Join us for an evening program celebrating the differences and similarities of dances within the African Diaspora. Using movement and music, students will go on an interactive dance tour starting in West Africa, going to the Caribbean & Latin America, and finally landing in the Unites States. Navigate through history while connecting different cultures. Part dance performance, part dance instruction, 100% excitement! Best for ages 5 and older. Presented by Urban Stages.
Join us for a winter celebration of the timeless works for violin and keyboard by J. S. Bach! Residents and world-class performers Juliana Genghis Han and Wayne Lee will perform the complete cycle over two nights. The program will also feature the Bach-inspired 21st century piece “Sillage” (2007) by composer Ryan Francis, bridging past to present, and baroque Germany with modern-day New York City… Don’t miss our final offering for 2017!
General admission: $15/night, $25/two nights; Seniors, Students, Military/Veterans: $10/night, $18/two nights; age 18 and under: Free
Listen Closely is a new chamber music initiative in Inwood, currently in our second season of events and concerts. We are a growing coalition of chamber musicians and composers living uptown, and we are dedicated to sharing quality chamber music with our neighborhood. Our name reflects our craft; as musicians, we are all about full-hearted listening to one another and sharing intimate and memorable musical experiences with others through live performance. Additionally, we are listening closely to the pulse of our community to discover where and how the music we love is most needed. Our hope is to create new and befriend existing music lovers of our neighborhood, and to do our part in developing a strong and vibrant local chamber music scene through educating, making connections, and trying new recipes.
We believe that classical music can be a powerfully positive presence in a community, and we hope to improve the quality of life in our neighborhood by providing affordable and convenient access to live performances, as well as sparking new romances between uptown locals and live chamber music. So say hello! Bring your ideas and dreams for music in Inwood. We will listen closely.
