A Concert by David Schroeder and Combo Nuvo Trio is set for Sunday, Feb 12 at 3:00pm in the Greenwich Arts Council, Meeting Room, Second Floor.
Director of the Jazz Studies Program at NYU, Dr. David Schroeder will perform with Combo Nuvo trio, an international ensemble of professional musicians on February 12 at GAC. The group has traveled widely throughout the world, playing recently with the Mongolian National Symphony.
They perform regularly at the Blue Note in Manhattan. The program of jazz, world and improvised music is designed to create a “music landscape” which derives from the current exhibition in the Bendheim Gallery URBAN LANDSCAPE, curated by prominent artist and art historian Ellen Colcord, which explores the experience of living in NYC as interpreted by eight very different artists.
This rich blend of acoustic guitar, percussion, bass flute, and soprano saxophone will be joined with Schroeder playing the unique Mongolian Ever Buree instrument whose sound is seldom heard in western music.
Ellen Colcord and David Schroeder will be available after the 3:00 pm concert to talk with the audience about both the exhibition, which includes painting, sculpture, mixed-media and video installations, and the musical program.
Concert is free, but reservations are required; seating is limited and on a first come basis. Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Greenwich Arts Council is located at 299 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich. For more information call 203-862-6754 or go to www.greenwichartscouncil.org.
David Schroeder playing the Ever Buree, a folkloric musical instrument from Mongolia that is fabricated from the horn of an antelope. While the instrument was designed to play traditional Mongolian music, Schroeder has adapted a jazz and world approach on the instrument that listeners describe as wistful and meditative.
