The Cal Poly Arab Music Ensemble will perform their spring concert with the Zaryab Ensemble at 7:30 p.m. on June 4.

This year’s spring concert will be joined by the Zaryab Ensemble, a group of musicians from Iran and Tajikistan based in the San Francisco Bay Area and greater Sacramento area.

“The [spring concert] is particularly significant as it concludes the year of the return of COVID isolation,” Kenneth Habib, director of the Cal Poly Arab Ensemble and music teacher at Cal Poly.

During the quarantine, the ensemble members had to switch to a virtual format. Habib said the ensemble “has done an amazing job adapting to virtual encounter, continuing to be musically active, and breaking new thresholds in performing and producing music.”

When home orders were lifted, the ensemble had to rebuild as a live performance group. He also had to catch up on previous plans and commitments that fell through due to COVID-19, Habib said.

This will be the third year that the Zaryab Ensemble joins the Cal Poly Arab Music Ensemble which is a combined orchestra and choir with vocal and instrumental soloists.

“The last time they were supposed to be here was in March 2020, when I had to cancel the concert two days in advance due to COVID – a difficult task indeed,” Habib said.

Both ensembles perform independently and in collaboration. These performances include a regional folk song sung in both Arabic, Persian and Sephardi. There will also be a dance troupe led by San Luis Obispo dance director Jenna Mitchell. The troupe will perform “original choreography as an extension of a long collaboration of music and dance in the concerts of the Arab Music Ensemble”, according to a press release.

“One of the missions of the Arab Music Ensemble is for its members and audiences to experience high quality Arabic and related music at Cal Poly and the Central Coast,” Habib said. “The amount of associated diversity in the South West Asia and North Africa region is huge, and while we can’t cover it all, we bring the parts of it that we can do well to the community. .”

The Cal Poly Music Department’s Arabic Music Ensemble performs quarterly.

The Broad Stage presents Mark Morris Dance Group & Music Ensemble in MOZART DANCES https://10nyo.net/the-broad-stage-presents-mark-morris-dance-group-music-ensemble-in-mozart-dances/ Tue, 17 May 2022 23:17:07 +0000 https://10nyo.net/the-broad-stage-presents-mark-morris-dance-group-music-ensemble-in-mozart-dances/

The Broad Stage presents the stage debut of Marc Morris Dance Group (MMDG) with the MMDG Music Ensemble in Mozart Dances, June 9-12. Mozart Dances has been hailed as music incarnate, featuring three exquisite piano works by Mozart set to Morris’ dynamic and uplifting choreography. The program includes a world premiere chamber arrangement of Piano Concerto No. 27 by MMDG Music Director Colin Fowler, as well as Piano Concerto No. 11 and Sonata for Two Pianos, all performed live on stage Main of The Broad Stage.

Choreographer Marc Morris has been called the “Mozart of modern dance” for its common characteristics with the musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Marc MorrisProlific dance creation, devotion to music and early expression of his talent distinguished him as a choreographer and director of modern dance, ballet and opera.

In honor of the European composer to whom he is assimilated, Marc Morris was commissioned by the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to create a dance for Mozart’s 250th birthday celebration. The result was the much-loved Mozart Dances, which his company, Marc Morris Dance Group, established in 2006. Three piano compositions inspired these dances and are performed live as its company of dancers perform what critics and fans have called “musical visualizations”. Marc Morris is so skilled in music that he often creates his dances by reading sheet music and responding to the notes with his own invention of movement.

Vital for Marc Morristhe creative process of are his collaborators, who for this work include set designer Howard Hodgkin; costume designer Martin Pakledinaz; and lighting design James F. Ingallswho are all recognized artists in their field and partners in the production Marc Morris‘ vision for each dance work.

Marc Morris said of Mozart’s dances, “I began to hear the concertos as characters…there is an incredible and touching relationship between the piano and the orchestra. The music for me is exciting, strange in its unusual combination, and that’s exactly what this dance comes from where.”

Andrew Blackmore-Dobbyn said on Bachtrack.com: “In the three works that make up Mozart’s Dances, Morris engages in a beautiful conversation with the music. It illuminates the themes and instrumental vocals but is never confined by the structure of the music. Mozart’s music is filled with intelligence, wit and even passion, but it’s always held back by an overlay of civility and Morris found an effective way to convey all of this in his Mozart Dances. Marc Morris distinguishes himself as a choreographer by his remarkable use of music. He has many different ways to express what he hears and it all adds up to the joy.”

