Proving Up is a new opera from Opera Omaha written by Missy Mazzoli (music) and Royce Vavrek (libretto). Wednesday the 26th marked its New York premiere (a second performance on Friday the 28th is already sold out). (Your humble correspondent had never seen an opera in his life before tonight, so if you thought this […]
If you’ve ever wanted to feel the warm embrace of a sheet of steel and a Koronet Pizza-sized gong, you got your chance on Tuesday night. The Miller Theatre hosted one of its signature pop-up concerts on Tuesday, a casual event featuring some free drinks that invited its audience members onto the stage for an […]
Deputy Editor and live music aficionado Zack Abrams attended the Miller Theatre last Thursday for the show ‘Glass + Schubert,’ a solo recital by pianist Simone Dinnerstein who performed music by Franz Schubert and Philip Glass. After an enjoyable experience at the Miller Theatre last semester, I was once again excited to see Simone Dinnerstein […]
New Bwogger Jacob Snyder dives into the greatly unappreciated world of on campus string performances and finds a solid gem. The artistically-inclined Columbia student would be making a dire mistake to ignore all that our own Miller Theater has to offer. From Christmas music of the English Renaissance to jazz piano, from Euripides to Steve […]
While you may have too much homework from the first week to get off campus and visit a museum, Bwogger and art lover Gabbie Kloppers brings you a dose of culture right here on campus. Yesterday evening, Gabbie had the opportunity to visit a “Creative Conversation” with visual artist Tomo Mori in the lobby of the […]
Dedicated patron of the arts and Bwog Arts Editor attended the Miller Theatre last night to watch a series of five dance performances featuring Columbia University and Barnard College students. There will be an additional show tonight at 7:30 PM; tickets are still available through Miller Theatre ($12 with CUID). I always love the experience of attending performances […]
Miller Theatre hosts a variety of event showcasing a multitude of artistic genres. Bwogger Amara Banks caught a show in the Jazz Series last night, Saturday, January 30th. After seeing what I thought was the weirdest performance I had ever witnessed at Miller Theatre, I (stupidly and in vain) drafted a mental note to never attend any […]
A Bwog staff writer and committed concertgoer delivers a slice of the sounds of the other John Adams of modern composition. John Luther Adams, a standout in the world of American composition and the recipient of Columbia’s William Schuman Award for 2015, closed out a three-concert series of performances this past Saturday at the Miller Theatre. “Extraordinary Listening: […]
Concerned citizen and Bwog Arts Editor Henry Litwhiler explores the good and the dreadful in Miller Theatre’s opening night. Madness came to us last night. We anticipated it with a cheerful reserve, with the expectation of something quirky, imaginative, and unconventionally euphonic. And why should we have approached it any differently? What indication was there that could’ve warned […]
Baroque buff Henry Litwhiler shines rare appreciation on the elegance of Ohio-based group Les Délices. Saturday’s concert, entitled “Myths & Allegories,” came as part of Miller Theatre’s “Early Music” series, which speaks volumes about the Theatre’s narrow sense of time. It was undoubtedly only with great difficulty that the Theatre capped the series with the baroque instead of extending […]
Bannerman of the baroque Henry Litwhiler revisits Bach with Miller Theatre’s “Bach, Revisited” series. The title of the series is troublesome. “Bach, Revisited” implies that we had, at some point, left behind one of the greatest composers to ever put ink to paper. It implies, further, that the world had at some point deemed Bach’s works […]
After muddling though Missy Mazzoli’s repertoire two weeks ago, acolyte of the avant-garde Henry Litwhiler explores the depths of masochism at the Miller Theatre’s latest Composer Portrait, Italian composer Stefano Gervasoni. Stefano Gervasoni was classically trained under Luca Lombardi, Niccolò Castiglioni, and Azio Corghi at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan and, after a career that brought him […]
Classical connoisseur Henry Litwhiler spent thirsty Thursday drinking from the beer bong of beauty at Miller Theatre’s Composer Portrait of the unclassifiable Missy Mazzoli. Dubbed in 2010 by Time Out New York as “Brooklyn’s post-Millenial Mozart,” composer Missy Mazzoli has enjoyed mounting fame in the New York and global classical scenes. Her 2012 premiere of Song […]
On Thursday night, American classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein had a “Special Event” concert at Miller Theatre. Muhly-phile Alexandra Svokos was there, though unfortunately missed the first piece (Bach’s Two-Part Inventions for keyboard, BWV 772-786) for a class. Simone Dinnerstein is full of presence and feelings. From her face and posture as she plays, she appears to […]
As campus groups are still rolling into the new season and you still don’t have a shit-ton of work, why not go further? Break out of the bubble while you still have the chance and catch some of Bwog staff’s cultural picks for the week. Columbia: The Institute for Comparative Literature and Society is hosting […]
