The radar is showing rain midway through the State Park concert, so we have to cancel. We're sorry we don't get to play for everyone today, but we're looking forward to the concerts for the rest of the week in and around Jamaica! Have a great rain day, everyone!
Unfortunately, there's a possibility that tonight's Jamaica State Park concert will be rained out. We'll make the final call at 4PM, so check back then! (Cross your fingers for the storms to pass quickly...)
The fabulous NakedEye Ensemble will be at the Jamaica Town Hall tonight at 7PM. This is a show you don't want to miss. Reserve your tickets!
"An eclectic eight-member electro-acoustic ensemble with classical, rock, and jazz DNA, award-winning NakedEye Ensemble commissions and performs seminal works by cross-over and cutting-edge composers. Presenting music of the imagination utilizing acoustic, electric, toy, kitchen, and noise-making instruments, NakedEye’s body of repertoire reflects the group’s mission to innovate and explore musical expression outside of convention. From notated works to guided improvisations for flexible instrumentation, the group has established a new music presence in its home city from which it collaborates with composers and performers to import and export musical works in a rich, ongoing artistic exchange. NakedEye believes in the power of new music to surprise, uplift, and change."
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Time’s Illusion is a collaborative commissioning project between NakedEye Ensemble and The National Watch and Clock Museum in Columbia, PA (the largest specialized museum of horology in the U.S.). The museum contains not only a plethora of physical time pieces, but an incredible richness in the variety of sounds used to keep time over the centuries. It is also a place to reflect on Time as a magic act, an illusion (Einstein) of constant forward motion when perception tells a different story. To tell that story, the six composers commissioned for the project used recorded clock sounds from the museum’s collection as triggers for creative exploration in their work.
This concert promises to open your ears (and fill the Town Hall stage!) in ways you never imagined! Reserve your tickets now.
