Blowing in the New Year, Dancing for the Earth, Englewinds
This ensemble of winds, piano & percussion will be joined by Flamenco dancer, Eva Conti in a program of opera and dance sure to bring in the Jewish New Year in style! Music by Bizet, Ohno, Kriegler, and Davol.
Englewinds performs music of living composers and specializes in music that focuses on the environment. Englewinds concerts promote the awareness of environmental concerns. Since 1998 the ensemble has performed concerts to open a nature conservancy, to celebrate a Peace labyrinth, to protest noise pollution and overbuilding in New Jersey’s wetlands, to heighten awareness of Lenape Native American history, to call attention to diminishing turtle habitat, and to introduce young audiences to sounds of the rainforest and NJ meadowlands.
Director Sarah Davol, has a passion for both music and nature. While protesting development of wetlands in Teaneck, NJ in 1998, she commissioned music by composers to call attention to the impending development, and Englewinds performed a concert to bring this music to the public. Since then, the ensemble of outstanding musicians has continued to specialize in commissioning and performing music that focuses on the environment. Every Englewinds concert promotes awareness of a community-based environmental organization and/or an environmental concern. To learn more about Englewinds’ visit: http://www.englewinds.com/
