We “hung out” on Google Plus.
The Sleeping Giant/Ensemble ACJW collaboration is happening! Details here. The project will involve a collaborative work by various Sleepy Gs and will accompany Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat. This is our first attempt creating something together from scratch and will definitely be an adventure. The work will be premiered February 14, 2012 at Weill Recital Hall. According to Carnegie’s website some upstart band called the Philadelphia Orchestra (?) is playing over in Stern Hall that very same night. Hmmm… I know which show I’m going to.
We’re happy to report the next Sleeping Giant fiesta will be June 15 at Littlefield. If you haven’t been, Littlefield is a great art space in Gowanus on Degraw bewteen 3rd and 4th avenues. It’s even more awesome in the summer when they open up the bar/cafe area to include a lovely outdoor enclave. The program and performers are still TBA but expect some hot tunes from all the sleepy Gs.
Stay tuned for Sleeping Giant events to come in the summer and fall of 2011!
