North/South Composers April 24

The North/South Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Max Lifchitz performs new music by composers from Peru and the US

The performers, all excellent…North/South Consonance is a high quality ensemble…The listener was rewarded with a diverting sampler of recent compositional styles””

— New York Times

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, March 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Monday evening April 24, the Grammy-nominated North/South Chamber Orchestra under the direction of its founder Max Lifchitz, prepares to welcome spring with a free-admission concert featuring four inviting and invigorating works by composers from Peru and the US.

The program — postponed from the original March 14 date because of the winterstorm Stella —  will introduce two works especially written for the occasion: Premonitions by New York-based Andrew Thomas and Octatonic Dances by the young Peruvian composer Gonzalo Garrido-Lecca. The recently departed Elizabeth Bell will be remembered with a performance of her Concertino for Chamber Orchestra, a work first performed by the ensemble in 2014. Max Lifchitz's Yellow Ribbons No. 40 will round off the evening.
The event will take place at the intimate but acoustically superior auditorium of Christ & St Stephen's Church (120 West 69th Street) on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The free-admission event will start at 8 PM and end around 9:30 PM. The auditorium is ADA accessible. No tickets or reservations needed.

Since its inception in 1980, the North/South Consonance, Inc. has brought to the attention of the New York City public over 1,000 works by composers hailing from the Americas and elsewhere representing a wide spectrum of aesthetic views. Its activities are made possible in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; Women's Philharmonic Advocacy; the Music Performance Trust Fund; and the generosity of numerous individual donors.

ABOUT THE COMPOSERS AND THEIR MUSIC

Elizabeth Bell (1928-2016) attended Wellesley College and The Juilliard School where she studied with Vittorio Giannini and Peter Mennin. Described by the American Record Guide as "one of our country's leading composers" and by Fanfare Magazine as "a fine composer whose instrumental music is particularly striking," her works for voice, solo instruments, chamber ensembles, and orchestra have been performed throughout the US and abroad.

Her Concertino for Chamber Orchestra is in three contrasting movements. Its musical language balances urban harmonic constructs with a well-defined sense of shape and direction. A recording of this work made in the presence of the composer is scheduled for release in the near future.

Gonzalo Garrido-Lecca incorporates in his style elements of Andean music blending the rich tradition of South American folk music with the latest trends of contemporary concert music. In addition to writing music for dance, theater and film, he has taught at the Music School of the Pontificia Universidad Catolica in his native city of Lima, Peru.

Originally written as a framework for dancers and choreographers the concert version of Octatonic Dances follows the design of a three-movement symphony. The works' title points to the fact that the eight-note scale appears profusely throughout the piece and that the instrumentation of the score involves eight musicians.

Active as composer, pianist and conductor, Max Lifchitz has appeared on concert stages throughout Latin America, Europe and the US. Trained at Juiliiard and Harvard, Lifchitz was awarded the first prize in the 1976 Gaudeamus Competition held in Holland. His creative endeavors have earned the support of the ASCAP, Ford and Guggenheim Foundations.

His Yellow Ribbons No. 40 belongs to an ongoing series of compositions written as homage to the former American hostages in Iran. These compositions represent a personal way of celebrating the
artistic and political freedom so often taken for granted in the West. The tragic events that befell New York City on September 11, 2001 convinced the composer that returning to work on this series begun in the early 1980's was both appropriate and worthwhile. The work is in four movements: Distant Fanfare, Waging Peace, Days of Wrath and Reveries. It was written during the month of January 2005 to mark North/South Consonance's 25th season.

Andrew Thomas studied with Karel Husa at Cornell University; with Nadia Boulanger in Paris; and with Luciano Berio, Elliot Carter, and Otto Luening at Juilliard. He has taught composition at the Pre-College Division of Juilliard School since 1970, directing the Division from 1994 to 2006. A much-sought-after pedagogue, he has lectured in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, the Guangxi Arts College in Nanning. Also active as pianist and conductor, has appeared in Seoul, South Korea, at the helm of the Prime Symphony Orchestra, the Suwon Philharmonic, and the Korean Symphony Orchestra.

Howard Kessler — the composer's husband and artistic associate — writes that Thomas' recently completed Premonitions "pays homage to the Latin music the composer secretly cherished as a teenager. The first movement evokes the tango, the second the bossa nova, and the third uses rhythms of the mambo and the rhumba. There is no percussion in the score, but the ensemble plays traditional Spanish rhythms, and Afro-Cuban drumming patterns. So, the entire band becomes a percussion ensemble."

