The Jeffery Meyer conducts the ASU Chamber Orchestra as they embark on a musical exploration of Frankenstein themes as part of the ASU Frankenstein Bicentennial Project. Concerts at ASU Gammage and the Mesa Arts Center present HK Gruber’s “Frankenstein!!” featuring a fantastical protagonist and an ensemble that blurs the lines between classical and popular music. The second half of the concert presents the 1931 black and white film “Frankenstein” with Shapiro’s film score performed live. Guests are invited to arrive an hour before each concert to participate in Frankenstein-related activities and explore the many facets of the Frankenstein story through innovative projects and perspectives from across the disciplines.
