‘Music With A View’ Coming Up This Friday!
Just a heads up that our FREE performance at The Flea Theater’s Music With A View festival is coming up next Friday, May 25th at 8PM! String players from SYZYGY will join the group’s Artistic Director, Danielle Eva Schwob, and her band for a large scale performance of songs from her EP, Overloaded.
A free two-week concert series, Music With A View is devoted to the discovery of new, fresh sound created and performed by contemporary musicians. Each event features the works of 2-3 emerging and/or mid-career composers and is followed by an open discussion between the artists and the audience.
As part of her Con Edison Musician’s Residency, Danielle spent the past several months working on new arrangements of her songs for string quartet and rock band. She is excited to present some of these arrangements for the first time at The Flea Theater. She will be joined for the performance by Frank Tyl (piano/percussion), Rick Martinez (drums), Rick Ippolito (bass), Deen Anbar (guitar), Patti Kilroy (violin), Maya Bennardo (violin), Erin Wight (viola) and Mike Midlarsky (cello).
In addition to music by our own artistic director, the show also features work by Michael Lytle and John Supko with a post show discussion moderated by Randall Woolf. Funding is provided by the Aaron Copland Fund for Music. More information on the 2012 Music With A View roster can be found here.
