Inner Dialogues: After a solo set by jazz and world-music improviser and composer Guy Mintus (piano), Mintus will unite with virtuoso clarinetist Mark Dover for an evening of fertile cross-stylistic collaboration, including improvisations and the presentation of new, original works.
BLUEPRINTS unites pianists from different musical genres for eclectic concerts that present traditional classical music alongside contemporary works (including premieres), jazz and free improvisation. Co-founded by Daniel Anastasio and Erika Dohi, these unusually varied programs are each inspired by an aesthetic theme or blueprint. In Visible Roads, co-created with Metropolis Ensemble, represents its first major artistic collaboration with another performing organization, with the goal of enriching the community of pianists, composers, and instrumentalists alike through creating and fostering new collaborative relationships.
