Jacques-Pierre Malan (GPD ’12, MM ’16, Cello; GPD ’13, Chamber Music) together with Jonathan Carney, Concertmaster of the BSO; Lisa Steltenpohl, principal violist BSO; and Wyatt Underhill, Assistant Concertmaster BSO will perform a new work by Peabody composition master’s candidate Samuel Saunders. Brightmoor is a string quartet paired with a piano piece that will be presented on Tuesday, February 27 at 7:00 pm, at An Die Musik Live in Baltimore. The quartet draws on themes that the composer developed while living in an abandoned house in Detroit, Mich.
Faculty artist Judah Adashi (MM ’02, DMA ’11, Composition) released a track for the Super Bowl. The track was part of a collaboration with Tariq Touré, whose poem, “Colin Kaepernick: For the Love of The Game,” served as partial inspiration. No Refuge: For the Love of The Game was meant to be downloaded and played in lieu of the pre-game anthem, but is still available for purchase. All proceeds from this piece will go to Know Your Rights Camp: a free campaign for youth, fully funded by Kaepernick, to raise awareness about higher education, self-empowerment, and instruction on how to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios.
