SHERIDAN — Whitney Center for the Arts has released its performance lineup for the 2019 – 2020 season. Every year, these performances bring award-winning artists and musicians to Sheridan and the surrounding communities.
The 2019-2020 season includes 10 events that represent a wide variety of genres and musical offerings. Kicking off the season in September is Yarn/Wire, a quartet of two percussionists and two pianists that TimeOutNY referred to as “fearless” and possessing “spell binding virtuosity.” Next up is the acclaimed New York-based Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company, who for nearly two decades have moved audiences with their entertaining flair, stylistic diversity, musicality, innovation and accessibility.
A busy November begins with the return of the Whitney Center Jazz Orchestra to the Kinnison Hall Stage. Next the Whitney Center will welcome the nationally recognized Lorelei Ensemble, who are known for their programs that champion the extraordinary flexibility and virtuosity of the human voice. The Skyline Singers — Sheridan College’s newest Ensemble-in-Residence — will entertain with varied selections that showcase music from the past 400 years.
Grammy-nominated string orchestra A Far Cry will warm up the cold February winter with their distinct approach to music-making. Janet Feder is next in the season. She is widely known for pioneering composition for guitar, and has been featured on numerous recordings, radio programs, and film scores.
In April, the Boston Brass will feature performances of exciting classical arrangements and jazz favorites. The Denver-based Colorado Chamber Players, together with the French Stanislas Quartet, will perform classical chamber string music. The 2019-2020 season will conclude with the Sheridan College Ensemble-in-Residence Wyoming Baroque, who specialize in historically informed performances of 17th- and 18th-century repertoire as well as contemporary compositions.
