|Electric Earth Concerts is continuing its series of videocasts, and we are excited to be back, bringing these wonderful performances to our audience. Continuing last year’s promised “Changing the Conversation” event, and in celebration of Juneteenth 2021, this concert will present a major work of Olly Wilson (1937-2018): “City of Heaven” for large ensemble. Olly Woodrow Wilson, Jr. was an American composer of contemporary classical music, pianist, double bassist, and musicologist. He was one of the preeminent composers of African American descent in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Also on the program are “Grist for the Mill,” a work by Duke University composer Anthony Kelley, who earned his Ph.D. studying with Wilson; Mark Kuss’s arrangement of “7 Spirituals and Work Songs of the United States”; and Ben Johnston’s “Amazing Grace Quartet”, which takes the archetypal hymn as the basis for a wild and deeply moving journey. Professor Kelley will introduce the program. It premieres on Saturday, June 19th at 4 pm. Instructions on how to access this performance will be found at www.electricearthconcerts.org on the morning of the premiere. Access to this virtual event is free, but we will gratefully accept donations. You can find links to our previous videocasts at www.electricearthconcerts.org. We will also be presenting a series of live concerts for live audiences, starting this summer. Descriptions and details about our live concerts is available on our website now.
