The series is curated by violinist Michelle Ross, and Florilegium special guests include Soprano Susanna Phillips, violinist Alexi Kenney, and more.
After a sold out first season at Eleventh Street Arts [46-06 11th St., Long Island City, NY 11101] in 16/17, this multidisciplinary series is thrilled to present an evening of chamber music amidst the flowers. The exhibition on display, Florilegium, explores Nature across the disciplines of painting, illustration, sculpture, and floral design, and is curated by painter Katie G. Whipple. The concert will feature songs by Poulenc, Debussy and Faure, with Metropolitan Opera Soprano Susanna Phillips and pianistRenana Gutman, a new work written by Ross, and Schubert’s sublime Cello Quintet. The evening’s magnificent artists also include violin/violists Alexi Kenney andAlex Fortes, cellists Sujin Lee and Paul Wiancko.
Michelle Ross performed the complete solo Bach cycle at the Eleventh Street Arts gallery in 2015, which became the catalyst for Chamber Music @ Eleventh Street Arts. The gallery has made Ross its Resident Musician, and in addition to curating this series, she uses the gallery as her composition studio, lecturing, and developing musical collaborations with visual artists from the Grand Central Atelier. Past season musicians include cellist Jay Campbell of the JACK Quartet, pianist Conor Hanick, cellist Fred Sherry, with music spanning from Orlando Gibbons to Matthias Pintscher.
Tickets for Chamber Music @ Eleventh Street Arts are $25, and may be purchased viaEleventh Street Arts, directly from eventbrite or by calling 718-361-6357. Seating is limited and refreshments will be served.
This unique series combining the worlds of visual arts and classical music has been featured by the Epoch Times. The concerts are an intersection between two very specific genres of art: collaborations include exhibit-specific concerts, commissioned compositions, and engaging Q&A between audience members, artists, and musicians.
Curating concerts is something that comes naturally to Ross, a consummate artist and intuitive thinker who launched her own recording and performance project of the Complete Sonatas and Partitas of Bach. Coinciding with her album of the complete cycle by Albany Records, Ross performed the complete solo Bach cycle in 33 public spaces throughout New York City ranging from a Brooklyn firehouse to a veterans hospital in the Bronx. Using each day “as a personal meditation on one of the 27 movements,” you can follow her journey on her blog, discoveringbach.com.
