Details

From opera to electro-acoustic pop, singer IVA’s versatile voice has garnered rave reviews for her unique sound and style. Described as Madonna meets Enya, with an operatic twist, IVA has received critical acclaim from Billboard magazine, performed on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien, debuted at the Royal Opera in Stockholm and released two pop albums.

Philadelphia’s own Tripod Trio (Rie Suzuki, clarinet; Timothy Schwarz, violin; and David Pasbrig, piano) joins as a co-collaborator, drawing from a repertoire of classical standards and 20th century compositions.

Together, IVA and Tripod Trio present a program of musical contrasts, rooted in the classical realm but expanding to include a range of musical styles, with works by Béla Bartók and Sebastian Currier, Scandinavian art songs and original pop music.

Since 2008, LiveConnections has served as a creator and curator of innovative, cross-genre music experiences. Our ClassicAlive series “The Collaborators” expands how classical music is experienced by breaking boundaries of repertoire, collaboration and atmosphere in innovative concerts designed to attract both new audiences and long-time classical fans.

ClassicAlive: Q&A with Jordan Dodson

Kristin LeeJune 3, 2014 - Jordan Dodson is a young, classically trained guitar player who graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music — but he’s equally at home playing Bach as he is pop, minimalist or electronic music. He’s commissioned scores of new works from young composers to play as solos and with his group Marcel (founded at Curtis under the guidance of composition faculty — and previous LiveConnections collaborator — David Ludwig). In our May 4, 2014, concert at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington, co-presented by the Wilmington Classical Guitar Society, Jordan performed works by several of his favorite young composers. We caught up with Jordon to hear more about his passion for new music.

We caught up with Kristin to talk about her love for new, contemporary music and how her collaborations with instruments including steel pan, theremin and Indian singing evolved from the moment of commissioning.
