The Music Department and CFA present the world premiere of the extended work “The Rock and the Redemption” by the Noah Baerman Resonance Ensemble as conclusion of the 14th annual Wesleyan Jazz Orchestra Weekend.
The Noah Baerman Resonance Ensemble is the flagship ensemble of Resonant Motion, and includes vibraphonist Chris Dingman ’02, alto saxophonist/flutist Kris Allen, cellist/vocalist Melanie Hsu ’13, bassist Henry Lugo, Private Lessons Teacher and drummer Bill Carbone MA ’07, Ph.D. Candidate; and vocalists Latanya Farrell, Claire Randall ’12, and Garth Taylor ’12. Mr. Baerman will augment his piano work with turns on synthesizer and slide guitar.
The music is inspired by a reinterpretation of the myth of Sisyphus, in which the tragic figure’s plight of eternally pushing a rock up a mountain is seen as an inevitable and inspiring response to life’s adversity.
