Event

PRISM Quartet with Diego Rivera & Andrew Bishop
Hailed by NewMusicBox as "arguably the preeminent saxophone ensemble of its kind currently active in the United States" and for presiding "over what future music history textbooks might just look back on as a golden era for the sax quartet medium," the PRISM Quartet presents a concert of intriguing music that bridges the saxophones dual histories in classical music and jazz.

PRISM is joined by jazz saxophone greats Diego Rivera and Andrew Bishop for three works on the program: Improvisations by Chris Potter, "one of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet" (DownBeat), Found by PRISM's own Matthew Levy, and Dave Liebman's arrangement of John Coltrane's ballad, Dear Lord. The program also spotlights PRISM in performances of "Radical Alignment" from 15 Places At The Same Time by Steve Lehman, Leafless Trees by David Laganella, and the world premiere of Schumann Bouquet, Pulitzer Prize-winner William Bolcom's new adaptation of piano works by Robert Schumann.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit a residency program this year in which PRISM visits six schools in Greater Detroit for 28 programs serving over 3,400 students. School programs include assembly performances, composition classes, learning labs, and coaching sessions. Participating schools include:
Ellington Conservatory of Music & Arts at Beckham Academy in Detroit
John R. King Academic & Performing Arts Academy in Detroit
Cass Technical High School in Detroit
Crescendo Detroit and Progression, Inc. in Detroit
Grand River Academy in Livonia
McBride Middle School in Belleville

According to Damien Crutcher, the founding executive director of Crescendo Detroit, "Our motto is 'Building character through music.' One of our major goals is to regularly expose our kids to the best artists possible. We believe if they can see it, they can be it, which is why we are beyond excited to have the PRISM Quartet in residence with us here, in the heart of Detroit."
