Upcoming Events

Frederic Rzewski solo piano

Classical, Solo Performance
The highly respected composer and virtuosic pianist Frederic Rzewski is recognized both for his innovative works and for his strong political convictions. A founding member of the groundbreaking improvisational collective Musica Elettronica Viva, Rzewski's pieces often bridge the gap between classical music and avant-garde jazz. Now based in Brussels, this major figure will make a rare solo appearance in the U.S. for a single Miami concert. Rzewski studied composition with Roger Sessions and Milton Babbitt, with composer Luigi Dallapiccola in Florence, Italy and with Elliot Carter in Berlin. In 1966 in Rome, Rzewski co-founded the seminal ensemble Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV) with fellow American composer-musicians Richard Teitelbaum and Alvin Curran. ["Mr. Rzewski, who at 78 is flinty and opinionated yet warm, is one of many great American composers whom a vast majority of America has never heard, or even heard of. But of that group, he may be the one with the most to say to us now." The New York Times, May 2016]

"CITIZEN" by Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group

Modern
Noted NYC-based choreographer Reggie Wilson brings his dance company, Fist and Heel Performance Group, to Miami-Dade County Auditorium On.Stage Black Box to perform CITIZEN. In this work, Wilson asks, "What does it mean to belong?" and "What does it mean to NOT want to belong?", core questions of Reggie's investigations for this new evening-length dance work. In CITIZEN, Wilson drills down into the human desire to belong with exponentially expanding questions: "Do the injustices in today's America engender a feeling of belonging? What supports belonging? Is belonging solely something internal, inside the individual? Is a sense of belonging or not belonging, a private or a public matter?" CITIZEN promises to engage and compel while igniting perspectives on our compassion and humanity. ["Citizen drove its heart-stoppingly relentless message home without firing a shot or saying a word." —The Philadelphia Enquirer]

James "Blood" Ulmer

Blues, Jazz
Jazz and guitar legend James Blood Ulmer is among the most distinctive and influential free jazz electric guitarists to emerge in the past four decades. He has worked and recorded with Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, Joe Henderson, Arthur Blythe, David Murray, Ronald Shannon Jackson, Vernon Reid and George Adams as bandleader and sideman. Ulmer is recognized as a central figure in the post-fusion movements of 1970s and 1980s jazz. Yet within this experimental framework, his guitar playing and songwriting incorporate blues, funk, and rock idioms, making it difficult to categorize his innovative musical forms. ["The missing link between Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery on one hand, between P-Funk and Mississippi Fred McDowell on the other." Greg Tate, Village Voice]
