92nd Street Y

92nd Street Y (92Y) is a nonprofit civic and cultural facility that aims to bring people together through the performing and visual arts, education, health, fitness and Jewish life. 92Y has a wide assortment of programs, classes and events open for the community that nurture creativity. Such curricula includes online and in-person live concerts, parenting workshops, master, fitness and art classes.

The mission of 92Y is to house resources that promote the physical, mental and spiritual health of individuals throughout their lives. Founded 147 years ago, all the programming generated at the 92Y center is built on the foundation of Jewish values. While curated to serve Jewish people, 92Y follows the Jewish value of welcoming all differing ages, races, religions and ethnicities of people.

The Knights Ensemble in Residence

As a collective of musicians seeking to renovate the orchestral experience, The Knights are artistically directed by the Jacobsen brothers, with Eric Jacobsen as conductor. The Brooklyn-based orchestral cooperative The Knights showcased the first of three concerts during this fall and spring at their residency at 92Y.

The heart of the concert stages two classical works – Schubert’s bright “Unfinished” Symphony and Vaughn Williams’ superb The Lark Ascending, featuring Knights Artistic Director Colin Jacobsen as violin soloist. The programming of The Knights navigates Manhattan’s Lower East Side in the 1990s and Vienna in the 1820s, highlighting subjects of revitalization and renewal, while echoing Schubert in work of a Creole-influenced composer.

360 Magazine was invited to attend The Knights concert on Saturday December 11. We stood by, bearing the recent loss of love. Our heads were heavy, entering this season, but be that as it may, we gathered the courage. And, what the audience witnessed was nothing short of astonishing – suspensive string clips, haunting flute sounds coupled with intermittent triangular percussion rings penetrated the auditorium.

Eric (conductor) and Colin’s limitless love for one another was the vitality of this whole series. Their playlist literally tickled our souls, watered our desires while our vellum hairs danced with deception. Each section took us on a mental roller coaster – sitting in the forward car, enjoying the initial fall with our hands toward the sky. This meticulously blended set is like good wine and possesses all the sweet and refreshing notes of Napa.

Eric ran into sweat directing while we were all mesmerized at his art of bending the air. Colin dominated the audience with his vulnerability, eerie arrangement and tremendous talent. To sum up, The Knights adopt an unorthodox approach to music, exposing their joie de vivre to whomever is willing to embrace their truth.

Eric Jacobsen

Conductor of The Knights Eric Jacobson has gained the reputation of leading revolutionary projects. Jacobsen has conducted The Knights at New York venues including Carnegie Hall and Central Park, as well as internationally at the Vienna Musikverein, Cologne Philharmonie and Hamburg Elbphilharmonie. Serving as Music Director of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, Jacobsen was recently appointed Music Director of the Virginia Symphony. With much call as a guest conductor, he too just led the Camerata Bern, Detroit Symphony, Alabama Symphony, ProMuscia Chamber Orchestra, Deutsche Philharmonie Merck and Yo-Yo Ma’s Silkroad.

Colin Jacobsen

Known as a violinist and composer, Colin Jacobsen is a captivating figure serving the classical music scene. Jacobsen was named one of the top 100 composures under 40 by NPR listeners. Operating as an active Avery Fisher Career Grant-winning soloist, he has toured with Silkroad since it was established in 2000. For his landmark work in the string quartet Brooklyn Rider and orchestra The Knights, Jacobsen was chosen amongst the nation’s leading visual and performing artists to obtain an esteemed United States Artists Fellowship.

Wed, Jan 19, 2022, 7:30 pm ET

The Knights collaborate with pianist Aaron Diehl for a blend of jazz and classical music. The ensemble welcomes Diehl as they explore Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue and trailblazer Mary Lou WilliamsZodiac Suite. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 is also featured with varieties from Ravel’s Baroque-inspired Le Tombeau de Couperin. Closing out the show is Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, arranged by Michael P. Atkinson.

Sat, Apr 30, 2022, 8 pm ET

Edgar Meyer, critically acclaimed double bass virtuoso and composer, unites with The Knights for the New York premiere of his second concerto. The show unfolds with a showing of Jamaican-born British composer Eleanor Alberga’s Shining Gates of Morpheus featuring Knights hornist David Byrd-Marrow. The closing of the show continues the American spirit of Meyer’s work is Coplands’ Appalachian Spring.

THE DALLAS OPERA LAUNCHES STREAMING PLATFORM

THE DALLAS OPERA LAUNCHES NEW STREAMING PLATFORM FOR GLOBAL AUDIENCE: THEDALLASOPERA.TV

Monthly Subscription Provides Access to Video Catalogue from tdo network, OperaKids Programs, and Performances; New Content will be Added Regularly

Premium Films—Known as Originals—to be Featured Periodically as Special Pay-Per-View Rentals

The Dallas Opera (TDO) announces the launch of its new subscription streaming platform. Available starting today, the website brings together TDO’s full catalogue of existing video content—which ranges from full opera productions for audiences of all ages, to musical conversations and original opera-themed sit-com style episodes, to artist-hosted series that spotlight their interests and careers, educational series, and more—with new original opera films created specifically for a virtual audience.

