“For the past 30 years, Composers Concordance has been a booster for local composers, through both its concerts across the city and a record label.” -The Wall Street Journal. “Enterprising new music organization” -The New York Times. On Saturday, March 29th at 8pm, Composers Concordance and 92Y will present the program ‘Eclectic Bands / Eclectic Dance.’ This festive, multimedia event will explore the fusion of contemporary music and modern dance through the interpolation of contrasting elements, disciplines, styles, and aesthetics.

 

Pasted GraphicBruka Band, featuring Roger Bonair-Agard, Lauri Galbreath, Arielle Harp, Carmen Kordas, and Milica Paranosic, will perform a selection from Milica Paranosic’s multimedia composition ‘Goddess Chronicles.’ Erbium, featuring Dan Cooper, Daniel Palkowski, Cesare Papetti, will perform Cooper’s original compositions, plus contemporary arrangements of Liszt, Prokofiev, and Satie. Sound Liberation, featuring Greg Baker, Charles Coleman, David Gotay, Franz Hackl, Paul Mack, and Gene Pritsker, will perform Pritsker’s original compositions, including ‘The Rite of Spring Through an Eclectic Spectrum’ as well as selections from the band’s new album ‘Days‘ on the CCR label. Additionally, accordionist William Schimmel will perform his composition ‘Malecuona II,’ and violinist Lara St. John will perform Milica Paranosic’s composition ‘Čoček.’ Dancer-choreographers will include Julie Fotheringham and Max Pollak, among others.

 

Composers Concordance strives to present contemporary music in innovative ways, with an emphasis on thematic programming. Gene Pritsker, Dan Cooper, and Milica Paranosic co-curate the programs, and lead CCE, the ensemble-in-residence at William Paterson University. Venues in recent seasons have included Bohemian National Hall, Chelsea Art Museum, Cutting Room, Dimenna Center, Drom NYC, Gallery MC, LPR, Miller Theater, the Museum of Natural History, and Weill Recital Hall, among many others. Composers Concordance was founded in 1984 by Joseph Pehrson and Patrick Hardish, advised by Otto Luening. It has also created a new record label, Composers Concordance Records, with distribution by Naxos. Composers Concordance’s overriding vision is to see contemporary music, composers, and new works as a rightful and respected part of society. Good music, performed and recorded well, pushing the boundaries of sound and composition.
