Concert meets meditation tonight when Re: Charge series kicks off in Orlando
They say music can heal. Well, Re: Charge – a joint holistic event by Creative City Project and Timucua Arts Foundation – explicitly exploits this power. From tonight and until next weekend, the Re: Charge series is somewhere between a concert and a meditation.
A large empty space in the Colonial Promenade shopping center will be adorned with clouds and candles while an accomplished set of nine players under the direction of the Executive Director of Timucua Belt Chris play a 75 minute live orchestral performance to heal your broken soul. Each participant will be assigned their own personal space to lie down; just bring your own yoga mat, pillow or woobie. And wine – the king of all things relaxing – will be available for donation.
The program will present a mix of contemporary and classical music from composers Anthony R. Green, Jordan Nobles, Ian Clarke, Katie Mess, JS Bach, Astor Piazzolla and Gerald Law II, with collective improvisations. And the ensemble will play:
Chris Belt – musical direction and guitar
Katie Mess – flute
Natalie Grata – clarinet
Beatriz Ramirez – oboe
Gerald Law II – percussion and electronics
Elizabeth A. Baker – electronic
Charles Edouard Glazer – violin / viola
Jean-Marie Glazer – cello and voice
Brandon Miller – bass
Each evening will have two performances, at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. The event address is 4644 E. Colonial Drive, Suite 4308, Orlando, FL, 32803. And tickets are available here.
