Synchromy - re: Launch
Synchromy returns in 2014 with re: Launch, a concert of 21st Century chamber music at Occidental College's historic Bird Studio in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles. The program includes the works of Jason Barabba, Tom Flaherty, John Frantzen, Vera Ivanova, Shaun Naidoo, Nick Norton, Ben Phelps and Mark Robson.
This performance is part of a bold redirection of the group's purpose, buoyed by their recent designation as an independent non-profit organization by the IRS. They see this program as a starting point in their long-term plans, with examples from future programs performed by some of the best singers and instrumentalists from Southern California.
Synchromy is proud to be partnering with Brightwork newmusic, a recently-formed sextet of world class instrumentalists on reLaunch. Brightwork will be bringing Shaun Naidoo's Ararat to the program, as well as participating in several other works, marking the beginning of a long-term collaboration between the two organizations. Brightwork newmusic is Sara Andon, Aron Kallay, Roger Lebow, Tereza Stanislav, Nick Terry and Brian Walsh.
Piano Spheres pianist Mark Robson, one of the leading performers of new (and old!) music in Los Angeles will be performing the world premiere of a piano piece by Nick Norton as well as works including one of his own compositions. The program also includes several vocal works with mezzo-soprano Kristina Driskill, baritone Scott Graff and soprano Ann Noriel.
Tom Flaherty's string trio, Triphoria, was the selected work from Synchromy's first-ever call-for-scores earlier this year. As part of an anonymous judging process of scores from Southern-California composers, Triphoria impressed the judges with its inventiveness and energy. It will be performed by Brightwork's cellist Roger Lebow, along with violinst Alyssa Park and violist Alma Lisa Fernandez.
