AMEX Logo The young trio of Glen McDaniel, Zack Clark, and Nicholas Villalobos, together known as Simply Three, has garnered stirring success with their unique transformation of string music. With old school training but a new school sound, Simply Three is re-shaping convention with its original works and innovative arrangements that blend classical style with popular songs of today.

Lehman College and Community Band: Autumn Leaves - Music Building Room 306, Lehman College Campus
November 19, 2017 - Bronx

The Lehman College and Community Band will open its 2017-18 season with “Autumn Leaves,” a concert program of masterworks emphasizing wind instruments and displaying the many “colors” of the ensemble, on Sunday, November 19 at 2:00 p.m. in the Lovinger Theatre on the Lehman campus. The Lehman College and Community Band will honor the college’s Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-winning Distinguished Professor John Corigliano, who will turn 80 next year, by performing two movements of his Gazebo Dances, originally written for piano four hands and arranged for concert band by the composer himself. Also on the program is another keyboard arrangement, the dramatic Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor, written by J. S. Bach for pipe organ, but which lends itself quite naturally for a wind ensemble; and Percy Grainger’s seminal Lincolnshire Posy, a suite of folk song adaptations resembling musical wildflowers and one of the great masterworks of the genre. Rounding out the program is Elegie, a haunting piece from Canadian-based British composer Peter Meechan and a solo feature for the band’s baritone horn player Walter Barrett, plus works by Gershwin, Shostakovich, and Mozart.

Conditions of Light - Argento Chamber Ensemble
November 20, 2017 - New York

Internationally-acclaimed Ensemble Cairn travels from Paris to join forces with Argento in our season opener in New York City. Under the baton of Guillaume Bourgogne, French-American violinist Elissa Cassini will perform the world premiere of Jérôme Combier's Koussevitsky commission Conditions de lumière, a concerto for violin and ensemble. During a pessimistic moment in international relations, Argento and Ensemble Cairn wish to highlight the positive, idealistic, generous, and creative potential of international relations. This concert, the result of an intense transatlantic exchange of music between the two ensembles, will feature both French and American composers. In addition to Jérôme Combier's coloristic style, Gérard Pesson takes familiar rhythms and vernacular influences and orchestrates them with "noises" from all the instruments. Franck Bedrossian also explores musical "noise," but for its darker, more dramatic potential. On this side of the Atlantic, we perform American composers Michel Galante and Nina C.

We're part of a long train ride," is the way Peter Yarrow visualizes the many events that have highlighted a career spanning more than four decades. With characteristic care, Yarrow places the success he's had within a greater context, seeing his accomplishments as part of a tradition, to be credited and carried on. "When I was in high school," he recalls, "I heard The Weavers' concert at Carnegie Hall where they sang songs such as 'If I Had a Hammer,' and 'Wasn't That a Time.' It was inspiring, and it showed me the extraordinary effect that music of conscience can have." That lesson launched Peter on a lifelong path that is now, perhaps, in its most vital phase.
