SOMETHING’S COMING:  THE SONGS OF LEONARD BERNSTEIN
August 15, 2018, New York City
Born on August 25, 1918, Leonard Bernstein was a uniquely and monstrously talented American composer, pianist, conductor, writer and music lecturer.  He conducted leading orchestras, most notably the New York Philharmonic.  His music spanned multiple genres—sometimes in the same work.  I consider West Side Story and Candide to be masterpieces, each utilizing the American musical theater form, but requiring classically-trained voices.  His plentiful eclectic compositions include Peter Pan, Wonderful Town, On the Town, On the Waterfront, a Mass, Chichester Psalms, three symphonies, a ballet, an opera, film scores, choral works, chamber music and many more.  He was also a noted music lecturer; his famed Harvard lectures can still be found on YouTube.  He won 15 Grammys and was venerated by colleagues, musicians and the public.  EGMP’s Something’s Coming:  The Songs of Leonard Bernstein concert presents vocal works of Bernstein, including those from West Side Story, Candide, On the Town, Peter Pan, Wonderful Town and more.  Artists of the highest caliber in New York City will offer solos, duets and ensembles in honor of Lenny.
THE MUSIC SALON
November 4, 2018, Upper West Side, New York City
THE MUSIC SALON™ provides a community of fellow artists who are committed to accessing their deepest creative selves in a space without judgment. We welcome musicians of any acoustic instrument or genre, but are particularly supportive of the needs of singers. The amazing Richard Gordon accompanies us at The Music Salon™ whenever he’s in town.
THE FLAVOR OF SPAIN™ Part 3: Unsung Songs of Spain
Fall 2018, Midtown West, New York City
THE FLAVOR OF SPAIN™ concert series explores the exotic cultural influences that create the unique sound of Spanish song. Part 3 of the series, “Unsung Songs of Spain,” showcases Spanish composers who are mostly unknown in this country, such as Federico Longàs and Jordi Sabatés, as well as little-heard songs of better-known composers, such as Fernando Obradors. You will be amazed at the beauty and sensuality of this music, some of which you will be hearing for the first time. A dancer will be joining us on this concert to perform an interpretation of Sabatés’ songs!
THE SEPHARDIC WORKSHOP
December 2, 2018, New York City
THE SEPHARDIC WORKSHOP™ explores the rich and moving musical culture of the Sephardim (Spanish Jews). As part of a presentation on this genre we’ll listen to some beautiful live performances and recorded examples of this genre, along with historical information and performance tips for presenting this music expressively and authentically. Everyone will have an opportunity to share a Sephardic song, and to receive coaching if desired.
THE FLAVOR OF SPAIN™, Part 4: NOCHES, NOCHES
Fall-Winter 2018, New York City
NOCHES, NOCHES explores the rich and moving musical culture of the Sephardim (Spanish Jews), and is sung entirely in Ladino. There will be opportunities for audience participation!
CONCERTS FOR HEALING™: The Impossible Dream
Fall-Winter 2018, New York City
THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM is the third concert in the CONCERTS FOR HEALING™ concert series, a multimedia performance series focusing on issues of health and ecology, entertaining through beautiful music while educating about important issues. The Impossible Dream is the counterpart to the Kaleidoscope™ concert, which focused on positive ways we can support ourselves and our communities in being mentally healthy. The Impossible Dream furthers that theme, this time focusing on how we can cultivate the unique human attributes of courage, faith and determination in our lives and keep ourselves courageous, inspired and determined. We want to see people living full out, achieving great things and living their dreams! The concert includes music that encompasses these human experiences through multiple genres for all generations—musical theater, jazz standards and popular songs—and multimedia.
