An evening of spectacular wind chamber music, featuring horn virtuoso Jacquelyn Adams. She joins veteran NCCP horn player, Kendall Betts in two fantastic works that call for two horns: Mozart's "Musical Joke" and the Ferdinand Ries Septet!

She has played with artists and ensembles including Gary Morgan Pan-Americana Big Band, Gato Loco, Kanye West, and Luciano Pavarotti. Her Broadway experience includes Beauty and the Beast, South Pacific, West Side Story, Lion King, and Legally Blonde. Some of her recent recordings include David Byrne and St. Vincent’s “Love This Giant,” Astor Piazzolla’s “Oblivion,” and Aaron Copland’s “Clarinet Concerto” featuring clarinetist David Singer and A Far Cry (Boston-based chamber ensemble).

DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION
Exploring rousing dance music from a myriad of cultures, this program's highlight is a guest appearance by internationally acclaimed composer, performer, and band leader, LJOVA! Fans of our past cross-genre collaborations will not want to miss this concert, which draws inspiration from klezmer, jazz, and other improvised musics. Hailed by the New York Times as “dizzyingly versatile… an eclectic with an ear for texture… strikingly original and soulful”, LJOVA (Lev Zhurbin) was born in Moscow, Russia, and moved to New York in 1990. He divides his time between composing for the concert stage, contemporary dance & film, leading his own ensemble LJOVA AND THE KONTRABAND, as well as a busy career as a freelance violist & musical arranger. Among recent collaborations are projects with Yo-Yo Ma, the Kronos Quartet, Gustavo Santaolalla, Osvaldo Golijov, and Alondra de la Parra. Recent commissions have included projects with the string quartet Brooklyn Rider, choreographer Aszure Barton, and filmmaker Josef Astor.

THE GRAND SLAMBOVIANS
“Songs imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism… they take the stage by storm!” - The NY Times
The Slambovian Circus of Dreams pioneered the alt-folk/americanaAmericana genre, staying on the fringes of the music industry and under the radar while producing several critically acclaimed studio albums. ‘A Box of Everything’, the band’s most recent release this past April, is a compilation of the ‘Greatest Hits’ you’ve never heard from this reclusive band. If you like Dylan, Bowie, or The Decemberists, you’ll find a lot to love about this band which features an otherworldly slide mandolin, accordion, cello and styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. Headlining major music festivals and venues across the US, Canada and UK, they built their career from the ground up with a loyal fan base supporting them all the way.

“…He is that rare performer for whom people lean forward in their seats as eagerly between songs as they do during them." - The Boston Globe
Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90's when the buzz spread through the folk clubs of the Northeast about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking them dead at open mics. Word got out about this Philadelphia-area born and raised performer, and Shawn Colvin invited Gilbert to be a special guest on her 1992 Fat City tour. Gilbert took audiences across North America by storm. "With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to earn him that rarity: an encore for an opener" wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in its review of a show from that tour.
