B.B. King - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
April 16, 2013 - New York

His reign as King of the Blues has been as long as that of any monarch on earth. Yet B.B. King continues to wear his crown well. At age 76, he is still light on his feet, singing and playing the blues with relentless passion. Time has no apparent effect on B.B., other than to make him more popular, more cherished, more relevant than ever. Don't look for him in some kind of semi-retirement; look for him out on the road, playing for people, popping up in a myriad of T.V. commercials, or laying down tracks for his next album. B.B. King is as alive as the music he plays, and a grateful world can't get enough of him.

Opera Dolce presents concert homage to the great Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Gomes - EM Lee Concert Hall
April 16, 2013 - New York

Opera Dolce, a New York based opera company under the direction of Andrew Costello and Pamela Lloyd, will pay homage to Antonio Carlos Gomes (1836 – 1896) with two performances of a concert planned for April, 2013 in Manhattan. Brazilian native Antonio Carlos Gomes was the only non-European to be successful as an operatic composer in Italy during the golden age of opera. Most of his works premiered at La Scala and were performed at major opera houses throughout Europe and South America. Giuseppe Verdi praised Gomes’ music, proclaiming him a ‘musical genius.’ Gomes was arguably the greatest South American composer of the 19th Century. The Brazilian maestro’s music enjoyed great popularity during his lifetime. Today his work has been virtually forgotten outside of Latin America. The last US production of a Gomes opera occurred approximately twenty years ago, when the Washington National Opera staged Il Guarany for Gomes aficionado Placido Domingo. Opera Dolce believes that Gomes’ music should be performed much more frequently to win the recognition it deserves. The concerts will feature highlights from five of Gomes’ major operas: Fosca, Il Guarany, Salvator Rosa, Lo Schiavo and Maria Tudor. Some of these pieces will be receiving their North American premiere. Renowned Brazilian pianist Samuel Kardos will accompany six singers. The Brazilian Endowment for the Arts (BEA) will host a post-performance reception on April 16th at their gallery next door to the performance space. Tickets may be purchased for $25.00 at the door. Concerts dates, times and locations: April 16, 2013, 7:30 PM, EM Lee Concert Hall,244 East 52nd Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, NYC. April 18, 2013, 8:00 PM, Christ and St. Stephen’s Church, 122 West 69th Street, between Broadway and Columbus Avenue, NYC.

Ten-Time Grammy Award Winner Bobby McFerrin Performs spirityouall in its New York Premiere - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center, Concert HAll
April 16, 2013 - Garden City

Ten-time Grammy award winner Bobby McFerrin, best known for Don’t Worry, Be Happy, will present the New York premiere of his latest work, spirityouall, on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) Concert Hall, 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY. Join McFerrin, one of the world’s best vocal innovators and improvisers, for an evening of virtuosic musicianship, community spirit and pure fun. An extremely limited number of tickets remain, so be sure to order your tickets right away at aupac.adelphi.edu to ensure you don’t miss this fantastic entertainer. spirityouall features beloved familiar tunes like "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands" and "Every Time I Feel The Spirit" alongside original songs which explore Bobby's everyday search for grace, wisdom, and freedom. The new material ranges from a celebratory hoedown (“Rest”) to a polemic anthem (“Woe”), to a down and dirty blues setting of Psalm 25:15. This project embraces Bobby's folk, rock, and blues influences without abandoning his fearless improvisational approach or his never-ending exploration of the human voice. He moves seamlessly between lyrics and wordless lines, trading phrases with his band, inviting the audience to sing along. Bobby loves to sing this music, and it shows: spirityouall raises the roof with joyful grooves. spirityouall continues Bobby's life-long quest to integrate all the influences of the musical universe. But as in so many great American tales, sometimes it turns out that everything one is searching for is in one’s own backyard. The project honors the legacy of Bobby's father, the great operatic baritone Robert McFerrin, Sr., the first African-American to sign a contract with the Metropolitan Opera Company and a renowned interpreter of the American Negro Spiritual. " I always thought that someday I'd sing these songs," Bobby says, "and that I'd have to find a way of doing it that was completely different from my father's approach. I think the idea has been kicking around for at least a couple of decades. And it was finally time." Three of the traditional numbers featured on spirityouall—“Every Time I Feel the Spirit,” “Swing Low Sweet Chariot” and “Fix Me Jesus”—also appeared on the senior McFerrin's 1957 album Deep River, but similarities end there. The spirituals are about liberation and courage, the human condition, the pioneering spirit, the search for strength in the face of adversity, and the journey toward a better place, and Bobby's versions reach for new territory. spirityouall is a deeply personal statement for Bobby McFerrin. “I couldn’t do anything without faith," he says. "I couldn’t open up my eyes, I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t sing. What I want everyone to experience at the end of my concerts is…this sense of rejoicing. I don't want the audience to be blown away by what I do, I want them to have this sense of real joy, from the depths of their being. Then you open up a place where grace can come in." Lift your voice, open your heart, and sing along. According to the Los Angeles Times, his “greatest gift to audiences may be transforming a concert hall into a playground, a village center, a joyous space.” Get your tickets now and join Bobby McFerrin and his band for a special evening on Tuesday, April 16 at 7:00 p.m. Celebrating its fifth year, Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center is Long Island’s premier cultural arts venue for entertainment of all kinds. Limited tickets for the Bobby McFerrin concert are on sale now at aupac.adelphi.edu for $45-$55. Information is available at The Lucia and Steven N. Fischer Box Office at (516) 877-4000 or boxoffice@adelphi.edu. The Concert Hall is located on the main level of the Performing Arts Center, adjacent to the Box Office.

