CONCERT FOR PEACE

On April 10, 2005 I presented a Concert for Peace at the Broadway Presbyterian Church (114th Street and Broadway) featuring my music, poets Marlene Lortev-Terwilliger and Peggy Garrison, dancer Juliet Gentile, and the jazz quartet "The Kevin McNeal 4" with Kevin McNeal, "Sweet" Sue Terry, Eric Lemon and Bruce Cox. The concert was part of the Music For Peace Project sponsored by the Musicians' Alliance for Peace (see the MUSIC FOR PEACE page for more information about MAP). The following peace organizations were invited to set up informational tables for an after-concert reception: Musicians' Alliance for Peace, Amnesty International, Grandmothers Against the War, Grandmothers For Peace, MADRE, New York City War Resisters League, New York State Peace Action, Not In Our Name, The Peace Project, United for Peace and Justice and The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.

FORECAST MUSIC

In April 2000, I co-curated a new music series at Cornelia Street Café presenting the music of Giancarlo Vulcano, Gal Ziv, Andy Laster and Ben Yarmolinksy, with performers Deborah Buck, Oren Fader and the Manhattan School of Music Percussion Ensemble, among others.

During this series, Giancarlo Vulcano approached me to form a composers´ collaborative with Gal Ziv and Eric Schwartz. We named the group Forecast Music. Our idea was to present our music in a relaxed, informal setting. In its first two years Forecast Music presented concerts at the South Oxford Space in Brooklyn, Galapagos, the Knitting Factory and the AugustArt Festival in New York City. After our second year Giancarlo Vulcano became extremely busy working for Howard Shore, I wanted to try to do something different and Gal Ziv moved to Israel. Eric Schwartz has kept the name, re-forming the group with composer James Barry, conductor Harry Marenstein and flutist Christine Perea.
