If you've watched a Ken Burns documentary you've probably heard the music of pianist Jacqueline Schwab. A performer of classical, folk and contemporary music, Schwab has scored Burns' films including Civil War, Baseball and The National Parks: America's Best Idea. She's currently at work on music for Burns' upcoming Dust Bowl — but she's taking a break to play a benefit for the the Blue Ridge Orchestra. Members of BRO join her for the Thursday, March 29 concert at The Altamont Theatre. 7:30 p.m., $15 in advance, $20 at the door, or $40 for table seating. http://blueridgeorchestra.org.
