Out of Leftovers
"Out of Leftovers" is a new informal performance series at Symphony Space that is prepared to quash several pains at once -- a hunger for live music in the neighborhood, a hunger for a tasty meal, and sheer exhaustion. If you're an Upper West Side family with kids, chances are that your weekends are filled with birthday parties, sports leagues and music recitals. By Sunday afternoon your refrigerator is empty and everyone is wiped. This is our reality, too, and we're going to fix it. On two First Sundays in April and May (April 7 and May 5), we are piloting "Out of Leftovers" at Bar Thalia, the cafe & bar inside Symphony Space, at the corner of 95th and Broadway. The cafe opens at 5pm and we will fill the room with music at 5:30. There is a very tasty menu (go look!) as well as beer, wine and cocktails available. The music is free -- your donations are greatly appreciated -- and seating is available on a first come, first served basis. The series is being curated by Ljova (a.k.a. Lev Zhurbin), the Russian-born composer and performer and long-time Upper West Sider. Ljova has composed music for Yo-Yo Ma and the Silkroad Ensemble, the City of London Sinfonia and The Louisville Orchestra, arranged for the Kronos Quartet, and collaborated with dozens of independent filmmakers and choreographers large and small. He leads the ensemble Ljova and the Kontraband and lives on the Upper West Side with his wife, the vocalist Inna Barmash, and their two children. On April 7th at 5:30pm, join us for our inaugural concert featuring Ljova in collaboration with the wonderful accordionist Simone Baron (direct from Washington DC) and the Vilna-born vocalist Inna Barmash. On May 5 at 5:30pm, join us for a neighborhood klezmer jam led by clarinettist Jeff Perlman, with accordionist Shoko Nagai and additional musicians to be confirmed. Please join us and help us launch this inaugural neighborhood series!
