Darlene love was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2011 and she was featured in the film 20 Feet From Stardom in 2013.  In 2014, that documentary won an Academy Award and Darlene was featured from the Dolby Theater stage on the Academy Awards Show.  As she raised the Oscar, the entire house stood with a cheering ovation lead by the wildly applauding Bill Murray. Introducing Darlene Love marked the first new, full-length album of original pop songs in 27 years from the renowned vocalist, who has achieved legendary status for her enduring work with Phil Spector and as one of the most prolific backup singers of all time.  Now, with the spirited Love deservedly back in center spotlight, the album is being welcomed to worldwide acclaim: “Girl group royal takes back her throne,” heralded Rolling Stone, “Love comes at it like a wrecking ball, husky alto thrillingly intact; “A stunning collection of vibrant, dramatic rock anthems and R&B workouts” wrote Entertainment Weekly; “Love singing at maximum intensity” noted the L.A. Times, with the above-mentioned NY Daily News praising the album as a “soaring work” and revealing that “Love has lost none of her talents and has never sounded more unsinkable.” Electric Review proclaimed, “if you’re too young to have experienced first-hand the excitement that came with hearing a new Darlene Love song ache through the jukebox or car radio, Introducing Darlene Love will cast you back to a place of innocence and faith, shepherding you back to a time when people gathered in the misty fields, steadfastly holding to the belief that music was about to change the world.” [less-]

The critically-acclaimed Chameleon Arts Ensemble continues its fall chamber music season with “earthly echoes, celestial song” featuring Olivier Messiaen’s epic masterpiece, Quartet for the End of Time. The work’s origin is nothing short of miraculous. It was composed while Messiaen was a prisoner of war for the instruments on hand among the camp’s inmates – violin, cello, clarinet, and piano – and the premiere took place in an unheated barrack on January 15, 1941, before an audience of fellow prisoners and German officers. Overflowing with genius and invention, the Quartet stands as one of history’s greatest musical achievements, transporting us to a place between earthly suffering and the ecstasy of heaven, between measured time and boundless eternity, between sound and silence. It remains as powerful today as it was in 1941. Rounding out the program are Debussy’s exquisite Afternoon of a Faun and Haydn’s "Sunrise" Quartet. PROGRAM: Claude Debussy: Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune for flute & piano David Ludwig: Pleiades for oboe & piano Franz Josef Haydn: String Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 76. No. 4 “Sunrise” Olivier Messiaen: Quatuor pour la fin du temps for clarinet, violin, cello & piano [less-]

Introducing Darlene Love marked the first new, full-length album of original pop songs in 27 years from the renowned vocalist, who has achieved legendary status for her enduring work with Phil Spector and as one of the most prolific backup singers of all time.  Now, with the spirited Love deservedly back in center spotlight, the album is being welcomed to worldwide acclaim: “Girl group royal takes back her throne,” heralded Rolling Stone, “Love comes at it like a wrecking ball, husky alto thrillingly intact; “A stunning collection of vibrant, dramatic rock anthems and R&B workouts” wrote Entertainment Weekly; “Love singing at maximum intensity” noted the L.A. Times, with the above-mentioned NY Daily News praising the album as a “soaring work” and revealing that “Love has lost none of her talents and has never sounded more unsinkable.” Electric Review proclaimed, “if you’re too young to have experienced first-hand the excitement that came with hearing a new Darlene Love song ache through the jukebox or car radio, Introducing Darlene Love will cast you back to a place of innocence and faith, shepherding you back to a time when people gathered in the misty fields, steadfastly holding to the belief that music was about to change the world.” [less-]

The critically-acclaimed Chameleon Arts Ensemble continues its fall chamber music season with “earthly echoes, celestial song” featuring Olivier Messiaen’s epic masterpiece, Quartet for the End of Time. The work’s origin is nothing short of miraculous. It was composed while Messiaen was a prisoner of war for the instruments on hand among the camp’s inmates – violin, cello, clarinet, and piano – and the premiere took place in an unheated barrack on January 15, 1941, before an audience of fellow prisoners and German officers. Overflowing with genius and invention, the Quartet stands as one of history’s greatest musical achievements, transporting us to a place between earthly suffering and the ecstasy of heaven, between measured time and boundless eternity, between sound and silence. It remains as powerful today as it was in 1941. Rounding out the program are Debussy’s exquisite Afternoon of a Faun and Haydn’s "Sunrise" Quartet. PROGRAM: Claude Debussy: Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune for flute & piano David Ludwig: Pleiades for oboe & piano Franz Josef Haydn: String Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 76. No. 4 “Sunrise” Olivier Messiaen: Quatuor pour la fin du temps for clarinet, violin, cello & piano [less-]
