Dorothy Hindman at 50: A Chamber Music Retrospective at Weil

$5,070

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? For Miami-based composer Dorothy Hindman, it has taken 50 years, as she celebrates her golden birthday with a chamber music retrospective March 8, 2016 at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall

Dorothy Hindman at 50: A Chamber Music Retrospective
Dorothy Hindman at 50: A Chamber Music Retrospective

Blending punk and grunge with spectralist sensibility, Hindman’s music has been called “intense and rewarding,” (South Florida Classical Review) “dramatic, highly strung,” (Fanfare), and “music of terrific romantic gesture,” (The Buffalo News). Concertgoers will hear multiple world and NYC premieres of her 21st century chamber music, plus milestone career pieces performed by some of new music’s preeminent musicians.  

Guest artists... 

include cellist Craig Hultgren premiering the brand new Rough Ride in honor of Freddie Gray, double bassist Robert Black performing the award-winning Time Management, Paul Bowman performing the poignant Needlepoint for classical guitar, and Stuart Gerber with the monumental Tapping the Furnace percussion solo. 

Spectacular ensembles... 

round out the program, including Bent Frequency Duo performing R.I.P.T. from Hindman’s Trademarking Trayvon cycle, PULSE performing Heroic Measures, Dale Underwood and Margaret Donaghue Flavin premiering Entwined, Underwood and the Frost Saxophone Quartet on Hindman’s Drift, and NYC’s own Empire City Men’s Chorus presenting two of Hindman’s affirmative settings on marriage equality and brotherhood. 

As a special treat, Hindman’s son, 17 year old virtuoso pianist Jacob Mason, will perform her Steinway Preludes, marking his Carnegie debut. 

Donations from this Kickstarter campaign will provide travel assistance for Hindman’s out of town performers, especially graduate students in the Frost Saxophone Quartet, led by saxophone legend Dale Underwood. Any additional funds will be applied to programs, posters and other publicity materials, and hall expenses.

Risks and challenges

The worst thing that could happen, even if this is successfully funded, is that a talented musician is unable to perform at THE concert hall, NYC's Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, because he or she cannot afford the travel expenses and is not aware that sufficient funds are being raised.

In every case, the artists who were asked to perform on the March 8, 2016 concert said yes without hesitation, even though there were no funds to offer them. In some cases, the musicians live in NYC and will not incur substantial expenses, but in an equal number of cases, they are traveling from long distances, including Iowa, North Carolina, and Hindman's hometown of Miami, FL.

This concert is not just an important event for Hindman, it is an event for every performer on the program, who will enjoy the accomplishment of a Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall performance. We hope to make it possible for every invited musician to make this trip and further their own careers in the process, regardless of their financial situation.
