Heading out to Hawaii for their first time, Hub New Music spends a week in residence at the University of Hawaii at Manao. Over the week, Hub will be once again joined by Korjiro Umezaki, shakuhachi, to present workshops and concerts to the University’s community.
Hub New Music (HNM) is in residence at the Blue Sage Arts Center in Paonia, CO. HNM will present two concerts for the Center‘s Modern Music Festival: Matsuri and Soul House. Programming features Kojiro Umezaki (of Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble), Shakuhachi and Susan Ellinger, Piano. Concert details can be found here.
Hub New Music teams up with Urbanity Dance for a special choreographed performance of Robert Honstein‘s Soul House at the Peabody Essex Museum.
Unfolding over nine movements, Robert Honstein’s Soul House is an extended elegy to the composer’s childhood home. Glittering light through a “Bay Window,” jovial romps in the “Backyard” and curious introspection in a “Secret Place” are translated from memory into movement through the cutting-edge artistry of Urbanity Dance. This exploration of childhood also includes works by composers Anna Clyne, Judd Greenstein and Daniel Wohl, with choreography by Haley Day and lighting design by Mary Ellen Stebbins.
