my dear Watson. You simply must partake in this evening of mystery and intrigue at The Redmoor presented by the Cincinnati Contemporary Jazz Orchestra. The Redmoor is located in the heart of picturesque Mt. Lookout Square.
Tickets for this show are $20 for adults and $10 for children and can be purchased online.
About The Sound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes Suite
The CCJO will welcome London’s own Alan Barnes as the evening’s composer, lead soloist and narrator whom the Guardian noted “could be a comedian, if jazz ever fails him.” This musical/literary performance will explore the characters, atmosphere and stories of Sherlock Holmes by means of readings, commentary and a set of Alan’s brilliant original jazz compositions. Alan is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist whose range and brilliance have made him a “first call” for studio and live work since his arrival on the scene more than 30 years ago.
About The Redmoor
The Mt. Lookout property where the Redmoor stands was purchased by Frank Boesch as a sheep farm in 1901 and has remained in the family since that time. Mr. Boesch later partnered with Hollywood showman Jerry Jackson, who had the vision to open an avant-garde theater modeled after those he’d seen in California. In 1938, the state-of-the-art theater held its premiere, with the first tickets being sold by 10-year-old Frances Faber, the building’s current owner. Tickets remained in high demand, with a queue often extending down the length of Mt. Lookout Square, and continued to feature films within an exquisite Art Deco setting for many decades.
After the advent of video and audio tapes, a lesser demand for theater inspired a new idea for the venue: an upscale steakhouse. Later the concepts of theater and dining merged in the building’s next incarnation as Cinema Grille. Recognizing the need for a distinctive setting for events that are far from ordinary, Cincinnati interior designer David Millet reinvented the building’s identity as The Redmoor — Cincinnati’s premier event house.
