With Richard Kolb

Saturday, May 26, 2018
@ 8:00 pm

Doctorow Center for the Arts
7971 Main Street, Village of Hunter

The Labyrinth Baroque Ensemble, directed by Richard Kolb, will present a concert featuring rarely heard works for three sopranos by Luzzaschi, Rossi, and Strozzi, and 3-violin sonatas by Fontana and Castello, with a richly varied continuo section of theorbo, archlute, harpsichord, and violone. The tradition of these unusual works began at the court of Ferrara in the 1580s, where they were reserved for the "Secret Music" of Duke Alfonso II and his inner circle of courtiers and very special guests.

Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center

FREE CONCERT

Come experience the powerful vibrations of Grammy Award Winner Koji Nakamura and OMNY Taiko’s traditional Japanese taiko drumming. Taiko drumming is a spiritual art. The sound of the Taiko drum is as pure and fundamental as the heartbeat and therefore has the power to cleanse ourselves and our surroundings. Percussion instruments are often the first to be adopted by a culture – it is thought that taiko drumming may go back as far as 2,000 years! OMNY Taiko’s members come from very diverse backgrounds, but all have a passion for sharing the beauty of Taiko with the world. As OMNY sounds like the prefix “omni” which means “all”, their motto is “We all play as one to unite the hearts of all.”

National Dance Institute returns this summer to conduct a two-week dance intensive for local children, culminating in a fully staged performance featuring local students, artists and the NDI Celebration Team of young dancers from New York City.

Founder, former NYC Ballet star Jacques d’Amboise, created NDI when he retired from dancing to give young people a chance to experience the excitement and fun of dancing and performing in a professional theatre. Kids from the mountain top and Greene County, grades 3-8, are invited to join in the fun this coming July. The dance intensive requires no dance experience.

Every year, this popular event draws large crowds. Colorful banners celebrating the theme of each year’s NDI program provide a backdrop for the young dancers. This is a high energy performance that celebrates the diversity and vibrancy of youth in our area.

This year, join us for the 10th Anniversary of the CMF and NDI partnership. Alumni of the last 10 years are invited to dance in this year's performance, which will celebrate the Hudson River and communities that exist thanks to its presence.

Crossing the C’s @ 7:30 pm

Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center
6050 Main Street, Village of Tannersville

Crossing the C’s
The Catskill Mountain Foundation and 23Arts Initiative present Crossing the C’s, a debut double guitar collaboration featuring South Africa-born guitar virtuoso Derek Gripper and the innovative Chilean guitarist-vocalist Camila Meza. This premier duo, backed by their band, team up to explore and interweave their worlds of folk and popular music across continents and cultures.
Derek Gripper is a South African kora guitarist. He began his formal musical training on the violin at the age of six. After studying classical music for the next 13 years, he began to look further afield for musical inspiration, including India where he studied South Indian Carnatic music. On his return home, he began to focus on the guitar, exploring a new direction for the instrument. He was attracted to the use of multiple layers in the music of Oliver Messiaen, the African-influenced structures of Steve Reich, and the guitar arrangements of the music of J. S. Bach. His groundbreaking albums have redefined the landscape of South African music.

Camila Meza is a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter/composer. Originally from Santiago, Chile, Ms. Meza blends modern jazz with her broad musical world which includes Latin American, Brazilian, folk and pop). She graduated from The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in 2012 where she studied with masters such as Peter Bernstein, Vic Juris, Sam Yahel, Steve Cardenas and Gil Goldstein.

Shilpa Ray
Shilpa Ray is an American singer-songwriter from Brooklyn, New York with a blues punk sound. Her music has been compared to Blondie, The Cramps and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and her singing has been compared to the style of Patti Smith, Nick Cave, and Ella Fitzgerald. Ray is notable for combining an Indian harmonium with a “big-voiced blues-rock howler” vocal approach. Her eponymous band signed a record contract with Northern Spy Records and has toured internationally. In 2011, Shilpa toured Europe and North America with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds as a backup singer and their supporting act. Now Shilpa Ray brings the DIY grit of her new album Door Girl to the Catskills, which NPR says “captures New York nightlife in all its sordid, sweaty chaos and supplies caustic commentary on life in the unfeeling city.”

