Solo Pianist Ben Laude, Alone, Performs Music Written for Piano Duo, April 23

Join at the Danbury Music Centre’s Marion Anderson Recital on Saturday, April 23rd at 7:00 p.m. for an unforgettable evening featuring pianist Ben Laude performing the complete Goldberg Variations by J.S. Bach, preceded by Steve Reich’s Piano Phase — a work written for two pianists, but performed here by soloist Benjamin Laude, who will play two pianos simultaneously.

At 29, Dr. Laude’s playing has been praised by the New York Times as “beautiful” and “superb in pace, tone, and eloquence.”

Dr. Laude holds doctoral and master’s degrees in piano performance from the Juilliard School as well as a bachelor’s degree from Rice University’s Shepard School of Music. He has appeared as soloist in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall in New York City, and has performed in both solo and ensemble settings across the country, including recent engagements in Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Grand Rapids, Washington D.C, Austin, and Miami. An avid educator, Dr. Laude is on faculty at Bard College/Conservatory as well as School for Strings in New York City.

The concert is a special spring preview event for a new a summer program and concert series launched last August by the Danbury Music Centre called the Danbury Chamber Music Intensive (CMI), at which Dr. Laude is artist-faculty. CMI brings talented emerging musicians, who are recent graduates of Juilliard and other major conservatories, to Danbury for a week in August to work in an intimate setting to teach and perform with local aspiring musicians.

Throughout the week, artist-faculty perform on the CMI Artist Concert Series, a series of public concerts at venues throughout Danbury that feature modern masterworks, the classic favorites, and the music of living American composers in celebration of Charles Ives’s legacy. This summer, CMI will take place from August 8th-14th.

Tickets are free for all 2015 CMI Participants and for all 2016 CMI Applicants. Tickets are $15 for all others. Tickets can be purchased at the door the night of the event or online, CLICK HERE. 

More information is available from Danbury Music Centre’s website or by phone: (203) 748-1716.

  14. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never

    Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  19. I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
    A few of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.

    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

  20. I comment when I especially enjoy a article on a website or I have something to contribute to the discussion. It’s caused by the fire displayed in the article I looked at. And on this post Self hosted video | Intelicom. I was excited enough to drop a thought I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be just me or do some of the comments come across like they are left by brain dead folks? And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to keep up with you. Would you list all of your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  21. So, as you know i installed SickBeard, ran the update (that went well), ran the update a second time because the master had an error, but that did not go well.Now every time i try to run the Sickbeard service i get’ Sickbeard Service failed to start’.I uninstalled and reinstalled Sickbeard several times, but no luck. I removed the .sickbeard folder on C:\\ as well. Do you know of other files i should purge, to fully clean my old sickbeard installation?

  22. I am not sure where you are getting your information, but good topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.

    Thanks for wonderful information I was looking for this information for my mission.

  23. Great idea Carol. Making sure they are stored in a dark place is important, and I read a handy tip about putting a fat rubber band around each jar if they will be stored next to each other on shelves. This protects them from cracking into each other and weakening the glass should there be an earthquake or other jarring situations…(pun intended). =)

  24. みなさんが本当に親身になって相談に乗ってくれていることが本当にうれしくて癒されています(;_;)やはり昨日は帰ってきませんでした。予想していたこととはいえ、また振り出しにもどったような、長引くことになりそうな不安があります。一番上の子が小学校へあがったばかりや二番目の子の体調を崩している事など子供達の心配が大変な時期だけにへこたれそうですが、みなさんのアドバイスを真剣に考えてみようと思います。手紙やメール…いいですね!話だと変なほうにそれたり、逃げられたりしますもんね。まだ離婚はしたくありませんので、全面降伏?するのがいいんでしょうかね_| ̄|○今更ですが今回のきっかけはメールに会社の名前で登録されてる女の子とのやりとりを言おうとしたら『浮気なんてしたことない!勝手にケータイ見る奴と暮らせない!浮気なんてしてないけど、この家庭か外かだったら外を選ぶ!でていく!』という感じでした。以前からケータイにロックがかかっていましたが、子供が遊ばせてもらっていたためその時は解除されてたのでつい見てしまいました。その子と会おうと何度か誘い誘われしている内容でした。もしかしたらまだ体の関係はなかったのか…いやありえないような…とにかく問題は他にいっている気持ちですよね。ちなみにうちは子作り以外ではまったくしていません。仲は悪くなかったと思いますが、確かにわたしに相手を思いやる配慮がなかったし、ぶくぶく太って女としても努力をしていませんでした。ここ最近は食欲があまり無いので、痩せれるかもσ(^_^;)とにかく今回はなあなあで終わらせず時間をおいてみようかと思います。同時に万が一のために子供達を連れて生活できる様に考える事もしたいと思いますm(_ _)m

