Atlanta Symphony Orchestra - Carnegie Hall
October 27, 2012 -

Copland's stirring tribute to rural America and the bullish spirit of its settlers kicks off the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra's only New York appearance this season. Two powerful works for chorus and soloists follow: Bernstein's tuneful Chichester Psalms, which echo the rhythmic freshness of West Side Story, and Walton's oratorio about the fall of a Babylonian king. There's no one better to lead all this than Robert Spano, who captures the drama in everything he conducts.

William Christie Conducts Juilliard415 - The Juilliard School, Alice Tully Hall
October 27, 2012 - New York

HANDEL Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno, HWV 46a (The Triumph of Time and Truth)

Legendary early music specialist William Christie's annual residency culminates in a concert with Juilliard singers and members of his Parisian ensemble Les Arts Florissants alongside Juilliard415. Oboist Pier-Luigi Fabretti and harpsichordist Beatrice Martin from Mr. Christie's ensemble will lead coachings and sectionals. Composed over a span of half a century, Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno is both the first and one of the last works of Handel's oratorio repertoire. Composed in 1707, the first installment, HWV 46a, contains the aria "Lascia la spina"-the well-recognized tune the composer borrowed from himself in 1711 for the famous aria "Lascia ch'io pianga" from his opera Rinaldo.

ZEBRA - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
October 27, 2012 - New York

One of the most exciting musical events of the '80s was the breakout success of Zebra, as they rose from regional popularity to national recognition. Their 1983 self-titled debut sounded more like an experienced mid-career production than a first effort. Generating a groundswell of media and popular support, the LP became one of rock radio's most-played albums and remained on the national charts for eight months. Such stand-out tracks as "Who's Behind the Door?" (which went gold) and "Tell Me What You Want" became and have remained video as well as audio favorites. This first release proved to be the fastest-selling rock album in the history of Atlantic Records.

'Youth in Music Project' with Mark O'Connor and the Noel Pointer Foundation - Merkin Concert Hall
October 27, 2012 - New York

On Saturday, October 27th at 8pm, the Noel Pointer Foundation, in collaboration with the Ars Viva Chamber Orchestra, will bring a unique program to the stage of Merkin Concert Hall titled “The Youth in Music Project.” This innovative performance will feature the Foundation’s Youth Orchestra and Advanced Guitar Ensemble in a side-by-side collaboration with the Ars Viva Chamber Orchestra (Tarrytown Music Hall’s orchestra-in-residence) under the direction of its Music Director Dr. Jesse Henkensiefken. The concert’s featured soloist is acclaimed American violinist and composer Mark O’Connor. All proceeds and donations help fund the Noel Pointer Foundation.

The Noel Pointer Foundation has been a revolutionary force in musical education for low-income families within the five boroughs of New York City, since its inception as a non-profit organization in 1995. The only organization of its kind, the Foundation has been working relentlessly with public schools, in addition to creating its own facilities in the heart of Brooklyn that is the Noel Pointer Music School, promoting its mission to “dramatically enrich children's musical, cultural and academic experience, infusing them with a positive sense of who they are and a boundless sense of what they can become.”

The soloist for the night is the internationally celebrated icon of American music – violinist and composer Mark O’Connor. Grammy-award winner, Mr. O’Connor is renowned for a sound and style that is deeply and uniquely his, as poignantly described by the Los Angeles Times: “[Mark O’Connor has] crossed over so many boundaries, that his style is purely personal." Mr. O’Connor’s involvement with the project goes beyond the performance – he will be giving a 2-hour master-class to the NPF’s advanced string students the day of the concert at the Brooklyn Conservatory Concert Hall. The All-American program will feature the string version of Aaron Copland’s Howdown from “Rodeo” and Marc O’Connor’s Strings & Threads, American Seasons and Elevations.

SPIRITS, NATURE AND HEAVEN - Symphony Space
October 27, 2012 - New York City

THE KTPAA 18TH ANNUAL CONCERT 2012

"SPIRITS, NATURE AND HEAVEN" “?????, ?????”

Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 8:00PM Symphony Space (2537 Broadway at 95th Street, New York, NY 10025)

Featuring Exceptional Korean Performing Artists, NEA National Heritage Fellow Sue Yeon Park Jang Jae Hyo & the Sonagi Project

The Korean Performing Arts Center (Korean Traditional Performing Arts Association) proudly presents its 18th annual concert, "Spirits, Nature and Heaven” featuring New York's two exceptional Korean performing artists, Sue Yeon Park (Korean dance master & national heritage fellow at the National Endowment for the Arts) and Jang Jae Hyo & the Sonagi Project (Korean traditional percussion ensemble). The main purpose of this annual concert is to showcase Korean art in its many forms and spread awareness of the art throughout NYC. The theme of this concert is based on shamanism and will focus on the important role of storytelling by religious specialists. While the performance of the Sounds of Korea is a much more traditional expression of the shamanistic world, the performance from Sonagi Project reinterprets this tradition. This concert will provide an opportunity for others to draw emotion and energy from and view Korean traditional music and dance, linking Korea’s values and past to the contemporary world stage.