RISE - Theatre 54 @ Shetler Studios
Through April 20, 2013 - New York

RISE is an opera-infused play intertwining the tale of Rome's most infamous anarchist Emperor with the extravagant ambition of four modern-day misfits. In a decaying Roman Empire, debauchery and ruthlessness are de rigueur, but Boy-King Elagabalus's excesses and flagrant disregard for religious tradition and sexual taboos shocks even the most callous citizens. Placed on the throne by the conniving machinations of his mother and grandmother, Elagabalus marries a sacred Vestal Virgin, skewers the national religion, and flaunts his exploits with men and women of all classes. On the outskirts of LA, aspirations run high. Brick Richards has been a top player in porn for ten years, and his manager Myrna Malone desperately wants to convince him to transition to mainstream movies before his star fades. Myrna's assistant Glenn wants something different from Brick: a great, sweeping romance to make life complete. Glenn's roommate Mia doesn't care about sweeping romances, she just wants to achieve her dream of launching the next big cosmetics line, and maybe Myrna or Brick can make that happen? Through human history, one conflict is timeless: when personal ambition eclipses all other considerations, crossed desires lead to double crossing.

The Shaping of New Visions: Photography, Film, Photobook - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through April 21, 2013 - Midtown

This exhibition, covering the period from 1910 to today, offers a critical reassessment of photography's role in the avant-garde and neo-avant-garde movements -- with a special emphasis on the medium's relation to Dada, Bauhaus, Surrealism, Constructivism, New Objectivity, Conceptual, and Post-Conceptual art -- and in the development of contemporary artistic practices. The shaping of what came to be known as "New Vision" photography bore the obvious influence of "lens-based" and "time-based" works. El Lissitzky best summarized its ethos: "The new world will not need little pictures," he wrote in The Conquest of Art (1922). "If it needs a mirror, it has the photograph and the cinema." Bringing together over 250 works from MoMA's collection, the exhibition features major projects by Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Germaine Krull, Gerhard Ruhm, Helen Levitt, Daido Moriyama, Robert Heinecken, Ed Ruscha, Martha Rosler, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia, and Walid Raad, among others. Photographic history is presented as a multivalent history of distinct "new visions," rooted in unconventional and innovative exercises that range from photograms and photomontages to experimental films and photobooks.

The Guggenheim's recent acquisition of 20 works from a major series of pin drawings from 1975 to 1977 serves as a fulcrum for the New York presentation, which is conceived in close collaboration with the artist.

Through April 21, 2013 - Garden City

Adelphi University's Department of Theatre presents the original drama Living Newspaper. The Federal Theatre Project (FTP) was the largest theatrical organization in the history of the world with productions seen by one quarter of the entire American population during the time of the Great Depression. Directed by its author, the Department of Theatre's Dr. Brian Rose, the play, using the format of the FTP's unique and signature style, tells the story of the FTP and the desperate fight of director Hallie Flanagan to save this powerful theatrical voice as it was threatened by the House Un-American Activities Committee with defunding for asking too many inconvenient questions. Living Newspaper was crafted to ask why the inconvenient issues posed by the FTP remain unsolved after over sixty years and why America has never had a federally or state funded theatre since.
