Keith Lay is proving to be our area’s most inventive composer. Last year, he put on one of the most interesting public pieces of symphonic art to hit Lake Eola Park with “Distance Music,” a suite that had the audience walk around the lake to experience how notes blasted from brass ensembles and train horns sounded different based on where in the park one’s ear happened to be. He teams up with Cirque du Soleil music director Benoit Glazer tonight for a piece billed as an in-the-flesh cartoon written for a brass trio and three mimes. Glazer, Juan Berrios and Joey Vascik pull double duty on horns and pantomime in a “brass march in vaudeville style” as composer Lay continues to play with form and presentation. We can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.

    Keith Lay is a great composer. I look forward to meeting him at Full Sail when I get my degree from Full Sail University.
