Gary Nader Art Centre is proud to present an exhibition by Brazilian contemporary master Claudio Tozzi. The exhibition “Territorios” will feature Tozzi’s most recent work and will be on view from March 2 through April 2 at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood, located at 62nd NE 27th Street.  Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Claudio Tozzi initiated his career as an artist in the early ‘60s, with the appropriation of objects, images taken from newspapers, comics and photos associated with social issues through symbolic connotations. In the ‘70s, he created a new syntax through the construction of a thread of reticules and chromatic granulations that led to structures and spaces full of intense symbolic meanings. From the ‘80s until his more recent works, he intensified his formal concerns and started to work with basic structural elements such as lines, planes, colors and organic forms and materials that create formal analogies with pre-existing images and enlarge their constructive characteristics. Gary Nader Art Centre is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands,” by setting it in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences. Each movement combines some characteristics of its language-group’s musical culture with the composer’s own musical language. Movements include liturgical Latin, intertwined Hebrew and Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu, Spanish, Song of the Earth (untexted), and a closing movement combining several of these languages with English. The result is a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one, “omnis terra, jubilate!”

Tour Bach’s Organ World, July 17-28

Noted organist Lee Ridgway leads this year’s tour to cities and organs with connections to J. S. Bach, as well as other organs of historic importance. The tour is centered around Dresden, Leipzig, Wittenberg, and Berlin, with day trips to Naumburg, Halle, Altenburg, Störmthal, and Tangermünde. Organs include instruments by Silbermann, Scherer, Ladegast, and Sauer. Of particular importance are organs by Hildebrant and Trost which Bach played and knew well.

The tour, of which this is the 5th edition, originated with Quentin and Mary Murrell Faulkner, who asked Lee to take over in their stead. Lee participated in two previous tours, and has extensive experience with historic organs in Europe, including those on the tour.

Time is built into the schedule for organists to play the instruments, as well as hear about their history and restoration. But the tour is not only for organists! It is for anyone interested in historic cities, churches, and organs, and in seeing the magnificent attractions of eastern Germany reborn since reunification. Plenty of time is in the schedule for sightseeing.

The well-organized tour includes stays in mostly 4-star hotels, many meals, city tours of Dresden and Berlin, and more. Accompanying the tour is English-speaking German guide, Lothar Mohlmann, who also assisted with the previous four tours.

New Visions, New Voices is the first in what we hope to become an annual series of concerts highlighting newer American Art Song.

In Europe, the art song traditions goes back centuries with famous Lieder, Chanson and Canzone by Mozart, Bellini, Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Debussy and more. While the focus for classical vocal music is and always has been on Opera and Operetta, there are composers writing new and exciting Art Songs for singers every day.

Our first concert will feature works from Lee Hoiby, Ned Rorem, Ben Moore, Jack Gardner, and Andy Vores performed by Jennifer Zamorano, soprano and Shanna Nolan Gundry, mezzo-soprano, accompanied on the piano by Justin Landers.

Tickets are $30.
