Frederick Rzewski, Moor Mother,
Arcana New Music Ensemble
Bowerbird is pleased to present an online virtual portrait concert of American composer and virtuoso pianist Frederic Rzewski. The concert will feature the world premiere of a new music video of Rzewski’s “Coming Together” made by Camae Ayewa (aka Moor Mother) and video artist Bob Sweeney. The video was shot this spring on site at Eastern State Penitentiary and features a musical performance by the Arcana New Music Ensemble. The program will also include video recordings from May 2021 of Frederick Rzewski performing several of his recent works. The program will also include two rarely heard solo works – “Shtick” for solo saxophone and “Sixteen Sneakers” for solo viola.
Returning in Late June
Bowerbird and The Rotunda are pleased to announce the summer line up for Liminal States, a series of late night, live streamed concerts intended to be listened to as you fall asleep. Aiming to center and calm, the musicians will seek to lead listeners to that magic space between awake and asleep. Tune in and bliss out.
