Anthony de Mare, piano

Liaisons: Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano, is the latest initiative of pianist Anthony de Mare. This landmark commissioning and concert project perfectly expresses his vision to expand both the repertoire and the audience for contemporary music. As creator, performer and co-producer (with Rachel Colbert) of The Liaisons Project, de Mare has brought together many of todays most highly regarded emerging and established composers to create a solo piano piece based on a Sondheim song. Exclusive new works from Steve Reich, Nico Muhly, DBR, Mark Anthony Turnage, Mason Bates, Ethan Iverson, Gabriel Kahane, and William Bolcom, among others, bring the work of musical theater maestro Stephen Sondheim 50 into the concert hall while spanning the classical contemporary, jazz, film, theater and indie worlds. The 2013-14 season will see the addition of four new works to complete the project by Wynton Marsalis, Duncan Sheik, Andy Akiho and Jherek Bischoff.

Anthony de Mare is internationally recognized pianist, known for his versatility, and one of its foremost champions of contemporary music. His provocative and engaging programs have led the New York Times to declare he has transformed the recital format, enlivening them with a theatrical twist more akin to a show than to a recital. In the process, he has inspired the creation of dozens of new works by some of todays most distinguished artists, especially in the speaking-singing pianist genre, which he pioneered over 25 years ago.

Anthony de Mare presides over a piano master class with Williams College music students. During this class the audience is on hand for student performances, followed by the musical guidance from a master of the piano. The master class is held on April 9 at 4:15pm in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall.

But his most important and meaningful relationship was with Miles Davis.

Wallace was mentored by Miles Davis after Miles heard him in 1983 at his birthday gala performance in Carnegie Hall. Their association peaked when Miles chose Wallace to share the stage at his historic performance in Montreux in 1991. After Davis died, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter, Tony Williams and Roney banded together and toured the world in tribute.

We sing to lift people up, to inspire them and touch them with our music in ways that genres apart from Gospel cant. We are open to all audiences and hope to encourage people to allow music to become a healing and divine part of their lives. We believe that our voices are meant to serve the purpose of spreading a ministry of love and by singing, we are allowed to minister vocally. Singing gives us hope and strength and we hope that our audiences can experience these same feats through listening.

Small Jazz Ensembles

This concert ofSmall Jazz Ensemblespromises many musical delights.

If solo jazz aspires to the highest form of individualism, and if big band jazz embodies the soul of unbridled but organized expression, the small jazz ensemble is a rich gumbo that can taste like either big band or solo jazz. A genre in and of itself, the small band configuration is ideal for bringing together musicians of many levels in a happy coexistence. The accomplished improviser can polish skills and push on into uncharted territory, while the neophyte gets the hang of things, waiting for the right moment to step out in front to experience an exhilarating brief foray into the fast rushing stream of musical creation. Sink or swim, the small jazz group challenges and thrills thoroughly.

Artist Associate in Trombone and Co-DirectorJohn Wheeler, whose recording credits include many of the biggest acts in the music business today, trains an ensemble that explores the classic standards. The second group is mentored byAvery Sharpe, Artist Associate in Jazz Bass, and Co-Director.

Bill T. Jones and Anne Bogart: A Rite

Bill T. Jones and Anne Bogart, join forces for A Rite, a work that celebrates the 100th anniversary of The Rite of Spring. Igor Stravinskys groundbreaking masterpiece and celebrated collaboration with choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky was so revolutionary at the time of its Paris premiere that it incited a riot, and A Rite attempts to imagine the consequence of hearing the piece played for the very first time with a libretto that pulls from the diaries of World War I veterans, Stravinskys score, the writings of physicist Brian Greene, and many other sources.
A Rite is the alchemy of two communities a dance company and a theater companyencountering the legacy of Stravinskys Rite of Spring one hundred years after its birth. The reverberations felt in the works vast wake are woven through world wars, the formation and disintegration of nations, the birth of global culture and scientific changes that did nothing less than alter the way we live now.
An intriguing, intelligent, insightful dance theater piece.
