Tickets still available for electronic music concert at Toledo Museum of Art
The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) welcomes electronic producer Jlin to a one-of-a-kind performance in the Museum’s GlasSalon Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020. Jerrilynn Patton, known as Jlin, is one of the most prominent women producers working today.
With fewer than 200 tickets available to the concert, TMA encourages fans of electronic music to invite their friends and families to experience the genre in the beautiful and non-intimidating environment of the GlasSalon.
Jlin grew up in the steel manufacturing town of Gary, Indiana, just 20 miles from downtown Chicago. Her early fame came in the genre of footwork, a high-tempo house/club dance style born in Chicago clubs.
“Jlin brings her life experiences, from her days as a steel worker to her close relationship with her family, into her immersive performances,” said Scott Boberg, TMA manager of programs and audience engagement. “Her charm and openness with the audience will make this a wonderful experience in an intimate setting. The Museum is thrilled to offer its visitors the chance to experience the work of an important voice in the electronic musical landscape.”
She began her career using music samples to construct her tracks, but today her compositions are built of entirely original sounds that Jlin herself creates. She makes a practice of discovering new styles and taking on new projects that result in sounds and scores unlike any she’s created before. For example, recent projects include an original score for British choreographer Wayne McGregor’s group-performance piece Autobiography, and a commission for the Kronos Quartet.
Tickets are $12 for Museum members, $15 for nonmembers and $10 for students and military. Tickets are available at tickets.toledomuseum.org.