IGUDESMAN & JOO
A Little Nightmare Music

Saturday August 4, 2018
@ 8:00 PM

Doctorow Center for the Arts
7971 Main Street, Village of Hunter

“A Little Nightmare Music brings surrealism to the concert hall and takes its trousers down! Very musical, very engaging and very funny.”
—Terry Jones Comedian/Monty Python/Director

“A Little Nightmare Music as a title is a misnomer … Igudesman and Joo are a DREAM … watch them!”—Sir Roger Moore Actor

Just when you thought it was safe…
The concert begins. The music is sublime. Not even a pin would dare drop. Suddenly, a cellphone rings and the madness starts. The pianist loses his hand, the violinist, while tuning, falls asleep, and later wakes up in the middle of a motorway, transformed into a “Riverdancer”. When the pianist returns, the piano is locked, telling him to insert his credit card. Meanwhile, the violinist loses his bow to a vacuum cleaner and his partner just talks on the phone while reading a paper, eating, and playing the piano upside down all at the same time. These and many other “nightmares” unfold before audiences’ eyes and ears.

“A Little Nightmare Music” is a unique show, full of virtuosity, enchanting music and zany, outrageous humour. Ideal for audiences aged 8 to 88, this show is sure to captivate you and crack you up whether you’re a classical music enthusiast or the type who runs for cover at the mere mention of Mozart.

Aleksey Igudesman and Hyung-ki Joo are two classical musicians who have taken the world by storm with their unique and hilarious theatrical shows, which combine comedy with classical music and pop culture. Equally comfortable performing in classical concert halls as well as in stadiums in front of crowds of 18,000, their collective dream is to make classical music accessible to a wider and younger audience.
Their sold-out concert last year was riotously good fun. Enhance your love of classical music and tone your stomach muscles by hysterically laughing to and with Igudesman & Joo.

Perspectives Ensemble contextualizes the works of composers in performances that feature the music of living composers and historic figures, shedding new light on their work through explorations of their music, time and place.
To celebrate the life of Doctorow Center major supporter, Daniele Doctorow, Perspectives Ensemble will perform two classical works by the great Spanish composer, Manuel deFalla: El Amor Brujo and Master Peter’s Puppet Show. They plan to present a number of school and public workshops leading up to these two pieces and then to repeat the program in NYC. El Amor Brujo is scored for 15 musicians and one cantaora (Romani or Gypsy singer), who Perspectives Ensemble will bring from Spain. Master Peter’s Puppet Show, which sets an episode from Cervante’s Don Quixote, is scored for 22 musicians and three singers.

Visual artist, Kevork Mourad, will project his work onto a screen behind the players and morph together art created in real time, synced with the live music, with animations he has created in advance.

Kevork Mourad, an artist of Armenian heritage born in Syria in 1970, combines painting with performance art in a series of distinctive and expressive works that converge art, music and performance. Mourad's defining style and technique is "spontaneous painting", which involves creating paintings that are in concord with music.

Twyla Tharp Dance

Residency:
September 30-October 28, 2018
Performance:
Saturday, October 20, 2018
@ 7:30 pm

Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center
6050 Main Street, Village of Tannersville

Following a month-long residency at the Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center, Twyla Tharp and her dancers will stage a performance of two earlier works, plus works in progress.

“Minimalism and Me” includes projections of Twyla’s early art work as backdrops for selections from dance pieces choreographed during the period of 1965 and 1970 and reconstructed for this piece. Created for a residency by Twyla Tharp in December, 2017 for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, “Minimalism and Me” recollects Tharp’s experiences while living among major visual artists of the time, illuminating the progression of minimalism in the 1960’s and 1970’s and the influence the movement had on her choreography.

The second work will be a restaging of two of the dances in the original “Eight Jelly Rolls,” inspired by Jelly Roll Morton. Tharp’s first work intended for a proscenium stage, “Eight Jelly Rolls” premiered in 1971. Jelly Roll Morton’s original recordings recall the atmosphere of the Roaring Twenties as America shook itself loose from stiff European traditions. The comedic timing and slippery flow of movement in the choreography reflects the sense of ease and freedom of the 1920s. Tharp’s solo, nicknamed “The Drunk,” emphasizes the natural loose-limbed athleticism that became synonymous with her work.

Works may be subject to change.

Twyla Tharp has choreographed more than 160 works for her company as well as for the Joffrey Ballet, the New York City Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, London’s Royal Ballet, and American Ballet Theatre. She’s won two Emmy Awards for television’s Baryshnikov by Tharp, and a Tony Award for the Broadway musical Movin’ Out, featuring the songs of Billy Joel. She’s winner of nineteen honorary doctorates, the Vietnam Veterans of America President’s Award, the 2004 National Medal of the Arts, the 2008 Jerome Robbins Prize, and a 2008 Kennedy Center Honor.
