West Park Presbyterian Church
165 W 86th Street, NYC

On October 22nd, Composers Concordance presents 'All About Spain,' a concert featuring new, flamenco-inspired music and dance at West Park Presbyterian Church on Manhattan's Upper West Side. CompCord String Orchestra will perform with guests including dancer Sonia Olla and singer Ismael Fernández, who are known for bridging the culture of flamenco between Spain and New York City, and third-generation flamenco guitarist Pedro Cortes. Violinist Miranda Cuckson, an "electric interpreter of new music," will premiere a composition by David Soldier. Maestro Scott Jackson Wiley will present music written for the occasion by composers Dan Cooper, Pedro Cortes, Eleanor Cory, Masatora Goya, Peter Jarvis, Debra Kaye, Daniel Palkowski, Gene Pritsker, and David Saperstein.

Staying in rotation for thirty-two years in NYC is a rare feat. In the case of a new music presenting organization, it requires not only diligence and cognizance of achievements of the past, but also an ethic of keeping one's ear to the ground for emerging stylistic and technological developments, as well as talented new composers on the scene. Composers Concordance strives to present contemporary music in innovative ways, with an emphasis on thematic programming. It has also created a record label, Composers Concordance Records, with distribution by Naxos. Directors Gene Pritsker and Dan Cooper co-curate the programs, and lead the CompCord Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra, String Orchestra, and Big Band. Associate Directors are Milica Paranosic, Peter Jarvis, Svjetlana Bukvich, and Melissa Grey. Composers Concordance's overriding vision is to promote contemporary music, composers, and new works as a rightful and respected part of society. Good music, performed and recorded well, pushing the boundaries of sound and composition.

"For the past 30 years, Composers Concordance has been a booster for local composers, through both its concerts across the city and a record label." -The Wall Street Journal. "Enterprising new music organization" -The New York Times. "The Composers Concordance folks are unpredictable and at times refreshingly irreverent in a reverent sort of way....ingenious fun" -Classical-Modern Music Review. "Edgy...boisterous...demanding our attention" -San Diego Story. "These men and women are creating exciting music with elements of jazz, world music and many experimental techniques blended with equal parts classical tradition and playing techniques." -Asbury Park Press. "There is considerable evidence to show that Composers Concordance may be one of the most exciting labels in American contemporary music. -JazzdaGama.

92Y FRIDAYS AT NOON, September 16, noon

Performance: Renowned flamenco dancer Belén Maya accompanied by guitarist Pedro Cortes and singer and percussionist José Moreno explore traditions and experimentalism. 

Discussion and Reading: K. Meira Goldberg, Ninotchka Bennahum, and Michelle Heffner Hayes, editors  
Flamenco on the Global Stage: Historical, Critical, and Analytical Perspectives

Archival Footage: Juana Vargas's La Macarrona

From flamenco’s roots in European courtly dances, to its African tracings, to its embodiment of Spain’s lost Empire, to contemporary voices of rebellion and change, Belén Maya’s choreography and this groundbreaking book articulate new visions.

92Y DIG DANCE WEEKEND SERIES, September 24, 8 pm

Romnia 
Choreographed and Performed by Belén Maya 

Romnia explores the two dimensions of Maya's life: her Gypsy ancestry and her femininity. Romnia, "women" in Romany, is a celebration of Gypsyness, a compassionate, sometimes joyful look at the plight of displaced women, whose laughter and mourning, in Romnia, become movement and beauty.

 My body wants to give life to those black sounds coming from the East, loaded with the sorrow amassed by thousands of displaced people throughout our history.  --Belén Maya

Tickets: 
Fridays at Noon tickets are $10 online or in advance at the 92Y Box Office in the lobby /$15 at the 92Y Box Office on the day of the performance.
