Local Classical Featured Playlist – 01/23/23 – 02/05/23
In this week’s playlist, we highlight the upcoming event, Requiem for the Adrift and Shattered! Indianapolis pianist Clare Longendyke brings healing through art in new multimedia work on January 29. The project, curated and performed by pianist Clare Longendyke, is the result of the Faith, Justice, and the Arts Grant from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Indianapolis, which Longendyke was awarded in 2021. The project focuses on creating artistic means of examining injustices happening in today’s world and generating collective pathways towards catharsis and healing. The performance features four new works for solo piano by composers Emily Koh, Rex Isenberg, Nkeiru Okoye, and Reinaldo Moya along with a new film created by Indianapolis filmmaker Deonna Weatherly and Weatherhouse Company.
The premiere of Requiem for the Adrift and Shattered will take place on Sunday, January 29 at 4:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Indianapolis (6050 N. Meridian St.). A reprise performance is scheduled for Sunday, February 5 at 4:00 p.m. at the Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation (6501 N. Meridian St.). Connect to this playlist to hear Clare discuss the upcoming premiere and music by the composers featured on the project.
