Comedy Concerto to be performed by Macao Orchestra and American artistic Dan Kamin

Dan Kamin’s Comedy Concertos, which combine comedy with classical music, have become popular in the worldwide symphonies.

The Macao Orchestra, under the auspices of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, will cooperate with the famous American artist Dan Kamin to present Journey into the World of Music – The Lost Elephant, a Comedy Concert, which will be conducted by Francis Kan, at the Macao Cultural Centre Grand Auditorium on 6 December, Sunday, at 3:00 pm. In the virtual music jungle, Dan Kamin will use amazing movement skills together with simple props representing each animal, to have a thrilling show with kid audience. This is also a golden opportunity to introduce classical music to them. Dan Kamin created a series of physical comedy action in Benny and Joon and conducted training for Robert Downey, Jr. in Chaplin, who was awarded with Oscar nomination. Kamin’s Comedy Concertos, which combine comedy with classical music, have become popular in the worldwide symphonies. In addition to The Lost Elephant, his programmes include Charlie Chaplin at the Symphony, The Classical Clown, The Horrible History of Music, The Haunted Orchestra, and Stop the Music!. Asian orchestras such as those symphonies in Singapore, Shanghai, Hangzho and Malaysia invited Kamin to have performance several times. In this concert, Kamin plays as a zookeeper to search for the missing elephant. Summoned by the extraordinary music played by the Macao Orchestra like Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, Rossini’s William Tell Overture and Camille Saint-Saens’ Swan, he has wonderful interaction with different animals in the jungle. Eventually, the missing elephant is drawn forth under the music. With the perfect combination of comedy and classical music, the audience can experience a wonderful journey.
