Can you hear the music? Canary is working with Ars Nova Workshop, Philadelphia’s leading jazz and experimental music presenting organization, on media relations for two Spring concert series, the first of which kicks off this weekend! From Friday, March 11 - Sunday, March 13, ANW presents Composer Portrait: Fieldworkshowcasing the collective and individual work of pianist Vijay Iyer, saxophonist Steve Lehman, and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, who together make up the critically acclaimed trio Fieldwork.
If you are a jazz fan, the Fieldwork series is not to miss. Back in September 2010, I saw Vijay Iyer play in Philadelphia at a special presentation by the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Eastern State Penitentiary. He played to a small audience in the surveillance round of the prison! In short, the concert was spectacular. Though familiar with his solo work, I had not heard of Fieldwork previously and have enjoyed learning more about the collective. Looking forward to seeing and hearing Fieldwork this weekend.