Alastair Macaulay said in the New York Times, “Throughout Mozart’s dances, Marc Morris emerges as the most artistically alive musical choreographer. »

Judith Mackrell said in The Guardian: “Seeing Mozart through Morris’ eyes is even better…what makes this evening…is the very human voice that Morris finds in the beauty of the music All the audience has to do is be wowed by the experience.”

The Times UK proclaims: “If you could capture the essence of childhood play – boundless energy; unconscious immersion in simulation; relentless inventiveness; the pure pleasure of creativity… you would have the Marc Morris Dance group in the dances of Mozart.”

The Australian adds: “Mozart Dances reveals Marc Morris as the great magician of contemporary dance and its optimist par excellence. In this seemingly carefree work, he offers principles of profound beauty, not didactically but with simplicity and grace.”

Founded in New York in 1980 by artistic director and choreographer Marc Morristhe Marc Morris Dance Group (MMDG) has been called “the preeminent modern dance organization of our time” (Yo-Yo Ma), with its members receiving “highest praise for their technical poise, musicality and sheer human authenticity”. (Bloomberg News). Live music and community involvement are essential elements of the dance group, which has been touring with its own musicians, the MMDG Music Ensemble, since 1996. Marc Morris The dance center was opened in 2001 to provide a home for the dance group, subsidized rental space for local artists, programs for local children and seniors, and dance lessons for students of all ages and abilities.

The music ensemble MMDG, formed in 1996, is an integral part of the dance group. “With the dancers come the musicians…and what a difference that makes” (Classical Voice of North Carolina). The Ensemble’s repertoire includes works from the 17th and 18th centuries by John Wilson and Henry Purcell to more recent scores by Ethan Iverson, Lou Harrison and Henry Cowell. The musicians also participate in the dance group’s educational and community programming at home and on tour.

]]> Best country music duos of all time – 24/7 Wall St. https://10nyo.net/best-country-music-duos-of-all-time-24-7-wall-st/ Tue, 17 May 2022 14:00:39 +0000 https://10nyo.net/best-country-music-duos-of-all-time-24-7-wall-st/

What’s better than a country song sung by your favorite performer? How about one sung by two of them, in perfect harmony? Country music has produced a number of memorable duets involving husbands and wives, fathers and sons, fathers and daughters, and combinations of artists from other genres. (Sometimes couples push boundaries. Here are 25 bizarre musical collaborations.)

To compile a list of the best duos in country music history, 24/7 Tempo reviewed the lists of Grammys and Country Music Awards and nominations in relevant categories, plus lists of top country duos on sites including wide open country, Country Thang Daily, All Nash, Rotating ditty, Flayer and private soldierthen curated the list to represent key figures and hit songs in the traditional, modern, and alt.country categories of the past 71 years.

The duets that have brought together some of country music’s finest performers – from Patsy Cline to Dolly Parton to Kenny Chesney – have been a staple of the genre. Keeping it in the family, husband and wife team Chris and Morgane Stapleton have turned “You Are My Sunshine” – Louisiana’s state song – into an affirmation of family and partnership. Through the use of technology, the late Hank Williams and his son, Hank Jr., were reunited in a music video, singing “There’s a Tear in My Beer.” (These are the biggest country music stars of all time.)

While many country songs are about poverty, lost love, personal demons, and redemption, others have tackled larger issues. Alan Jackson and George Strait used the song “Murder on Music Row” to speak out against the commercialization of country music and how it disconnected it from its roots. Eric Church and country and blues singer Rhiannon Giddens have teamed up to perform “Kill a Word” following messages of hate and intolerance during the 2016 presidential election.

Country music is known for its various subgenres, and the country rap theme burst onto the music scene in 2019 when “Old Town Road,” performed by country singer Billy Ray Cyrus and rapper Lil Nas X, hit the music scene. set records on the charts. .

No list of duets would be complete without a mention of notable artists singing about alcohol. Among them, “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’” by Travis Tritt and Marty Stuart. Jackson and Jimmy Buffett’s “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” is as much working-class lament as it is happy hour nirvana.

Bath Festival Orchestra/Manning review – aquatic theme fails to float together revived | Classical music https://10nyo.net/bath-festival-orchestra-manning-review-aquatic-theme-fails-to-float-together-revived-classical-music/ Tue, 17 May 2022 12:15:00 +0000 https://10nyo.net/bath-festival-orchestra-manning-review-aquatic-theme-fails-to-float-together-revived-classical-music/

Jhe Bath Festival Orchestra was established by Yehudi Menuhin in 1959, when he began his 10-festival tenure as director. It has now been revived under the direction of Peter Manning and aims to invoke the status and reputation of the original band while providing a platform for emerging talent. However, it would seem from this exhibition at this year bath partyeven taking into account the pandemic issues and the delays, that the orchestra still has a long way to go before it can respond to some of the outlandish claims made about it.

