David Michael Wolff (Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of the Carolina Philharmonic, and a virtuoso pianist to boot!) performed my latest composition, Mélodie. I'd highly recommend listening to his fine interpretation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-3Svgg0qDU

Ludovico Einaudi – Nuvole Bianche (White Clouds)

Orchestra 2100's Principal Conductor on keys: "White Clouds" by Einaudi. View on Youtube: https://youtu.be/_Tb6zkKyyWs

David shares: This is the most unexpectedly cathartic piece of music I've experienced. And it seems to have a similar effect on nearly everyone. The longer you listen, the more it washes over you. You don't want it to end!! A lifetime journey is contained in just a few minutes. Enjoy!"

If you're so inclined, subscribe to David's channel, with new videos each week: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwYBNNFiXRseJ6w9n4JoHdA?sub_confirmation=1

I hope you enjoy my interpretation of Einaudi's "Nuvole bianche" (White clouds). May the images emitting from the keys bring you as much delight to watch as ...

A note of gratitude from our Artistic Director, David Michael Wolff:
It's been quite an incredible couple of days. The energy throughout the event this morning was electric, from the children's art exhibit and the pre-show all the way through the kids loading back up on a long line of buses afterwards. The response from teachers and administrators so far has been really rewarding.

One of the administrators pulled me aside in the lobby just after and said, "These kids will never forget what they experienced today."

Here's a shot from one of Orchestra 2100's musicians capturing the moment I was inviting our first 6- or 7-yr-old boy to conduct the orchestra and 700+ classmates. When I asked for a volunteer conductor, most of the hands shot up, and it was so hard to choose. He and three others lead us with fierce confidence, and all with a strong sense of rhythm, determination and grace.

With immense gratitude to all of you for supporting this ~ David

Over 700 elementary, middle and high school students in Mecklenburg County, VA are about to be blown away as they join forces with Orchestra 2100 for an incredible culminating concert to the 2018/19 Encore! Kids Virginia program.
Our gratitude to all of the individuals and businesses that are making this essential program possible. Not only will the kids perform together with a live symphony orchestra, but many of their own works of art (those of first and second graders), inspired by Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals, will be featured on live screens onstage, and in an Art Exhibit in the lobby of McGregor Hall as they enter. It will be a day of empowerment through art, music and creativity, made possible by you, our sponsors and supporters, as well as by the amazing music and art teachers of Mecklenburg County Schools. Thank you!!

Count-down: Encore! Kids performance with Orchestra 2100 is just two weeks away. Today and tomorrow, Maestro David Michael Wolff will visit the schools of 700 first and second graders in Mecklenburg County to inspire them before they make a fieldtrip to McGregor Hall on March 6th to experience making music with the symphony orchestra live.

Perhaps he'll discover another natural-born conductor.

Thank you for making Encore! Kids possible.

Come join us for the magic - Virtuoso Natasha Korsakova, of Russian-Greek descent, is one of most popular violinists of her generation. The German Süddeutsche Zeitung describes her ability to play the violin as a "sinfully beautiful listening experience". The young violinist who speaks five languages is currently a coveted guest for national and international orchestras, music festivals and concert events. The artist stands for “Perfect technique, bold stylistic sense and musical intuition (FAZ) as well as for a charisma that without equal.

What makes an instrument beautiful, or legit?

3d printing and other technological innovations are opening up new vistas and definitions. Could kids customize/design and print their own creations, and then learn to play them? Could this lead in the near-term to nearly free starter instruments for schools in need? The implications for music and interdisciplinary education are mind-bending.

We're testing the waters of the Maker Revolution this week printing several open source instruments, including the very promising Hovalin

Maybe we can get Natasha Korsakova to test it out?
