Co-presented with Columbia University School of the Arts
The “fearless” (Time Out NY) percussion and piano quartet performs Thomas Meadowcroft’s Walkman Antiquarian, which juxtaposes music technologies to create an altogether unique sonic experience, paired with the world premiere of Laminar Flow by the Italian composer and sound artist Zeno Baldi.
Simone Dinnerstein, piano
Simone Dinnerstein performs “An American Mosaic” by composer Richard Danielpour, a new work for solo piano dedicated to the many individuals affected by this dark period. Dinnerstein performs this piece in the rare setting of one of Columbia’s most iconic reading rooms in Butler Library.
Arturo O'Farrill & the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra
The composer, musician, and seven-time Grammy Award-winner Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra perform the long-awaited world premiere of Mundoagua, a new commission from the School of the Arts in honor of Columbia's Year of Water, paired with another work by O’Farrill and Carla Bley's Blue Palestine
Regional de NY
The incredibly talented Brooklyn-based choro band returns to Miller’s Pop-Up Concerts series to share the choro tradition of Brazilian culture—a highly energetic, improvisational music that is full of joy and deeply grooving.
The very first public performance by the acclaimed JACK Quartet featured Helmut Lachenmann’s string quartet Grido, and it’s been a constant for them ever since. The mastering of this technically demanding piece shows their incredible talent, but their expressive interpretation reveals their brilliance as an ensemble. Hear them perform this work, alongside two other solo pieces by Lachenmann which explore nontraditional techniques and sounds.
Brandee Younger & Dezron Douglas
Brandee Younger (harp) and Dezron Douglas (bass) join together for an incredible evening of inspired jazz works by Alice Coltrane, Marvin Gaye, and the artists themselves.
Mariel Roberts, cello
Cellist Mariel Roberts performs a solo recital with music spanning 300 years, from Bach to Saint-Saëns, George Lewis, and her own composition.