  25. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?

    A few of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

  27. I'll have to find this dumbass when I get to Korea and kick him in the face…what a retard. What I want to ask these close-minded people is…what about us half Koreans, half Americans. Who are we supposed to marry? I doubt I will be able to find a Half Korean/Half American that's ancestry comes from Whales with a little bit of scottish…in his eyes I guess I'm fucked…lol

  28. the left wing perspective on Jews has always been basically the same, as a group apart whose separate identity represents a threat and who must be brought to work for the greater good by destroying that separatism, or destroying them

  29. Excellent beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend your web
    site, how could i subscribe for a weblog site? The account aided
    me a appropriate deal. I have been a little bit acquainted of this
    your broadcast offered shiny clear idea

  30. It's helpful to be cute or pretty when wearing a more 'extreme' make up look, you're both so you're all set!I miss my long platinum tinted hair now…after looking at your pictures…I just cut my hair into a bob (it was close to your length) and dyed it auburn. I just found your blog & now follow. 🙂

  31. The simple explanations you have provided along with your article make this one of the best written and best detail-oriented articles I have had the enjoyment of reading and thinking about in a long time.

  32. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something
    like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  33. Jenny / Life is sometimes so complicated that it is not until we take a step back and prioritise that we find that the simple things in life are what are really important and they are what makes us happy.Complexity = stress‘Look for the bare necessities, the simple bare necessities…………….’Never ridden on a motorbike but my car is a KISS car.

  34. Liam-I assure you, my intention was not to misrepresent the book from my initial reading of the summary of each chapter. However, I think it is perfectly reasonable–based on reading the book’s summary–to get the impression that much of the content seeks to show how Christians “deceive” people, and are also deceived themselves. My intention is to read the book and give a fair assessment. I simply do not have the time to overtly make enemies. But that does not mean I won’t present my impression and opinions.

  35. each country is different and had different circumstances going into the crash–but none found "stimulus" any use in extracting themselves from the mire. And that's the real point here, isn't it."That really hasn't been shown. What you'd need to show that is examples of comparable countries (i.e. developed) who implement austerity measures during the same time period and saw real increases in their growth.

  36. Good day! This is my first comment here so I just wanted
    to give a quick shout out and tell you I really
    enjoy reading your articles. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same topics?
    Many thanks!

  37. "white suburban alienation" then a lot of whites would go batshit defensive. I wouldn't though. Every time one of those happens I think about white trash in 4,000 sq ft houses. Really, I do.I mean, what's the difference between Kleibold shooting a bunch of white kids in Colorado and some black kid in the 'hood walking up to another black kid in the 'hood in Philly or Baltimore or Chicago and blowing his brains out?About the only thing I can think of is that a whole lot more of it is happening among blacks, but still, it's not as if whites aren't doing this crap.

  38. J'adore le couscous et le tien me donne vraiment très envie. Ce n'est donc plus la peine que je continue à chercher quel plat je vais bien pouvoir préparer cette semaine… Seule une chose m'inquiète: vais-je trouver le temps de réaliser ce voyage culinaire?

  39. Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying
    to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good
    results. If you know of any please share. Kudos!

  40. hi!,I really like your writing so so much! share we keep up a correspondence more about your article on AOL?

  43. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker
    who has been doing a little homework on this. And he actually
    ordered me lunch due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss
    this issue here on your site.
