Classical Laughter With Low & Lower

Classical Laughter With Low & Lower

9:23am Feb 03, 2016

Low & Lower is Winston-Salem Symphony cellist Brooks Whitehouse and bassist Paul Sharpe. They combine their virtuosity with a sense of humor, a touch of theatre and a willingness to try, well, just about anything. Along the way they’ve created, inspired and commissioned several new works. Brooks and Paul spoke with David Ford Live in Studio A, but they began with a performance of their original parody “A Modern Music Genius,” based on the patter song “A Modern Major General” from Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance. 

They’ll premiere their latest musical parody: “All About That Bass” taking Meghan Trainor’s hit literally on February 6th.  And there’ll be other premieres as well during their concert Low & Lower “The Musical” on Saturday, February 6th in Freedman Theatre on the UNC School of the Arts campus.