The Dallas Opera represents a new avenue of presentation and production for an opera company, beyond the physical space of an opera house. Rather than offering only streams of staged productions filmed archivally, The Dallas Opera’s platform offers primarily original content filmed exclusively for streaming, available for viewing 24/7, 365 days a year by a global audience.

“We are so thrilled that thedallasopera.TV is launching today,” said Ian Derrer, The Dallas Opera’s Kern Wildenthal General Director and CEO. “To watch this project go from idea to reality in less than a year has been amazing to see, and we’re so proud of the content that we have ready to offer our global audience. This platform truly helps redefine our company as a leader in digital content, as well as on the opera house stage. We are breaking new ground in the field while continuing to preserve the great traditions of live opera.”

“What we’ve learned over the course of the past year without live performances is that there is a thirst for quality online content, and we are so happy to lead the way in producing that for our eager fans around the world,” said David Lomelí, a tenor, TDO’s Artistic Consultant, and creative force behind the initiative. “Statistics show that viewers ages 18-34 and 34-45 are online for more than 10 hours each day, and our efforts to reach that demographic—through unique and creative offerings—have proven successful, growing in just a year from 2,000 unique views in March 2020 to more than 150 million unique views today on our Facebook channel. Our hope is that this streaming model will reach even more.”

Subscriptions to the streaming platform are available for $4.99/month with a free seven-day trial. In addition, premium content–Originals–will be offered periodically at a pay-per-view price.

Two Originals are available as thedallasopera.TV launches today: “That Which We Love”, a recital by acclaimed mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, and “Vanished,” a three-part art film starring countertenor John Holiday and tenor Russell Thomas with music by Gluck, Monteverdi, and Janáček assembled into a new narrative. A third original, “The Heart of the Song,” featuring conversation with and performances by tenors Javier Camarena, Rolando Villazón, and David Lomelí, will be released on May 25 for a limited viewing period.

Accompanying these images are stories and testimonials from musicians Haney has toured alongside, including Chris Martin of Coldplay, Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe, Maggie Rogers, Lars Ulrich from Metallica, Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons, Albert Hammond JR of The Strokes and many more, all talking about the importance of fans and anecdotes and memories of their own as fans themselves. The book opens with a foreword penned by Elton John, who Haney has also been out on the road with.

Explaining the inspiration behind the book, Haney recalls, “Back when I was in college, I couldn’t afford to go to music festivals so I would sneak into them with my friends. Often, I used a borrowed camera from school and posed as a press photographer. I filmed all the bands I loved and used the guise of a fake press pass to get as close to the stage as possible. After a few festivals, I cut together a short documentary of my friends and I sneaking into Coachella and Bonnaroo. At another show, I handed a roadie a burnt DVD copy of my short doc, who then passed it onto the band he was teching for, Mumford & Sons. Soon, I found myself on an old-school vintage train chugging across America with Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show as part of the Railroad Revival Tour.”

“My passion for touring came at a cost though: as my time on the road coincided with my final exams at film school. I forfeited a college degree but made some of the best friends of my life and embarked on a career adventure that I could never have dreamed of. Through touring the world with artists like Mumford & Sons, Elton John, and Coldplay, I was able to immerse into all sorts of cultures and musical worlds and all sorts of wild crowds and fans. I found myself taking photos of fans everywhere – there was something so captivating about watching people completely lost in the music, witnessing that spiritual experience.”

This book is a culmination of a decade of touring the world and the truckload of film negatives that have amassed in that time. It captures the emotions, fashions, and faces of the 2010 decade through live music. And it is only now, from the depths of a pandemic, do these photographs remind us of a time, so recent yet so different, and represent the ultimate experience to look forward to again.

Words on FANATICS by Elton John:

“FANATICS is a book that celebrates that dedication, that music fan’s rite of passage, what you might call the magical festival spirit. It’s partly the sense that you can do whatever you want – get drunk, get high, have sex, whatever – at least for a weekend. And it’s partly that the one thing that’s bonding everyone together at a festival is the love of music. You can see that spirit, that common humanity, in the photos in this book.

Marcus has captured that indomitable festival spirit brilliantly through these photographs. With his trusted camera in hand, he’s the ultimate fly on the wall, or the fly on the canvas of the tent. He seizes these moments, almost like the invisible man, catching people in every imaginable state – in rapture and in decay, the ecstasy and the agony.”

Harley-Davidson Museum

The Harley-Davidson Museum is celebrating October with more than just its one-of-a-kind collection of motorcycles and memorabilia, as Milwaukee’s own musicians and artists will be on-campus to provide extra entertainment.

