Nearly 40 million YouTube hits have turned the inspired lunacy of musicians Igudesman & Joo into an Internet and international sensation.

Imagine the anarchy of South Park and the Marx Brothers mashed up with the musical virtuosity of pianist Lang Lang and violinist Nigel Kennedy. If Trey Parker and Matt Stone played the violin and piano, if Penn and Teller performed music instead of magic and if Seth Macfarlane had a twin, they would be the brilliantly outrageous Igudesman & Joo. That doesn’t come close to describing the duo gifted with astonishing musical and comic talents who use pop culture, comedy, music and slapstick to shred the classics for fun.

When Igudesman And Joo perform with a symphony orchestra, musical nightmares take on epic proportions! On top of a few priceless adaptions from Igudesman And Joo’s duo-show “A Little Nightmare Music”, Igudesman and Joo: "BIG Nightmare Music" (Feb 27) boasts uproarious sketches tailor-made for a symphony orchestra. Don’t miss this exciting program where comedy meets music, guaranteed to make you "scream" with delight.
