(Be)longing

Presented by the International Festival of Arts & Ideas
 

Created by the award-winning team of Byron Au Yong and Aaron Jafferis, (Be)longing is a powerful performance event reflecting our society’s collective emergence from large-scale tragedies. Locally cast singers, beatboxers, and hip-hop artists present an original, staged oratorio about belonging, isolation, healing, and community. Prompted by our collective understanding and judgments around the Virginia Tech and Newtown tragedies, (Be)longing reflects on the impact of violence and considers deeper ways to connect and build communities of safety and support.

TROKER & Fulaso in Concert

Presented by the International Festival of Arts & Ideas
 

TROKER
Six musicians from all over Mexico, with different influences but the same goal of creating mesmerizing rhythms and presenting unrepeatable live experiences, Troker’s sound careens between the sublime and the dangerous. Metal riffage merges with powerhouse funk drumming and DJ scratching, and melodic horn lines are pulled from jazz and the mariachi traditions of the band’s homeland. From SXSW to the Glastonbury Festival, the band has toured around the world creating music that excites the audiences’ senses, but more importantly, music that inspires the soul.

Fulaso
Fulaso’s FUnky LAtin SOul sound creates a soul-affirming, dance floor-burning party. Their music emanates from New York City and is rooted in Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Colombia, mixing the hottest boogaloo classic arrangements with bumpin' neo-soul originals. The band blends traditional music with sixties soul and funk grooves to create a powerful new sound. Headed by an unstoppably soulful songstress, Fulaso surprises and delights audiences with hefty brass and raucous rhythms.

Cost: Free

Venue: New Haven Green: Keybank Stage - 148 Church Street, New Haven, CT

Whitman, Melville, Dickinson- Passions of Bloom

Presented by the International Festival of Arts & Ideas

Martin Bresnick's world premiere oratorio—a large-scale work for soloists, chorus, and orchestra—takes the thoughts of Harold Bloom, master teacher and secular evangelist of American Literature at Yale University, on a musical journey of passion, insight, and personal revelation. Performed by Yale Choral Artists under the direction of Jeffrey Douma, this world premiere is modeled on Bach’s St. John Passion oratorio, but centers on the lives of legendary poets Walt Whitman, Herman Melville, and Emily Dickinson.

Wu Man + Miró Quartet

Presented by the International Festival of Arts & Ideas

East meets West as Grammy nominated musician Wu Man and the award-winning Miró Quartet perform a Festival co-commissioned world premiere work "Gardenia" by Chinese composer Xiaogang Ye.

Rarely is a western audience the first to experience new music from this legendary Chinese artist. The performance marks Wu Man's return to the Festival—recognized as the world's premier pipa virtuoso—and the Festival debut of the Austin, Texas-based, internationally touring Miró Quartet.

On "Gardenia":  

Composed for string quartet and Pipa (a traditional Chinese instrument), "Gardenia" was commissioned in 2016. This work is among the subtropical plants series of composer Xiaogang Ye’s works, in which include "Enchanted Bamboo," "Hibiscus," "Datura," "December Chrysanthemum," "Scent of Green Mango," etc. These works show the Southern-originated musician’s sensitivity and attention to the natural environment in a country of the Far East.

"Gardenia" indistinctly means eternal joy in Chinese context. It is born in a moist natural environment with a kind of faintly fragrant scent; its white color is of high aesthetic value to Asians. And it is usually used as food and medicine in South Asia. The gardenia honey is with mild sweet and faint sweet. The Gardenia is also a city flower of Yueyang City, which is a quiet and distant small city located in Hunan Province, South of China. When composing this work, the composer adopted folk operas and folk songs in the area of Yueyuang, showing his yearning and a sense of loss to the beautiful scenery in South China.
