Reception to follow the concert!
In all the excitement of preparation for our first concert of the year, let’s not forget that our December Salon is this Sunday, December 10… And as is fast becoming a highlight tradition of the NYCC’s year, we again thank JOSEPH AND LINDA PEHRSON for agreeing to host our annual holiday bash. In the spirit of keeping things festive, *live* music and performance is strongly encouraged (although a CD player is on hand if needed). We’ll be getting started at 3pm (not 2pm, as in prior meetings), at 484 West 43 Apartment #35 (10th Avenue, Manhattan Plaza). The most frequently asked question: “What should I bring?” Answer? From Joe himself: “We ask that people not bring anything. We will have everything necessary.” Let’s all get together and celebrate our first concert of the year and the coming holidays.
While you’ve got your calendar out, our next two salons will be January 21 and February 18, again at the Ellington Room, and again at 2pm. More to follow as we get closer to these dates. Thanks to GENE MCBRIDE for making the arrangements.
Apologies to OREN FADER for getting this out so late, but it sounds so interesting! He’ll be playing a new electric guitar concerto with the Sarah Lawrence College Orchestra, Martin Goldray, conductor. The piece, Concerto for Electric Guitar and Orchestra, is written by John Yannelli and is receiving its premiere tonight, Tuesday, December 5th, 8 pm at Reisinger Hall, Sarah Lawrence College, 1 Mead Way in Bronxville. This is a free concert.
A correction from JENNIFER GRIFFITH. On Wednesday (Dec 6th), she will be playing piano with the CUNY Graduate Center Contemporary Music Ensemble, performing the new piece “Tania,” a tribute to composer Tania León — The concert is at 8pm (and not 7:30 as previously announced.) Visit www.jennifergriffith.com for more details about this piece and the performance. Admission is free.
