Where I’ll be the next few days, in case you’re drooling with envy (or exhausted just reading about it):
Tonight, Friday March 4 (8:00 PM): The Davidovsky Portrait concert by the International Contemporary Ensemble (which includes the way-cool DePauw alum Eric Lamb) at Columbia University’s Miller Theatre.
Saturday March 5 (7:30 PM): Les Percussions de Strasbourg perform an all-Xenaxis program, players on stages throughout the hall (I love surround-sound), part of the Tully Scope 2011 Festival. That’s the mash-up, shuffle-venue series at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, with it’s incredible new lobby. Free glass of sparkling wine (or Pellegrino) after the concerts in the party-atmosphere lobby. Half-price tickets often available day-of-concert at the Rubenstein Atrium, or if you buy one at full price you can buy others for just $20.
Sunday March 6 (10:00 PM) : Zoe Keating, one of my favorite multi-tracking, looping cellists, and Todd Reynolds at [le] poisson rouge. The first show is sold out; my daughter and I are going to the 10:00 PM, for which as of this writing tickets are still available.
Monday March 7: Back to Tully Scope for Tyondai Braxton with the Wordless Music Orchestra. A friend went to a quasi-open rehearsal last night at LPR and said it is not to be missed. So I’m not going to!
After that, I haven’t yet decided!
