Lots and lots of March activity on tap, not the least of which is the NYCC concert of March 9 at the Thalia Symphony Space, 7:30pm. Here follows several more concerts to add to your calendar.
GAYTHER MYERS has a great offer for the NYCC. He writes, “Our entire group and guests are being offered complimentary tickets (up to 100 tickets) to the University of Louisville Symphony Orchestra and Wind
Ensemble concert at Carnegie Hall on March 8, at 8 pm. The concert features works by Lutoslawski, Aaron Jay Kernis, Joan Tower, John Corigliano, Krzysztof Penderecki and Takemitsu. The Corigliano will be a world premiere. Also Paul York will play the Cello concerto of Karel Husa. Members should indicate their interest to me, and the box office will hold the tickets for them
RICHARD BROOKS will have three performances in March.
March 1, 11:30 am at Nassau Community College, Circular Motions for flute, clarinet and piano
March 17, 8 pm, St. Peter’s Church, Citicorp Center, My Soul’s Satisfaction ofr SATB and piano by the Gregg Smith Singers
March 21, 8 pm, Austrian Cultural Forum, 11 East 52nd Street, pianist Peter Vinograde will present a recital featuring Bach’s Goldberg Variations and my Fantasy-Impromptu.
JOHN EATON writes: “There’s a very interesting concert on March 3rd and 4th at 8PM, produced by the American Modern Ensemble, at the Tenri Cultural Center, 43A West 13th St. (between 5th and 6th Ave.s and easily accessible from the A, C, E, 1, 2, & 3 trains at 14th St.). It’s called Musical Mavericks and features a whole series of innovators on their instruments: Robert Dick, flute; Stuart Dempster, trombone; Michael Lowenstern, bass clarinet; Sean McClowry, double bass; Robert Paterson, marimba; Todd Reynolds, violin; William O. Smith, clarinet; and Pamela Z, voice. I’ve been asked to play my Microtonal Fantasy for two pianos tuned a quarter of a tone apart, which many members of the NYCC heard me perform at my house. Hope you can come to this innovative concert.”
Those of us who visited John last year are not likely to soon forget his performance. If you missed it (or would like to hear again), here’s your chance!
STEVEN EBEL, the composer/tenor who visited us at the February 18 salon, wants us to know about New Music New York’s second concert of the season: AMERICANS IN PARIS, which will present two performances.
