(ENGLEWOOD, NJ) -- The Black Box Performing Arts Center invites you to a live music concert featuring acclaimed local pianist Carolyn Enger, on Sunday, October 31, at 4:00pm. In collaboration with Peabody Award winning broadcaster, producer, and director Elliott Forrest (WQXR), Myles Aronowitz, photographer and filmmaker, and internationally-exhibited photographer and environmental activist J Henry Fair, this cinematic experience transports listeners to a still, meditative space. It invites introspection about our place on the planet, inspiring action to protect our beautiful, fragile world. Ms Enger will accompany the film, performing music by J.S. Bach, John Luther Adams, Eric Satie, Oliver Messiaen, John Cage, Caroline Shaw, Wolfgang Rihm, Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass and Claude Debussy.
Carolyn Enger, concert pianist and speaker, has gained critical acclaim for her deeply felt performances and her thoughtful programs informed by a keen sense of history, identity, and personal connection. Ms. Enger has enjoyed remarkable success as a recording artist: The New York Times selected her Naxos recording of intimate Ned Rorem miniatures, Piano Album I & Six Friends, as one of the newspaper’s “Best In Classical Recordings” for that year, writing “Among the 90th-birthday tributes this year to the essential American composer Ned Rorem, this recording especially stands out,” while Gramophone declared, “Enger raises the miniatures to a higher level.”
Tickets are available for purchase online. Black Box Performing Arts Center is a non profit arts organization, located at 49 E Palisade Ave in Englewood, New Jersey. Masks are required for unvaccinated patrons at ALL TIMES. Please bring proof of vaccination.
