Screening of Inside the Perfect Circle: The Odyssey of Joel Thome

About this Event

Joel Thome is an internationally acclaimed composer and conductor of classical and contemporary orchestral music. He has conducted orchestras all over the world. This award-winning documentary provides a personal view of his career including his collaborations with Frank Zappa, guitarist Steve Vai and Pablo Picasso furthering modern music.

Joel won a Grammy 1994 for Zappa’s Universe as best rock instrumental. For many years, he was head of music at Carnegie Mellon University and SUNY Purchase.

After a debilitating stroke and long recovery, he returned to the stage with his Mandala Scores in 2009. Most recently his work, JARDIN D’ENFANTS ENCHANTEE (a meditation on world peace as heard through the eyes and ears of children) had its world premiere in Tokyo in 2019. Joel is a long-time resident of Waterside.

Following the documentary, Joel will be present for Q&A.
