Ke-nekt’ Chamber Music Series: Violinist Jeremy Mastrangelo
Host: Juan La Manna | Pre-concert Talk: 7:00 PM
Jeremy Mastrangelo served as Associate Concertmaster of the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra from 2001
until the orchestra’s dissolution in April 2011. In December of 2010, he was appointed to be the orchestra’s next concertmaster. During his tenure with the SSO he was a featured soloist on multiple occasions, including performances of Bach’s Concerto for two violins with Jaime Laredo, Brahms’ “Double“ Concerto, the Sibelius violin concerto, and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
He has been a guest concertmaster with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, the Omaha Symphony, the Oregon Symphony, and the National Ballet of Canada. Since the 2011-2012 season, Jeremy has performed regularly with the National Arts Centre Orchestra as guest principal second violin, under Pinchas Zukerman. He was guest associate concertmaster for the orchestra’s tour to China, and has been guest concertmaster as well.
The Guitar duo of Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge is a collaborative effort founded in the roots of
acoustic music, exploring the worlds of improvisation and composition.
With Lage’s background in modern jazz and new music, and Eldridge’s deep relationship with bluegrass as well as his being a member of the widely acclaimed band, Punch Brothers, this duo lives at the nexus of improvisation, spontaneous composition, and virtuosic refinement, all performed on their respective 1939 Martin guitars.
Direct from Dakar, this chorus of sixteen singers and four traditional drummers performs repertoire ranging from familiar spirituals and traditional African songs to the magnificent masses composed by their noted founder, Julian Jouga.
They are joined by SUNY Oswego’s State Singers who will sing “Vamuvamba” (They Crucified Him) by Boniface Mganga and “Tshotshoroza” arr. by Jeffery Ames.
The Focus on Faculty series continues as OJP’s Trevor Jorgensen (saxophone), Eric Schmitz (drums), and Rob Auler (keyboards) are joined by the group’s new bassist, Danny Zieman, for a program of standards and original compositions.
Patrons may park in the lots across from Sheldon Hall (E-a5, C-15). See Campus Map
