Dutch & New York Artists Collaborate For NYFA Int’l Composers Exchange

October 3, 2012

The New York Foundation for the Arts’ (NYFA) International Composers Exchange is offering composers from different nations artist-in-residency opportunities in New York to advance their careers through seminars, creative exchanges and performances. On Saturday, October 13 at 8 p.m., five Dutch and New York acts will collaborate in concert at Our Lady of Lebanon Cathedral, 113 Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights. Tickets are $15, or $12 for members and students.

The performance concludes the first International Composers Exchange, in which the five Netherlands artists worked in residence with some of NYC’s “most dynamic young ensembles and artistic institutions. The concert presents the result of this international collaborative work, with a great variety of styles and media, ranging from jazz to chamber music to video installation,” according to the organization.

The October 13 ensemble will showcase the world premiere of a new work by Michael Edward Edgerton, a leading specialist of extended vocal techniques, as well as a piece by composer and NYFA scholar Eve Beglarian, who will soon be heading to the Netherlands as part of the second round of the International Composers Exchange.

Featured artists include: Sander Breure, Witte van Hulzen, Mise-En Ensemble (dir. Moon-Young Ha), Jeremiah Runnels, Ekmeles Ensemble (dir. Jeffrey Gavett), Thanasis Deligiannis, Eve Beglarian, Michael Edward Edgerton and Yedo Gibson. See their bios here.

Middlebury College Bobolinks Perform At Our Lady of Lebanon Monday, October 15

October 2, 2012

Middlebury College’s oldest coed a cappella group Bobolinks will perform Monday October 15 at 7 p.m. at Our Lady of Lebanon Cathedral, 113 Remsen Street (Henry Street entrance). The concert is free, with donations appreciated. Bobolinks’ repertoire ranges “from rock to hip-hop to bizarre British neo-pop & everything in between.” The group was selected to appear on the “Voices Only” CD compilation featuring the best college a cappella music of 2011. The group is now touring to raise money to produce its own all-Bobolinks CD.

Student music director Catherine Charnov, a 2013 Middlebury graduate, is a Brooklyn Heights resident who graduated from St. Ann’s School in 2009. She also performed in the Brooklyn Youth Chorus Academy, where she trained for 11 years.
