Jonah Bokaer

Jonah Bokaer’s engaging performance, REPLICA, will be held in the Museum’s Copeland Sculpture Garden. Through the use of videos and still images, REPLICA creates situations that could not exist in physical space. Bokaer has cultivated a new form of choreography with a structure that relies on visual art and design, and his aim is to transform notions of how the public sees and understands dance. He completed a dual degree in visual and media arts at the New School in New York City while dancing with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.  His work has been presented at MASS MoCA, MoMA PS1, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Institut Valenciá d’Art Modern in Spain, among many others nationally and abroad.

Concerts on Kentmere: Pyxis Piano Quartet @ Delaware Art Museum

Pyxis Piano Quartet performs chamber 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.”

Each concert begins with a short curator talk exploring connections with the collection.  The Thronson Café serves drinks and light fare before each concert; coffee and desserts are served at intermission.

Bang on a Can All-Stars

“A fiercely aggressive group, combining the power and punch of a rock band with the precision and clarity of a chamber ensemble.” – The New York Times

Formed in 1992, the Bang on a Can All-Stars are recognized worldwide for their ultra-dynamic live performances and recordings of today’s most innovative music. Freely crossing the boundaries between classical, jazz, rock, world and experimental music, this six-member amplified ensemble has consistently forged a distinct category-defying identity, taking music into uncharted territories. Performing each year throughout the U.S. and internationally, the All-Stars have shattered the definition of what concert music is today.

Together, the All-Stars have worked in unprecedented close collaboration with some of the most important and inspiring musicians of our time, including Steve Reich, Ornette Coleman, Burmese  circle drum master Kyaw Kyaw Naing, Tan Dun, DJ Spooky, and many more. The group’s celebrated projects include their landmark recordings of Brian Eno’s ambient classic Music for Airports and Terry Riley’s In C, as well as live performances with Philip Glass, Meredith Monk, Don Byron, Iva Bittova, Thurston Moore, Owen Pallett and others. The All-Stars were awarded Musical America’s Ensemble of the Year and have been heralded as “the country’s most important vehicle for contemporary music” by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Recent project highlights include the premiere performances and recording of Julia Wolfe’s Pulitzer Prize winning Anthracite Fields for the All-Stars and guest choir, the record release of Wolfe’s acclaimed Steel Hammer, featuring Trio Mediaeval, plus a brand new staged collaboration with SITI Company and director Anne Bogart; Field Recordings, a major new multi-media project and CD/DVD featuring over 20 commissioned works by Tyondai Braxton, Mira Calix, Anna Clyne, Bryce Dessner, Florent Ghys, Michael Gordon, Jóhann Jóhannsson, David Lang, Christian Marclay, Steve Reich, Todd Reynolds, Julia Wolfe, and more; the world premiere, performances, and recording of Steve Reich’s 2×5 including a sold-out performance at Carnegie Hall; the world premiere of The Lord in the Clouds, a new collaboration featuring Chinese superstar singer Gong Linna and the group’s multiple visits to China for the Beijing Music Festival and Hong Kong Arts Festival. With a massive repertoire of works written specifically for the group’s distinctive instrumentation and style of performance, the All-Stars have become a genre in their own right. The All-Stars record on Cantaloupe Music and have released past recordings on Sony, Universal and Nonesuch.

“An engaging exploration of what can be achieved by bringing ancient and modern into creative fusion.” – Jazzwise

Black String, based on Korean traditional music and improvisational music kind of jazz, attempts to create a unique language through Asian intuition and musical idiom. Black String aims to seek a new sound that can internalize a variety of musical expression in traditional music, as well as harmonize with other expression in world music. They were founded in 2011 Korea-UK cultural exchange program titled “UK Connection” project and have been performing at Jarasum International Jazz Festival (South Korea) and London Jazz Festival (UK) collaborating with UK artists; Tim Garland, John Turville, Asaf Sirkis and Gwilym Simcock and they are performing many more world renowned festivals and venues. Amplified and burst sound of Geomun-go, fierce quake of Korean traditional percussion, and unpredictable melody of jazz guitar will grasp all your senses.

The Crossing

Photograph by Christian Stewart

“The Crossing…imbues the music with both energy and awe.” – Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

The Crossing is a professional chamber choir conducted by Donald Nally and dedicated to new music. It is committed to working with creative teams to make and record new, substantial works for choir – most often addressing social issues – with the possibility of changing the way we think about writing for choir, singing in choir, and listening to music for choir.

Highly sought-after for collaborative projects, The Crossing’s first such partnership was as the resident choir of the Spoleto Festival in Italy, in 2007. Since then, collaborators include the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), American Composers Orchestra, Network for New Music, Lyric Fest, PRISM Saxophone Quartet, Beth Morrison Projects, Pig Iron Theatre Company, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Mostly Mozart Festival, National Gallery of Art, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum, Institute for Advanced Study, Carnegie Hall, National Sawdust, and Northwestern University. The Crossing holds an annual residency at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center in Big Sky, Montana. The Crossing has presented more than 60 commissioned world premieres, including works by Michael Gordon, John Luther Adams, David Lang, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Gavin Bryars, Ted Hearne, Caroline Shaw, David T. Little, Robert Maggio, Gabriel Jackson, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, and Hans Thomalla.

With a commitment to recording its commissions, The Crossing has issued 14 releases, receiving a Grammy Award for Best Choral Performance in 2018, its second nomination in as many years. The Crossing, with Donald Nally, is the American Composers Forum’s 2017 Champion of New Music. They are the recipients of the 2015 Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence, three ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming, and the Dale Warland Singers Commission Award from Chorus America.

Danny Green Trio

“Music as beautiful as beautiful music can be.” – Jazz da Gama

A rising force on the jazz scene and an award-winning Origin Records recording artist, pianist and composer Danny Green has distinguished himself with his beautifully articulated touch and melodically charged sensibility. His original compositions – a vivid blend of jazz, classical, and Brazilian elements – delights critics and audiences across the country and around the world. Green’s stellar trio, which includes bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm, performs Green’s original compositions, jazz standards, and Brazilian classics. Green’s group has twice received Best Jazz Album at the San Diego Music Awards and nominated Album of the Year. Their latest album, Altered Narratives, remained on the Jazz Week Top 50 chart for 15 weeks and was selected as one of the “Top 30 New Releases” by Public Radio International’s “Jazz After Hours” program.