De La Buena, Lex Allen and Trapper Schoepp will take the stage Oct. 11 as part of a Rock the Green event. Tickets cost $10 and benefit Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts, Danceworks and Schlitz Audubon Nature Center.

Artists are also invited to participate in “Drawing in the H-D Museum” as part of Gallery Night and Day. Philip Salamone will take participants through the creative process in the event which will take place Oct. 16.

New all-electric LiveWire motorcycles will be available for demo rides Oct. 17 and 18. In promotion of the new Apple TV+ series “Long Way Up,” everyone who rides one of the motorcycles will receive a limited-edition LiveWire poster.

While guests are welcomed back to the museum, the first priority is safety. To see how the Harley-Davidson Museum is protecting guests, you can click right here.

They also have a few must-see exhibits available for only a little while longer.

Taming the Road in Style shows Harley-Davidson from the beginning. At a time in which motorcycles were nothing more than chunks of dirt, stone and other debris, designers struggled to build a comfortable bike. Many improvements to suspension, seats and frames later, Harley-Davidsons looked nothing like they did at their inception. Taming the Road in Style traces the history of Harley-Davidson motorcycles all the way until the most modern models. This exhibit closes Nov. 8.

“Tex’s Motorcycle” is a painting by Stevan Dohanos, who frequently contributed to the “Saturday Evening Post.” On the streets of Georgetown, Conn. was “Tex” Keller’s personalized motorcycle. He used nickel spots to decorate his saddle bag and put fur on his saddle. While prints of the painting are available all over the country, the original can only be seen at the Harley-Davidson Museum.

Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” is a collection of architectural drawings, including plans for the original facility on Juneau Avenue. Pencil drawings and archival photos show how Harley-Davidson grew from producing 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to 27,000 in 1920. The Milwaukee factory continued to expand and is still the home of Harley-Davidson 100 years later.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon” shows Harley-Davidson in the middle of the period during which Milwaukee was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.” The Harley-Davidson Museum social channels will be providing behind-the-scenes looks at this exhibit.

They also offer tours. Engines 101 is a class taking visitors inside the engine. How does a powertrain work, and what’s so special about the 4-stroke engine? It’s all available to learn in a classroom setting. Ticket are available right here.

The H-D Museum Campus Walking Tour is the best way to absorb Harley-Davidson history and culture in the great outdoors. You can download a PDF of the campus map by clicking right here.

GRAMMY/BRITs-nominee and two-time recipient of BET’s Best International Act award, BURNA BOY, officially unveils an official music video for his newest single “Wonderful” from his upcoming 4th studio album TWICE AS TALL. You can watch/share the official video HERE.

The “Wonderful” visual arrives after his second-consecutive win as the BET Award’s Best International Act which was presented to him this year by Naomi Campbell. Using his acceptance speech as an opportunity to share the importance of unity he went on to say, “I’d like to use this opportunity to say that sometime around 1835 there was a mission to turn the nation of Africa into a dominated nation. Now is the time to overturn that and go back to the royalty that we were because in order for black lives to matter, Africa must matter.”

Burna Boy continues into 2020 after wrapping an extremely successful 2019. His GRAMMY-nominated album (Best World Music Album), AFRICAN GIANT, saw incredible critical acclaim at its release and now adorns a galore of ‘best of’ lists – including Pitchfork’s 50 Best Albums of 2019, NPR’s Best Albums of 2019, Billboard’s 50 Best Albums of 2019, Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2019, Complex’s Best Albums of 2019, and many more. He was also named Apple Music’s Up Next Artist. He was also seen on Beyonce’s THE LION KING: THE GIFT with “JA ARA E” in addition to the official “Queen & Slim” soundtrack with “My Money, My Baby.”

The Nigerian star made his U.S. late night television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! followed by appearances on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He also appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk, performing four live songs including his global hit “Ye.”

He also had an extensive year of live performances, traveling across North America on his THE AFRICAN GIANT RETURNS TOUR with sold-out stops in Toronto, New York, and LA through September, spending an additional two months for its European leg from Paris through Leicester, and had two fiery live sets at both weekends of Coachella.

ABOUT BURNA BOY:

Burna Boy was born in Port Harcourt City and started producing music when he was ten years old. After graduating from school, Burna relocated to London for university. After two years, he dropped out and moved back to Nigeria to pursue his passion. A creative by the name of LeriQ allocated studio space for Burna to record and produce.

His father always listened to dancehall and reggae music, an early influence and integral part of his musical style. Burna’s grandfather managed Fela Kuti for the first 15 years of his career, a relationship that would come to shape Burna’s sound and his understanding of himself as an artist that represents Nigeria, and more broadly Africa, to the world. Burna Boy classifies his own music as Afro-fusion, a genre he coined.
