Just when you thought Sundays couldn’t get any cooler, the 5th summer of Jelly NYC’s Pool Parties is upon us! This year’s schedule has been posted on their website, and it’s pretty stacked. I went to one of these in the McCarren Park Pool (drained) several years ago that rocked my flippin’ socks off. Anyway, check it out. I’m sure you won’t be able to resist at least one of these…
Hey there WPRB listeners!
WPRB is happy to announce that it will soon be airing (date TBA) an exclusive interview with Ralph Farris, the violist of the string quartet ETHEL about their new record Oshtali. Formed in 1998, the string quartet ETHEL dedicates itself to the performance of contemporary and new music. For the past five years, they have been in residence at the Native American Composers Apprenticeship Project, a part of the Grand Canyon Music Festival. Recently, they have worked with the Chickasaw Nation collaborating with young composers from the ages of 13 to 21. The final product of this collaboration has resulted in the fantastic new recording entitled Oshtali in which ETHEL performs many pieces by these young composers. Keep an eye out for the broadcast date of our interview!
Better late than never! Last weekend we were lucky enough to bring some turntables and t-shirts to Art All Night 2010 in Trenton. If you ask me, the event was a massive success. We saw some great art, ate some delicious food, met some awesome people and listened to a boatload of fantastic tunes. I don’t know who took these pictures, but they were on my camera the next morning. Take a look. You know you want in on this next year.
