Performance: Daniel Kelly's 'Rakonto Wave Hill' - Wave Hill
Add to Calendar 27-04-2014 27-04-2014 15 Performance: Daniel Kelly's 'Rakonto Wave Hill' This concert features the world premiere of "Rakonto Wave Hill," a jazz suite commissioned by and created for Wave Hill by composer/pianist Daniel Kelly. Written for and performed by his ensemble, the piece ingeniously weaves the recorded voices of Bronx residents into its sonic world as they share their thoughts on nature and the ways they find it in the urban community of the Bronx today. Wave Hill is one of five New York institutions participating in the Rakonto project. Among them are Flushing Town Hall, in celebration of the ethnic diversity of that community, and the Long Island Children's Museum, addressing the effects of Hurricane Sandy one year later. One hour, no intermission. Daniel Kelly's "Rakonto Wave Hill" is part of The New York State Presenters Network Presenter-Artist Partnership Project, made possible through a regrant from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=158412 Wave Hill true DD/MM/YYYY

Venue Description: See natural beauty at its finest at Wave Hill, the 28-acre public garden and cultural center in the Bronx. Overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades, Wave Hill's true view lies in the park's magnificent gardens and landscapes. Horticulture and the arts programs for children, teenagers, and teachers are hosted by Wave Hill. Its grounds serve as living laboratories for science exploration. A memorable and scenic venue location, the Wave Hill House, built in 1843, is available for meetings, conferences, celebrations, and photo shoots. Wave Hill House was home to many celebrated icons, including Theodore Roosevelt and Mark Twain.

On weekends from 10am-1pm, the whole family can enjoy with a naturally creative Family Art Project. Wave Hill's visual arts program presents artworks in the galleries and on the grounds that engage the public in a dialogue with nature, culture, and site.
