FLEFF Week

Blog posting written by Shea Lynch, Documentary Studies '14, FLEFF Intern, Glens Falls, New York

Schedules for Ithaca College Campus FLEFF events and FLEFF events at Cinemapolis are now up! Click here for more information.

One of the most exciting events during FLEFF Week includes two pianos, a baritone, and the meshing of two unlikely pieces of music.

You guessed it! The April 11 event, The Checkpoints Concert in Hockett Recital Hall.

This live performance features pianists Jairo Geronymo and Deborah Martin and baritone Brad Hougham.

Igor Stravinsky's work, The Rite of Spring, will be performed by Geronymo and Martin on two pianos. This commonly orchestrated piece will be reworked as a duel piano rendition. 

Brad Hougham will perform Ruckert Lieder by Gustav Mahler.

The combination of these two distinct styles is a never before heard event everyone must attend. It will dazzle all the senses and, accompanied with visual art on modernist screens, will be a show you cannot forget. 

I am excited to attend this event because I am not familiar with any of these works. It will be a great opportunity for me to learn something new and become more artistically cultured. I am also excited to see the visual art on the modernist screens my peer interns will be helping with. It is a bold statement but I am truly happy Ithaca College has the technology to support such an adventurous performance.

If you would like to attend this event, GET THERE EARLY. The event starts at 8:15PM in Hockett Hall on April 11. Hope to see everyone there!

Shea: You said it right! GET THERE EARLY! Jairo, Deb and Brad will turn what any of us thought was classical music on its head. They are virtuosos extraordinaire, ABSOLUTELY not to be missed, the audience will be on the edge of their seats and transported. And, I really like what you have to say about IC having the technology to make something like this happen...indeed...but we also have the producing talent of Insights International, Phil Wilde and Annie Michel, in the FLEFF team, with their vision, artistry, and risk taking....every student should come to see interdisciplinary collaboration at work! Better than an indie rock concert!

This event will definitely be one of a kind! The musicians are beyond talented and take their skills to a whole new level by combining such important pieces from history. I plan on getting there early as you suggest and hope many others will not miss out on such an experience!

3rd reminder: GET THERE EARLY!
I am excited to attend this event!
GO FLEFF TEAM!
