Musical Amoeba’s final concert of the season, with the Washington Square Winds, will be presented June 10th, at 7:30 pm, at the Church Street School of Music in lower Manhattan.
Music of CUNY Grad composer Austin Shadduck, recent Queens College graduates Gregory J Menillo and William Wheeler, and founder of the blog/magazine “I Care if You Listen” Thomas Deneuville will be presented along side a performance of Leos Janacek’s sextet ‘Mládi’.
Musical Amoeba is a new concert series, now on it’s third official concert, whose focus is to bring new compositions to the world, while also juxtaposing them against the historical canon. In order to bring a diversity of sounds, Musical Amoeba seeks to work with established groups, allowing them to curate part of the program, leading to a wide variety of music. Musical Amoeba has worked with the Samadi-Keene duo, Washington Square Winds, along with premiering its own ensemble in May, STRIA.
The Washington Square Winds, founded in 2009, is a wind quintet which seeks to bring new repertoire to life by collaborating with emerging composers. Their annual series “They’re Alive” has become a hotbed of premiers, with several works specifically written or arranged for it. They have also recently presented “The Fisherman and other stories”, with Oracle Hysterical, blending Brothers Grimm tales with contemporary music.
