Daniel will be joining the Eco Music Big Band, under the direction of Marie Incontrera on the stage at Carnegie Hall. He will be singing in excerpts of Marie's new opera Angela's Ring.
The Eco-Music Big Band is proud to present its debut performance at Carnegie Hall on June 3, 2017 in Zankel Hall. This program entitled Speaking Truth to Power, showcases what the Eco-Music Big Band does best: virtuosity in both improvised and notated music, cross-genre styles, and dynamic musical and theatrical experiences. This program features a jazz reimagining of Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat, featuring celebrity actor and librettist-in-residence John Palladino (Orange Is The New Black); the posthumous premiere of Fred Ho’s virtuosic baritone saxophone concerto, When The Real Dragons Fly!, featuring the leading expert on Fred Ho’s baritone saxophone style, Larry Bustamante; David Taylor’s iconic reimagining of Franz Schubert Der Doppelganger; 8 Songs for a Drag Queen, a drag mini-opera featuring countertenor and trombonist David Whitwell, with libretto by John Palladino and music by Italian composer Girolamo Deraco and librettist John Palladino; and a preview of the jazz opera Angela’s Ring, by GRAMMY-Award winning producer and librettist Kabir Sehgal and composer Marie Incontrera. World Entertainment Company, the European artist’s agency, has in part made this performance possible. This dynamic and unprecedented evening brings jazz and classical music together, fusing the traditions of the highest art music and the improvisation heard in jazz clubs, and showcasing the cross-genre virtuosity of our musicians in both notated and improvised styles.
