The Up Close and Personal with the PSO @ Jimmy’s Chamber Music Series explores the borderlands between jazz and classical music.. Paired with fine food including appetizer, dinner and dessert, this six-concert series promises chamber music like you’ve never experienced it before. Each performance will feature ensembles of Portsmouth Symphony musicians who will showcase the richness, flexibility, and often surprising range of the classical chamber music repertoire in Jimmy’s century-old, spectacularly restored, state-of-the-art club. The winter blues have never sounded more beautiful. Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” arranged for piano quartet, blends jazz and classical music and is the centerpiece of this concert. Performed by Boston-based pianist Tianhong Yang on Jimmy’s resident Steinway piano, this concert is guaranteed to light up a dark winter evening.
