Purchase College students will be performing their own take on Vivaldi Dec. 11.
“This will be a concert like no other,” says Purchase Professor Laura Kaminsky, a composer and the artistic director of Symphony Space in New York. “An added bonus is that the students will collect food donations for families in need, true to the holiday spirit.”
Food contributions, in the form of canned and non-perishable items, will be donated to the food pantry of Born Again United Church in New Rochelle.
The performance is free and open to the public. It will take place at Cooper’s Corner Nursery in New Rochelle from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This concert represents the final project of the College’s new course, “New Modalities in Chamber Music,” taught by Kaminsky. Students in the course brainstorm innovative ways of presenting music in today’s changing society. Ranging from classical violinists to indie rock songwriters and jazz guitarists, the students bring their varied talents together for a live concert in the spirit of collaboration.
Cooper’s Corner Nursery is on Mill Road in New Rochelle. For directions and more information, call (914) 632-2647.
