As Long Island music lovers have been learning, Huntington's cultural gem - the CINEMA ARTS CENTRE - has widened its reach to bring phenomenal professional classic and innovative music to the intimate setting of the Sky Room Café. To be sure, CAC is embracing the music community with the same highly developed, eclectic, sophisticated approach as it has film. With prices that are affordable for both old and young this grants a younger generation an opportunity of early exposure to these diverse genres of music within a warm, friendly setting. Families together can enjoy music's unifying experience.
Cinema Arts Centre is proud to host a show of this caliber. Renowned composer & conductor Carman Moore along with his seven piece electro/acoustic ensemble will be premiering his new work HIGH HEAVENS, as well as granting some of Long Island's gifted child-musicians the opportunity to join in on one of his compositions. What a glorious spring afternoon this promises to be and, as well, a very appropriate way to celebrate Mother's Day.
THE SKYMUSIC ENSEMBLE will be opening an active season with their appearance here on May 8th at Huntington, L.I.'s Cinema Arts Centre. This electro-acoustic Ensemble's May 8th performance will include a world-premiere work by Carman Moore entitled HIGH HEAVENS featuring its two violinists Charles Burnham and Daisy Jopling. The work opens with violins, piccolo, and keyboards "twittering" (in the old-school use of the term) and develops with solos over a series of rich chorale-like chords. New to the Ensemble's instrumentation will be electric bass played by Brian Lee. Local talented students will also have the grand opportunity to perform with THE SKYMUSIC ENSEMBLE in a piece composed and conducted by Carman Moore.
THE SKYMUSIC ENSEMBLE can best be described as 'new music." A world-class electro-acoustic chamber group featuring a distinctly original blend of styles from classical to jazz and ethnic music. Founded in 1980 by its conductor and principal composer Carman Moore, THE SKYMUSIC ENSEMBLE has been featured in concerts world-wide including at La Scala in Milan, Geneva's Made-in-America Festival 1990, Washington D.C.'s Dumbarton Series, and at major venues from London to Kyoto and Ottawa, Canada. Based in New York City the group has performed for audiences ranging from the Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors Festival, the Guggenheim Museum, the United Nations, and the World Financial Center Series to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine where they and Mr. Moore were Artists-in-Residence, 1988-2000. The Ensemble performed at Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors in August of 2007 in a memorial concert for Leroy Jenkins and Mark Heinemann. This world-famed Ensemble last performed in spring 2010 as feature musicians on choreographer Elaine Summers' concert at St. Marks-in-the Bowery Church.
And as always...EXPECT THE TRULY UNEXPECTED!!! A wine and cheese reception will follow the music.
