One World Consort & J.P. Jofre Celebrate Earth Day 2015
In celebration of Earth Day 2015, One World Consort presents a special concert featuring Argentine NYC-based bandoneon virtuoso, J. P. Jofre. One World Consort performs a synthesis of jazz, classical, and indigenous folk music, featuring music from a spectrum of world cultures. One World Consort and J.P Jofre will perform special arrangements of Jofre's contemporary tango compositions, including Hard Tango, Primavera, and Universe, along with OWC's diverse repertoire, from a broad range of musical traditions.
“J.P.” Jofre has been repeatedly highlighted by the New York Times and praised as one of today’s leading bandoneon artists by Great Performers at Lincoln Center. A recipient of the National Prize of the Arts grant in Argentina, Mr. Jofre has taken his form of contemporary tango to some of the most important venues in Asia, Europe, America and the Caribbean as soloist and composer.
One World Consort features Minneapolis/St. Paul-based multi-instrumentalist David Milne on saxophones, flutes, and indigenous wind instruments, in an innovative jazz quartet setting with Mary Louise Knutson (piano and keyboards), Eric Graham (acoustic and electric basses), and Craig Hara (drums and percussion).
One World Consort features The Four Voices String Quartet: Laurie Petruconis (violin), Allison Ostrander (violin), Susan Janda (viola), and Rebecca Arons (cello). “One of string quartet music’s brightest lights in the Twin Cities, the Four Voices String Quartet brings fresh and abundant energy to classical and contemporary string quartet compositions,” remarks Laurie Patton, Producer for Baby Blue Arts.
