David Amram 

When: Thu., April 4, 2 p.m. 2013

Various Venues—You may not have heard of David Amram, but you've heard his work. Now in his ninth decade, the French horn player, composer and poet is in town to be feted for four days of events in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Amram's résumé includes stints playing with jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Mingus and Miles Davis, scoring the Cold War film landmark The Manchurian Candidate and the Robert Frank beat classic Pull My Daisy, performing with Jack Kerouac and collaborating on an opera with Joseph Papp. Monday at 7 p.m., a documentary titled David Amram: The First 80 Years is screened for free in Room 305 of UNC's Dey Hall. Tuesday at 7 p.m., the Varsity screens a double feature of Pull My Daisy and The Manchurian Candidate ($4, free for students). Wednesday, April 3, the Ackland Art Museum hosts a free 5 p.m. reception with the guest of honor as a precursor to a public conversation with Amram in the University Room of UNC's Hyde Hall from 5:45–7:15 p.m.; both events are free. Finally, on Thursday, April 4, The ArtsCenter in Carrboro presents a 7 p.m. performance by Amram with former Lionel Hampton singer Clare Bathé and local poets David Need and Joseph Donahue ($12–$20). iah.unc.edu, varsityonfranklin.com, artscenterlive.org.David Fellerath
