Ladder To The Moon, Redux – Thursday September 10.
Some say Redo and some say Redux.
We are repeating our FAC performance of original music inspired by the art and life of Georgia O’Keeffe, and that is the crux.
When I started writing the music for Ladder To The Moon, I gave up any ideas of trying to please anyone. I just wanted to write what I thought, felt and heard playing in my head when considering Georgia O’Keeffe and her art…for the satisfaction of doing it. To have people actually like my creation and respond with enthusiastic standing applause was an unexpected bonus. My heartfelt thanks go out to all of you for your support and encouragement.
From Sold Out To Break Out
As many of you know, our premiere concert of Ladder To The Moon at The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center in July was sold out. My apologies if you were turned away. I am delighted to tell you we have been asked to repeat the concert On Thursday September 10. Of course I said yes and we are going to also break out some new music and a new band.
Introducing: The FluteDaddy Chamber Jazz Sextet
The sextet features keyboardist Jana Lee Ross, guitarist Alan Joseph, cellist Norah Joy Clydesdale, bassist Marc Neihof, percussionist Stefan Flores and yours truly on flute.
More New Originals
The September 10 concert is a reprise of the popular Ladder To The Moon concert with new music added. FluteDaddy will repeat audience favorites and premiere additional compositions and all new arrangements played in Chamber Jazz style – a fusion of jazz, pop and orchestral music.
Play It Again Georgia
If you enjoyed the first concert, come back for new music and new sounds. While the melodies and themes of the music are the same, each piece has been re-arranged to add the rich voice of cello to the harmonies, new texture to the rhythms and some interesting new passages. We will also play new O’Keeffe-inspired originals, and of course with jazz improvisation no two performances are ever the same. Shorter Sets –
The sextet will play two short sets with an intermission. Complimentary viewing of the Eloquent Objects exhibit is included. An opportunity to enjoy some of Georgia O’Keeffe’s work and some great southwestern art before the show closes. Come join us for some fun.
