“Kendrick is not just a timekeeper, he is a musician with big ears and a great imagination.” — Herbie Hancock

“Kendrick Scott has become the Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, and Tony Williams of his generation,” says the renowned trumpeter and bandleader Terence Blanchard of his longtime drummer. “He’s a brilliant mind bringing innovation to the music at the same time as creating a safe place for young talent to develop and grow.”

Step Afrika! – School Show
Apr 12 @ 10:30 am

Step Afrika! is the world’s first professional company dedicated to stepping where dancers create extraordinary performances using their bodies as instruments.

The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence

Step Afrika! uses body percussion and dance to create a lively visual interpretation of painter Jacob Lawrence’s iconic “Migration series.” Lawrence’s paintings depict the Great Migration of African Americans from the rural south to cities in the North, Midwest and West between World War I and World War II. Step Afrika! has used selections from the “Migration Series” as inspiration for a moving concert depicting this seminal moment in American history. This performance is presented as a partnership between the Delaware Art Museum, the Grand Opera House, and Delaware State University.

ABOUT THE 2018 PERFORMANCE SERIES

The Delaware Art Museum’s performance series features bold, adventurous works from a variety of art forms. With a focus on social justice and cutting edge creative performance, this series brings artists to Delaware who are pushing creative boundaries and responding to present day events in innovative ways. Performances will take place on the Museum’s campus and out in the community.

A Century of Artistry inspired by the works of John Ruskin and Andrew Wyeth

7:30 p.m. Curator talk by Margaretta Frederick

Robert Schumann – Piano Quartet in C Minor (1829)
Astor Piazzolla – Selections for Piano Quartet (arranged by Mazzocchi)
Alexandre Tansman – “Suite – divertissement” (1929)

Pyxis Piano Quartet was founded in 2009 to perform chamber music concerts that include works from the sonata, duo, and trio repertoire as well as traditional and contemporary masterpieces for piano quartet.

Compelling, engaging and informative, the vibrant performances of Pyxis Piano Quartet have become increasingly sought after in the mid-Atlantic region. The Philadelphia Inquirer has described Pyxis as “excellent,” and Christine Facciolo (deartsinfo.com) stated in a recent review “balance, ensemble, superb intonation and sensitive interpretation characterized this performance.”
