Ruston Ropac performs with the contemporary vocal ensemble Ekmeles in this concert.

Event Description:

“Ekmeles is a vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of new and rarely-heard works, and gems of the historical avant garde. New York is home to a vibrant instrumental New Music scene, with a relative paucity of vocal music. Ekmeles was founded to fill the gap by presenting new a cappella repertoire for solo voices, and by collaborating with these instrumental ensembles. The New Yorker calls them a "brilliant young ensemble... defining a fresh and virtuosic American sound."

On March 9, 2018, Ekmeles will perform new works by ICEBERG composers Stephanie Ann Boyd, Victor Baez, Derek Cooper, Max Grafe, and Jonathan Russ.  Also on the program is a work by one of the winners of ICEBERG'S third annual call for scores.  Like every ICEBERG event, this concert features an open bar happy hour beginning at 7:30, and a discussion with the composers and performers after the show.“

From Classics to Contemporary: A Fundraiser for Opera Theatre of Montclair

Event Description:

“Opera Theatre of Montclair will present a unique concert featuring operatic excerpts composed within the last 50 years complemented by the classics that may have inspired the composers. This event will take place at a remarkable Upper Montclair home owned by a noted arts philanthropist and collector of 20th and 21st century art. This gallery-like modernist home with excellent acoustics will serve as the perfect backdrop for OTM's artists to sing a range of repertoire - from Puccini to new works by young, up-and-coming composers in the field of opera. The premise is to match a newer work with a classic work (similar tonalities, themes, settings, etc.).

Come support OTM's new season while taking tours of this magnificent home, gardens and awe-inspiring art collection as well as enjoying champagne at the catered reception. Then sit back and watch some of OTM's most beloved artists (and some new faces) perform a diverse and challenging program with a fun and informative narration.

Space is limited: please purchase your tickets no later than Thursday, October 18.

Artists and Repertoire to be announced shortly.

Rebecca Eng, piano

Mia Riker-Norrie, narrator

What is the address of the event?
