Composers Concordance's Festival II: Concert #5: Legends
DiMenna Center Mary Flagler Cary Hall
450 West 37th Street, NYC
United States

Tickets: $20 day of performance, $15 students and advance tickets
Composers Concordance Chamber Orchestra (CCCO), Lara St. John - violin, Valerie Coleman - flute, Thomas Carlo Bo - conductor

In 1893, legendary Czech composer Antonín Dvořák spoke in NYC of the influence of Native American and African American music on his Symfonie. He urged American composers to focus attention on what "must" be the foundation for "the future music of this country." The concert program is entitled 'Legends', recalling the timeless melodies of Dvořák himself, and examining the influence of Native American and African American music on contemporary orchestral composition. Conducted by Thomas Carlo Bo, this debut performance of CCCO features violinist Lara St. John and flutist Valerie Coleman (of Imani Winds) as soloists. Moreover, each member of this orchestra is a true champion of contemporary music, including bass trombonist Dave Taylor, pianist Taka Kigawa, percussionist Peter Jarvis, violinist Lynn Bechtold, and oboist Keve Wilson, among others. Don't miss this event, to include the distinctive compositions of Valerie Coleman, Dan Cooper, Patrick Hardish (Founding Director), Otto Luening ('Potawatomi Legends'), Milica Paranosic, Joseph Pehrson (Founding Director), Gene Pritsker, and Dave Soldier.

Chico Hamilton


Sundays this Fall: 10.14 + 11.11 + 12.09

As evidenced on his latest recording Revelation (Joyous Shout!), 90 year-old drummer/leader Forestorn “Chico” Hamilton is still creating vivid, positive, uplifting, and relevant music. Saluted by the Kennedy Center as a "Living Jazz Legend", and appointed to the President’s Council on the Arts, this NEA Jazz Master is considered one of the most important living jazz artists and composers.

DROM presents EUPHORIC – Celebrating the Life & Music of Chico Hamilton for three Sunday night performances this Fall (OCT - DEC) featuring Chico and his long-time touring band featuring Nick Demopoulos (guitar), Paul Ramsey (bass), Evan Schwam (flute + reeds), Mayu Saeki (flute), and Jeremy Carlstedt (drums + percussion) as well as special featured guests TBA. Program includes mostly Chico originals off of Revelation ranging from the samba-ish gem “Footprints in the Sand” to the ballad “Every Time I Smile.”