There was already something slightly surreal about an evening of sea-inspired string music taking place in the city’s ancient Roman baths, even though the cry of seagulls, spinning and spinning above the head, contributed to vanity. And, although all four pieces have titles specifying their maritime connection, the combination of established works with new ones did not come together as a neat flotilla.

The program opener was Takemitsu’s Toward the Sea in 1981, commissioned by Greenpeace for its Save the Whales campaign and referencing Herman Melville’s Moby Dick – its awareness-raising focus is arguably even more needed today. Takemitsu’s inclusion of the sultry alto flute (Frederico Paixão) and harp (Alis Huws) with the texture of the strings gives the piece its distinctly French aura but, the playing of the strings – 16 in number – lacked character. to invest the music with the meditative element that is part of its fundamental quality.

american composer Daniel Temkin‘s Ocean’s Call, created in 2015, is inspired by the vastness of the Pacific and California’s Big Sur. As a percussionist, one might have expected Temkin to be preoccupied with rhythmic sensibilities, but these were not apparent and, given the overwhelming feeling that had inspired the piece, it was underwhelming and tasteless.

Visions at Sea (2011) by Dutch composer Joey Roukens was, like the Temkin, first conceived for string quartet. Ostensibly conveying a sense of the Netherlands’ relationship with the sea over time, it has weaved quotes from the past into the fabric, as well as pieces of traditional bagpipes and sea shanties. Yet, with its mix of tonal and atonal elements, it never quite achieved an organic whole.

Between these two relatively recent works were interposed Grace Williamsfrom 1944, the work Sea Sketches. Evoking the most robust string playing of the evening, there were also expressive moments that hinted at the ultimate viability of the whole thing but, overall, it was an underwhelming occasion.

The Ensemble de Violoncelles de Montréal gives young musicians the chance to excel, at no cost – Montreal https://10nyo.net/the-ensemble-de-violoncelles-de-montreal-gives-young-musicians-the-chance-to-excel-at-no-cost-montreal/ Sun, 15 May 2022 20:15:18 +0000 https://10nyo.net/the-ensemble-de-violoncelles-de-montreal-gives-young-musicians-the-chance-to-excel-at-no-cost-montreal/

The Ensemble de Violoncelles de Montréal offers free equipment and music lessons to children who may never have had the opportunity to play.

Six-year-old Amaka Idaboh was the first-ever student to apply to the program two years ago. Today, the freshman plays the cello at college level and even released her first song called “I love my Barbie doll.”

“I don’t know how I could have afforded to pay for these kinds of lessons with the experienced instructors she has, if it weren’t for the generosity of the foundation,” said her mother, Joan Idaboh.

Aside from banging on the piano keys, her daughter had never played an instrument. When the family moved from Nigeria to Montreal in 2018, Joan didn’t even know the cello existed.

“Before coming to Canada, I mean, I had heard of the violin. I had heard of the guitar. I had never, ever, ever seen a cello,” the mother told Global News.

The story continues under the ad

When Amaka was four years old, the family could not afford daycare in Montreal. The mother and daughter were staying at home together when a neighbor suggested that a four-year-old child audition for a new group, the Montreal Cello Ensemble.

The Montreal Cello Ensemble offers Montreal children a full scholarship and the opportunity to learn and play with cellists Geneviève Guimond and Gary Russell of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.

Guimond told Global News that Idaboh is the exact child the program is trying to reach.

“A kid who has this enormous talent and this enormous ability and something that he probably wouldn’t have sought on his own.”

Idaboh auditioned at the age of four and was “thrilled” with the cello, according to her mother.

“I saw the glint in his eyes and I was like, okay, that’s good,” Joan said.

His teachers said he was not just a glimmer, but a natural talent from the start.

“I remember the wonderful audition she did,” Russell said. “She is clearly a performer and she sang beautifully in tune.”

Idaboh was one of 15 children chosen from 100 auditions. Now the freshman practices almost every day and plays with the set once a week on Saturdays.

“It’s just awesome,” she said of the cello, adding, “There are so many songs to play.”

Idaboh’s mother is continually surprised by her daughter’s talent, joking that she doesn’t come from a musical family.

“It can’t be me, it can’t be his father. I guess she was born with it,” she laughed.

The six-year-old girl dreams of one day becoming “an expert at gambling and making money” to provide for her future children.

“Like, if my kids want hot dogs, I’ll buy them for them,” she said.

For now, Idaboh plans to write more songs and encourage other children to play the cello.

“It’s hard, but it’s fun to learn.”