Now on its 37th consecutive season, the North/South Chamber Orchestra presents a yearly concert series in New York City while maintaining an active recording schedule.

Rent What? Inc. Announces Newest Grand Drape Set Dubbed 'Dark Angel' Now Available for Rent

Rent What? Inc. president, Megan Duckett, announces the newest addition to the firm's rental drapery inventory, a grand drape set dubbed, "Dark Angel".

RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, CA, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rental drapery provider, Rent What? Inc., located in Rancho Dominguez, CA , is happy to announce the newest addition to their rental drapery inventory, dubbed "Dark Angel". The specialty grand drape set is now available for one-time performances, concerts or longer tour rentals.

Rent What? president Megan Duckett states, "We feel this rental drape provides the same beauty and "wow factor" as our Crimson Cabaret Grand drape set in our Timeless and Traditional Drapery Collection. It combines unique design with versatility. The dramatic look lends itself to use in a wide variety of concert set designs in genres ranging from hard rock to pop to country, depending on the design of the additional set elements."

The set includes two bi-parting drapes (making up a Grand Traveler approximately 60' wide). Its design features a sexy, sparkling combination of Black 15oz Encore fabric adorned with Silver Illusion, Black Chrome Illusion, Silver Bullion Fringe, and most dramatically, a repeated "angel wing" motif in rhinestone applique. Sister company Sew What? Inc. designed and manufactured the rental drape set.

The Dark Angel drape set was recently showcased at a photo and video shoot in Los Angeles, California. The firm's management felt, "where better to display the drape set than the theatre of the historic Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, a delicately restored, 1,600-seat movie palace from the 1920s?"

The Theatre at Ace Hotel showcases a grand entrance, leading to the intricately detailed theater with a vaulted ceiling with thousands of tiny mirrors that glimmer when lit. The theatre’s awe-inspiring craftmanship is truly a true feast for the eyes and the creative spirit – which according to Rent What? president Duckett is not unlike the new "Dark Angel" grand drape set. Duckett predicts, "I'm sure that this amazing rental drapery set will be flying out the doors in the upcoming tour season."

Rent What? additionally has a variety of other rental options, including specialty drapery, masking drapes, lift systems, hardware and automation equipment, and pipe and drape, making it a popular rental provider for promoters and organizers.

Increasing usage of headphones and Wi-Fi & Bluetooth enabled devices such as tablets, laptops and smartphones are expected to propel growth. The industry is using advanced processes and materials to improve quality of the loudspeakers, thus to provide a good value to its customers. For instance, in 2015 Sony released a LED light bulb speaker in the Japanese market and this Life Space UX concept line came with a remote control, a Bluetooth speaker and a smartphone application built into its frame. With a remote-control dial and a smartphone application, it can be paired via NFC (Near Field Connectivity), and either of the connection can be used to direct playback of loudspeaker and brightness of the bulb.

Most of the focus is on the micro & small speakers and on the rising innovative designs to produce high sound from tiny devices. While the total creation form is shrinking, customer expectation for high quality audio, loudness and low frequency extension has not changed. The emphasis on development of low frequency extension in the tiny devices is leading to new methods such as ‘hybrid’ diaphragm with compound agreement across the product surface. For instance, Sony announced in May 2014, that its portable Bluetooth wireless speakers: SRS-X2 and SRS-X3 will offer a sophisticated bass output in a sleek definitive outline design.

The main demand for the loudspeaker market is witnessed across several applications such as commercial, home audio and consumer. Major product segments include satellite, sound bar, subwoofer, in-ceiling, in-wall, multimedia, outdoor and home theatre. The soundbar speaker has wireless technologies such as Bluetooth, NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity embedded into it.

Customers such as business owners and residential users, install subwoofer and satellite speakers for home, leisure and hospitality sector which gives them better sound experience. They are used to produce low pitch audio frequencies. The quality of audio produced from these speakers is offering growth opportunities to subwoofer and satellite speakers in the loudspeaker market. Increase in the demand for connected and smarter devices in the hospitality segment might be a better opportunity for wireless loudspeaker market share.

Harmful health effects on children & other user groups and the operating frequency rules and regulations by the government are the major factors which may hinder the loudspeaker market size. These factors possibly will not have long-term adverse effects on the customers due to the technological advancements.
