In Ayrshire, Scotland in 1801, a group of friends gathered to honor the memory of their beloved friend and poet, Robert Burns through a traditional meal and recitation of his poetry. Succeeding generations since then have held a Burns Dinner every January to immortalize Robert Burns and Scottish heritage. The Scottish St. Andrew Society of Greater St. Louis, dedicated to preserving Scottish culture in Missouri through education and community work, holds its own annual Burns Dinner for the Scottish-American community. The evening is the epitome of Scottish culture with bagpipers, Highland dancing, attendees donning their tartans, and learning what Burns and his poetry means to our ancestry. The event will take place on January 20th, 2018 at the Frontenac Hilton on Lindbergh Blvd. The room opens at 5:45 with a social, cocktail hour with dinner commencing promptly at 7:00 pm. Bagpipers from the St. Louis Caledonian Pipe Band and Highland Dancers provide the wonderful music and entertainment, interspersed with toasts and dedications recognizing the contributions of Scottish-Americans. Representatives from Scottish organizations like SPAE, Drones Club, and the St. Louis Scottish Games join to share in promoting and preserving the history of Scots, their ancestry, and the impact of Scots right here in St. Louis. The evening climaxes with a scholar honoring Burns with a special message, the Immortal Memory.

In Physical exaggerations in controlled dream space – a new performative sound installation designed specifically for projects+gallery – Kevin Harris attempts to create a synthetic physical environment where approximations of matter can be achieved. By using exaggerated notions of mass, inertia and gravity, the piece uses sound to simulate invisible physical bodies accelerated within a space.Describing the inspiration for this work, Harris writes: "The conceptual origins of the piece are a series of reoccurring dreams I had as a child. In these dreams, I would stand alone surrounded in all directions by infinite black space. When I would move, I could feel soft, invisible objects moving through me. The faster I moved, the heavier these soft objects appeared. If I ran, the objects would completely encompass my body until they regulated and even controlled my movement.The technical execution utilizes a theoretical concept that selects various degrees of phase angles found in high speed oscillations and creates equivalent physical shapes to beexpressed within a room of specific dimensions. The room resonances are simulated by the mathematical process of convolution and combined with various oscillations to accomplish movement, depth, and position of the invisible objects."About the artist:Kevin Harris (b.1975, Oklahoma City) is a multimedia artist, curator and electrical engineer whose practice seeks to create communal conditions by which to explore experimental psychology and fictitious emotions. His most recent work uses multi-channel audio and video synthesis to present complex sensory environments and has been featured at theContemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Expo Chicago, the Luminary (STL) and the Charlotte Street Foundation (KC), among many other regional and national venues. Harris holds a BA in Music from the University of Oklahoma and an MFA in Sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; he lives and works in Saint Louis.
By any standard, jazz or otherwise, it is moving, mighty music." - Rolling Stone
After 17 years together, and a decade-long tradition with Jazz St. Louis, The Bad Plus announced a major change in the bands infrastructure last spring. Longtime pianist Ethan Iverson will be leaving the group, with Philadelphia native Orrin Evans joining the band in 2018. With Iversons final engagement set for December 2017, bassist Reid Anderson and drummer David King will debut the NEW version of The Bad Plus, with Evans, at the Bistro! With the new lineup, the band continues their long-standing tradition of being a leaderless trio with a committed belief in what theyve dubbed avant-garde populism the idea that serious music can be as engaging and accessible as it is forward-thinking and provocative.
Style: modern jazz
