We start this week with Holland Festival’s online programme, which runs from 11-21 June. With the theme “In pursuit of the we”, it is led by this year’s associate artist Bill T. Jones. Highlights include a three-part performance of Jones’ Deep Blue Sea, and the legendary choreographer will also give an online masterclass and take part in a panel discussion on race and gender. Check out the full programme here.
There’s also time to catch up on some performances you might have missed. Latitude 45 Arts, for example, has shared a performance from santur player Amir Amiri that you can find through his facebook page.
In addition, American Dance Abroad’s Chats Across Borders series is available to stream. There are three episodes in total, with choreographer Kyle Abraham; Péter Ertl (National Dance Theatre, Budapest); Karen Cheung (West Kowloon Cultural District); Pamela Green (PMG arts); and Allen Moon (David Lieberman Artists’ Representatives) among the panellists.
As we reported recently, Vienna State Opera is reopening for performances. However, since the audience size is limited to just 100 people, the company is also putting live streams up for everyone to enjoy. Recitals this week are from bassist Günther Groissböck and pianist Alexandra Goloubitskaia (8 June); bass-baritone Tomasz Konieczny and pianist Lech Napierala (11 June); and a chamber performance by members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (10 June). The concerts go live at 19:30 CET at http://www.staatsoperlive.com/.
Elsewhere, the Centre for Young Musicians is holding a fundraising gala concert on 10 June for its Young at Heart project. Young at Heart is aiming to raise GBP1m (€1.12m) to fund music classes for 1,000 young people in London. The concert – which features current students and alumni – will be streamed live at cym.org.uk at 19:00 BST.
Stepping away from classical, the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is sharing an online concert on Saturday, 13 June at 19:30 Eastern Caribbean Time. Headline acts are singer and songwriter Michele Henderson; reggae singer and former West Indies cricketer Omari Banks; dancehall artist Colton T; and soca singer Claudette Peters. OECS will host the concert on its Facebook page.
And, if all that isn’t enough, then on Sunday it is the Bang on a Can Marathon from 15:00-21:00. The bill features 10 world premieres, as well as artists like Rhiannon Giddens, Terry Riley, Roscoe Mitchell, Conrad Tao, Don Byron, Nadia Sirota, Nico Muhly, Iva Bittová, Nik Bӓrtsch, Pamela Z and more. The concert is free, though you can support the company by buying a ticket, with 10% of the proceeds going to the Equal Justice Initiative. More at marathon2020.bangonacan.org.
