Composers Concordance presents its 7th Annual Festival, entitled 'Art of Sound'. Inspired by contemporary art in NYC, the festival consists of five concerts, to be held at a wide array of venues. A compelling statement from Andy Warhol: "I never wanted to be a painter; I wanted to be a tap dancer" serves as the basis for 'Andy Warhol : Tap Dancer', a program featuring the acclaimed tap dancer/body percussionist Max Pollak. 'The Kostabi Effect' focuses on the art and music of our friend and board member, the ever-provocative Mark Kostabi, featuring the CompCord Ensemble. Our 9th Annual Comp-Play-Comp Marathon features no fewer than 25 art-inspired pieces performed by the composers themselves. 'The Art of the Trio' will showcase two exciting ensembles with unusual instrumentations: The Progression Ensemble and The Baseless Ensemble. 'Tuned Squared' takes sound experimentation to the middle of Times Square. As part of the inclusionary mix that audiences have come to associate with Composers Concordance, the 'Art Of Sound' festival presents the music of over forty of today's most innovative composers.

Parthenia Viol Consort Presents Tomb Sonnets – A Concert with Special Guest Vocalist Ryland Angel
Sunday, March 25 at 2:00 PM
The Secret Theatre

The performers will present works for voice and viols by Italian Renaissance masters from the age of the sonnet, including Luca Marenzio, Philippe Verdelot, Jacques Arcadelt, and Cipriano de Rore, and instrumental works by Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli, uncle and nephew whose composing skills were honed at San Marco in Venice, and defined the style of the era. The centerpiece of this concert is the World Premiere of Martin Kennedy’s Tomb Sonnets (2014), three short works for viol consort and countertenor that explore poetic studies of death and burial in sonnets by Petrarch (“Sonnet Found in Laura’s Tomb”, 1348), Keats (“On Visiting the Tomb of Burns”, 1818), and Longfellow (“Sonnet on Dante’s Divina Commedia”, 1866). Tenor and countertenor Ryland Angel will also read sonnets of the period, and all of the performers will offer spoken reflections on the compositions, the instruments, and the process of combining ancient forms and instruments with modern modes of expression.
Tickets are $25, available by calling GEMS at 212-866-0468 or ordering online at http://gemsny.org/events/parthenia. The audience is welcome to enjoy refreshments from The Secret Theatre concessions during the show.
