Mark Simon Music in New York

Post by diegobueno » Tue May 16, 2017 3:24 pm

To those in the New York area: a chance to hear some Mark Simon music.
"Nevertheless, She Persisted" will be performed at the Bar Thalia on W. 95th St. and Broadway, 7:00ish. The jaw-droppingly amazing players will be:
Patrick Jee, cello (NY Philharmonic)
Joseph Lee, cello (NYC Ballet)
Andrew Yee, cello (Attacca Quartet)
Ron Wasserman, bass (NYC Ballet)

I'll be there. Come meet me, have a drink, enjoy some spectacular playing.

Thank you! This is a very informal setting, a bar rather than a concert hall. They are playing 3 or 4 other new pieces and the rest of the evening will be jazz. I don't know how the people who come for the jazz will react to the new compositions.

BTW, I need to give a giant thank you to Joe Barron for getting me in touch with Ron Wasserman, whose idea it was to do this.

Indeed, congrats to you, Mark. If I was in NYC, I would be there! Lotsa luck.

It could be said that you are raising the bar for the possibilities of alternative venues. ;)

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

I'm not too concerned about their choice of venue. It sounds like they want to make it an ongoing ensemble, so they might well have occasion to play it in a regular concert hall in the future.
