THE WALDEN SCHOOL PARTNERS WITH THE INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ENSEMBLE (ICE) TO COMMISSION AND PREMIERE NEW MUSIC BY SIX FACULTY AND EIGHT STUDENTS
Student works to be performed as part of Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival’s 50th Anniversary Celebration; student performers collaborate with ICE in presenting music by George Lewis and Pauline Oliveros
July 12, 2016, DUBLIN, NH—Each summer The Walden School welcomes young musicians (ages 9-18) to work and play alongside renowned performers and composers, together fostering enthusiasm for creating new music into the 21st century. This is Walden’s second year partnering with the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), and the anticipation is high.
“We are especially excited about the collaboration students experience on both levels. They witness the spirit of creative teamwork modeled by their faculty artists and the professional ensemble, and learn how to develop that high-level interaction themselves, among their peers,” says Executive Director Seth Brenzel, himself an alumus (1985-1990) of this extraordinary program. “We are honored to have established relationships with many of ICE’s members as performing and teaching artists over the years,” he adds.
ICE pianist Jacob Greenberg says, “Walden is a uniquely intense and encouraging environment for its students. It’s not every day that we’re able to collaborate with students as engaged, curious, and gung-ho as the ones we meet here. We throw a lot of crazy stuff at these students, and they rarely bat an eye!”
