Spyro Gyra at the Park Theatre
Feb 25 @ 8:00 pm

Spyro Gyra is an unlikely story of a group with humble beginnings in Buffalo, NY who has continued to reach an international audience over forty years, resulting in sales of over 10 million albums and having played over five thousand shows on five continents. They have accomplished this due to a forward looking approach combined with the work ethic of an underdog, always challenging themselves to do something new while never resting on past success. It has proven to be a recipe for longevity for this jazz group while music has gone in and out of styles in ever shorter cycles.

Don’t miss their only RI appearance on March 25th at the Park Theatre!

4th Annual Sistema Side by Side Gala
Mar 13 @ 6:00 pm

On March 13 the Longy School of Music of Bard College will celebrate another year as a leader in progressive music education in grand style at the fourth annual Sistema Side by Side Celebration, under the baton of Jorge Soto. A very special guest will be announced shortly.

The celebration will showcase Longy’s social mission to prepare students to make a difference in the world, featuring the Sistema Side by Side Orchestra. The orchestra pairs students from aged 7 to 15 from El Sistema-inspired programs throughout Massachusetts with Longy’s Conservatory Orchestra musicians in rehearsals and performances with nationally renowned conductors and guest artists.

The program launched publicly in grand style in March of 2014 with an open rehearsal of the orchestra under the direction of Gustavo Dudamel, Grammy Award-winning music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic in MIT’s Kresge Auditorium. Since then, the orchestra has worked with members of the Simón Bolívar String Quartet, Opera Legend Frederica von Stade and given an enthusiastically received performance for Maestro José Antonio Abreu, founder of El Sistema.

The evening will include the presentation of the Leonard Bernstein Lifetime Achievement Award for the Elevation of Music in Society. The award was authorized by the Bernstein family and established by Longy in 2000 and has celebrated great artists such as Gustavo Dudamel, Eileen Farrell, Marilyn Horne, Leonard Slatkin, Mark Morris, Leon Botstein, Frederica von Stade and Gunther Schuller.

A celebratory dinner will follow the concert. Tickets to the event are available at www.longy.edu/gala. Proceeds from the gala will support Longy’s ongoing work as a leader in the El Sistema-inspired movement in the U.S. and scholarships and teaching assistantships for Longy Conservatory students.

Ann Wilson of Heart has announced her 2017 20-date solo tour that includes a stop at Rhode Island’s Park Theatre.  The full itinerary and trailer are on her website: www.annwilsonofheart.com.

“The stage is a magical place where I can be beautifully in and out of control, where I can build a fire and then jump into it,” says the esteemed and pioneering Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend, known for her force-of-nature vocals.  “The stage is where I have always lived; where I’ve expressed my deepest emotions and supreme joys.” Wilson continues: “I suppose I am addicted to it. I’ve never been much good at talking, but I can sing, and when I sing I connect with people in a much deeper, higher way.”

What will fans experience at these shows?  “People can expect the unexpected in 2017,” Wilson says. “A beautiful, classy set with an elegant, artistic production…The music will be a mix of songs that have powered my life; iconic soul stirring covers, songs from my years of solo work and the unforgettable songs of Heart.”

Musicians on board for the tour include Craig Bartock on guitar (Heart member for a dozen years, who also performed in the Ann Wilson Thing for two years) from San Francisco; Andy Stoller on bass (the Ann Wilson Thing member for two years) from Seattle; Denny Fongheiser on drums and percussion (Heart member in the 1990’s for two years) from Los Angeles.  As for the name for the upcoming tour, Wilson explains, “is to give people a point of recognition; to help people understand who I am and where I came from.”

The Ann Wilson of Heart dates follow the release of Heart’s critically acclaimed 2016Beautiful Broken” album and summer headlining tour with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Cheap Trick, along with Heart solo shows before and after. “Heart is always evolving, changing,” says Wilson. “It is a living organism. Right now it’s in a cocoon of metamorphosis, and we will see what emerges when the time is right.”
