New Music Salon:
Pete Carney Quartet
Salon: Monday, September 13
5:30 p.m. EDT
$10 (included with season subscription)
Join the accomplished composer, saxophonist, and improviser Dr. Peter Carney and his quartet (John O’Leary on piano, Hiram Hazley on bass, and Henley Connor on drums) for a high energy afternoon of original and modern jazz compositions, Buena Vista Social Club music, and innovative Radiohead arrangements. This event is the first in our series of Fall Salons that bring together new directions in contemporary music with the opportunity for conversation and social connection. Dr. Carney’s unique perspectives on jazz and music composition will be a starting point for post-concert discussion.
Peter Carney, Director of Jazz Studies at State College of Florida, studied music composition at the University of Michigan with William Bolcom and Bright Sheng, and subsequently earned his doctorate in Jazz from the University of Illinois. He has performed and conducted at venues around the United States and Europe, most notably with his group Orange Alert and recently with the Peter Carney Quartet. An innovator in the field of education, his music appreciation app Interactive Listening is used in schools around the world and was named #1 Editor’s Choice by Apple Inc upon its release in 2012.