The concert will begin with the performance of Minyo Medley (Gayageum Ensemble), featuring students from the KPAC workshops offered to Americans eager to learn about Korean culture. The group of Sounds of Korea will present Seungcheonmu, a dance of the spirit ascending to heaven. This dance is a sort of Ssitgim Gut or exorcism, a ceremony where shamans cleanse others from the negative of the dead and send them to paradise. Seungcheonmu, the dance, will be performed together with Gyeonggi Dodang Gut, music, by Sonagi Project. Finally, Sonagi Project will introduce new compositions based on Korean rhythms and chants. These new compositions will draw from the instrumental and vocal art of Pansori, including the artworks of Mun Gut, Doong Dang Gi Taryeong, and Pungmul.

THE ARGENTO CHAMBER ENSEMBLE PERFORMS MOZART’S REQUIEM With GEORG FRIEDRICH HAAS’S SEVEN SOUNDSPACES - ST. BART’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH
October 27, 2012 - New York

The Argento Chamber Ensemble, under the baton of conductor Michel Galante, will perform on October 27th at 7:30 pm at St. Bart’s Episcopal Church all fragments of Mozart’s unfinished Requiem K. 626 along with composer Georg Friedrich Haas’s Sieben Klangräume (Seven Soundspaces), which link together the fragments of Mozart’s masterwork. To open the program, acclaimed flutist Paula Robison will perform Mozart’s Andante K. 315 for flute and orchestra. The featured choir for the program is The College of New Jersey Chorale with vocal soloists soprano, Tharanga Goonetilleke; alto Silvie Jensen; tenor, Steven Wilson; and bass Peter Stewart.

As a greatly treasured contemporary composer in Austria, Georg Friedrich Haas was given complete access to all of Mozart’s manuscripts. Haas isolated all fragments that were exclusively in Mozart’s handwriting and on October 27th, audiences will be given the rare opportunity to hear these fragments (some unfinished), without the completions or orchestrations of any of his students.

Because Mozart died during the composition of his Requiem, this work can never be heard as the Austrian composer intended. Until recently, audiences heard Mozart’s masterpiece as filtered through the orchestrations and completions of lesser composers such as Franz Xavier Sussmeyr. Haas has responded to the challenge of how to present unfinished fragments in a concert format by interjecting “soundspaces” in between the unedited fragments of Mozart’s masterpiece. These soundspaces use letters of Mozart from 1791 to emphasize that during the composition of the Requiem, Mozart was undergoing an intense state duress and professional difficulty. The soundspaces serve as musical transitions between Mozart’s untouched fragments, and they also give a picture of what Mozart endured at this time. The soundspaces are composed in Haas’s own musical language, with the texts of Mozart’s letters spoken and sung by the choir.

Haas will be moving to the New York in 2013 to become Professor of Composition at Columbia University, replacing Tristan Murail. This move puts him squarely in the historical tradition of European composers such as Mahler, Schoenberg, and Stravinsky, all of whom moved to the United States and became part of the musical life of America. Argento is producing this concert as a way of welcoming Haas to the musical culture in New York City.

This concert is presented by St. Bart’s and sponsored by The Reed Foundation. Tickets can be purchased at the website at www.stbarts.org , or by calling the concert office at 212- 378- 0248.

Citizen Cope - Beacon Theatre
November 03, 2012 - New York

Citizen Cope is both a person (singer/songwriter Clarence Greenwood) and an acoustic-driven band. Born in Memphis and raised in Washington, D.C., Greenwood is the leader of the group, and he steers the band's soulful sound by serving as keyboardist, guitarist, lead singer, DJ, songwriter, and producer. Greenwood first broke into the music business by appearing on albums by Maryland-based rapper Basehead (1993's Not in Kansas Anymore and 1996's Faith), and he used that momentum to issue his first Citizen Cope album, Cope Citizen, in 1992. Greenwood spent the rest of the decade donating songs to several independently issued compilations -- including 1997's Settling the DC Score and 1999's Anti-Racist Action Benefit -- and appearing on the soundtracks to movies like Eat Me and Clubland. He also performed on Lazy K's 1997 album Life in One Day and inked his own deal with Capitol Records. Although Greenwood recorded an entire album, Shotguns, during his time with Capitol, the label never released the record and he was eventually released from his contract. Dreamworks took the opportunity to sign him in 2000, and Citizen Cope's self-titled album was released two years later. The bad luck continued, however, as Greenwood felt the label mishandled his record. Using an advance from Arista, he bought his way out of the Dreamworks contract and settled into a partnership with his new label. The Clarence Greenwood Recordings hit shelves in September 2004 and received considerable attention, with the track "Son's Gonna Rise" even appearing in a GM Pontiac commercial. The band remained with Arista/RCA for the release of Every Waking Moment two years later, but Greenwood had grown tired of the boundaries presented by any record label. Accordingly, he released The Rainwater LP himself in 2010, although the band's fusion of blues, folk-pop, and laidback hip-hop remained intact.
