LOUISIANA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra make their Carnegie Hall debut with a concert inspired by exotic locations and an unconventional concerto. Philip Glass’s Days and Nights in Rocinha is a tribute to the largest favela in Brazil, while La noche de los Mayas—a suite drawn from a score the Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas composed to a film that is now lost—is inspired by Mayan culture. Also on the program is Glass’s Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestra.

BOBBY PREVITE’S RHAPSODY BAND
Rhapsody is an acoustic, narrative song cycle which incorporates written music, improvisation, and vocals with lyrics to create an evening length performance. Rhapsody twists and turns, landing on song ‘events’ but never ending there, instead, spinning off in other directions, only to land again on a vocal moment, sung by Jen Shyu. Using acoustic harp (Zeena Parkins), piano (John Medeski), acoustic guitars (Nels Cline), and drums, autoharp, harmonica and percussion (Bobby Previte) the piece places the listener ‘in transit’ — traveling to an unknown place that subtly changes over the course of time, until in the end, they arrive at a surprise destination.

THE ACOUSTIC FRONTIER
The Acoustic Frontier is a program meant to advocate for new music and artists alike. By creating a space for composers to experiment with their concepts of musical expression, the program aims to challenge the performers while providing an educational setting for the audience. The program will consist of four world premieres, each work by a different composer. The music will be presented by a combination of four clarinetists and a pianist.
