“The ROOTS of JAZZ”
Ragtime, Blues, Klezmer, and more

A very intimate House Concert and fundraiser for Baltimore Green Space featuring clarinetist Steve Loew and pianist Daniel Weiser performing music of Gershwin, Joplin, Goodman, Artie Shaw, and more

November 18, 2018

      

A special fundraiser for Baltimore Green Space, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that partners with communities to preserve and support community gardens, forest patches, pocket parks, and other open spaces managed by city residents.   Join us for this very unique and intimate House Concert exploring the “Roots of Jazz” with Steve Loew, clarinet, and Daniel Weiser, piano.   They will focus on New York City from the early 20th century to the 1940’s when waves of Eastern European immigrants converged upon the city at the same time as the Great Migration of African-Americans from the South.  Both groups brought along their own musical heritage that would ultimately cross-fertilize and help to produce a distinctly new American sound—Jazz.   The concert will include Ragtime, Blues, Dixieland, Klezmer as well as great tunes by Gershwin, Benny Goodman, and Artie Shaw.   Loew and Weiser have performed in over 20 different countries and “bring an infectious excitement” to everything they play.

AmiciMusic, meaning “Music among Friends,” was founded by Artistic Director Daniel Weiser in 2011 while he was living in Asheville, NC.  While still performing monthly programs in Asheville, Dr, Weiser moved to Baltimore, MD in 2013 where he also started an AmiciMusic branch.  It is a non-profit (501c3) chamber music organization dedicated to performing high quality music in intimate settings and non-traditional venues.  AmiciMusic performs a wide variety of music from classical to jazz, utilizing the talents of world-class singers and instrumentalists from across the country and around the world.  They perform regularly in schools, Assisted Living homes, Churches, libraries, private homes, restaurants, bars, and more.
