Performing with Bachtopus, Oct 9, 2016

New music for accordion

bachtostpetesI will be performing some of my own music with the Bachtopus Accordion Ensemble on Sunday October 9, 2016 in Chelsea in NYC.
Sunday, Oct 9, 2016
4:00 pm
St. Peter’s Church
346 W. 20th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues
New York, NY

$10 suggestion donation – proceeds to their food pantry program

We will be playing three compositions of mine for accordion ensemble: Vegetative States, Halfway, and my newest work, High Summer: Brood V inspired by the annual emergence of the cicadas. These are all part of what I call my ambient classical project – very meditative and evocative – they should sound fabulous in the lovely live space at St. Peter’s. In addition the group will be playing music by Bach, Philip Glass, Arvo Pärt, and other contemporary composers.

I’ll be performing with my colleagues Robert Duncan, Mayumi Miyaoka, Denise Koncelik and Jeanne Velonis in our first formal indoor concert. (We’ve played out in the parks a great deal during the past two summers.)

It should be a fun and unique sounding concert in a great space and will last about an hour. Children welcome.
