This year’s exhilarating 2018/19 Green Guest Artist Series includes:
Saturday, Sept. 15@7:30: Bang on a Can All-Stars
Recognized worldwide for their dynamic live performances and recordings of today’s most innovative music, this six-member amplified ensemble has consistently forged a distinct category-defying identity, freely crossing the boundaries between classical, jazz, rock, world and experimental music and traveling into uncharted territories. The ensemble’s ongoing multimedia project, Field Recordings, showcases commissioned works by 14 composers, channeled through the “unstoppable” Bang on a Can All-Stars (bangonacan).
Wednesday, Oct. 10@8: Conspirare, Considering Matthew Shepard
Craig Hella Johnson conducts the Grammy Award-winning ensemble Conspirare in a riveting performance of Considering Matthew Shepard, his musical response to the tragic death of a young gay man who has become an American symbol for hope and empowerment. This major new work for chorus, soloists and chamber ensemble sets to music a rich variety of texts by librettist Michael Dennis Browne and poets Lesléa Newman, Rumi and many others, leading listeners from anguish to understanding (conspirare.org)
Saturday, Nov. 17@7:30: New York Voices
Described as “one of the finest singing ensembles ever assembled” (Edward Blanco, All About Jazz), this quartet of critically acclaimed vocalists has refined its musical story to a high art. Known for close-knit voicings, inspired arrangements and unparalleled vocal blend, the group’s chameleon-like musicianship allows it to move seamlessly from setting to setting, be it intimate, orchestral or big band — as our Green guest artists and as headliners for DePauw School of Music’s 2018 JazzFest (newyorkvoices.com).
Sunday, Feb. 3@2: Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra with cellist Julian Steckel
Engaging melodies, rich harmonies and orchestral textures describe Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 3, which came 30 years after his second symphony. Italian conductor Daniel Rustioni will lead the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra through the nostalgic Symphony No. 3 and Respighi’s symphonic poem Fountains of Rome. Cellist Julian Steckel will take on Shostakovich’s challenging Concerto No. 1 (indianapolissymphony.org).
Friday, Apr. 5@7:30: International Contemporary Ensemble, Artists-in-Residence
Recipients of the American Music Center’s Trailblazer Award and the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, ICE’s 35 members are soloists, chamber musicians, commissioners and collaborators with the foremost musical artists of our time. Named the 2014 Musical America Ensemble of the Year, this NYC-based ensemble serves as artists-in-residence at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Its residency at DePauw will culminate in this season’s final Green Guest Artist concert (www.iceorg.org).
