New Show Announcement
SubCulture is a new venue bringing eclectic yet accessible music and creative arts performances to the vibrant NoHo neighborhood. A home away from home for those who love art in all its many facets, the venue plays host to a dynamic range of performances, genre-defying music series, and stimulating cultural presentations. With its intimate and evocative space, SubCulture was designed to put the focus on performers and their craft, producing a unique connection between artist and audience.
Ultimately, SubCulture is a place like no other in the city — a subterranean music-and-arts oasis hidden beneath the streets of New York.
Xiayin Wang is a long time friend of Highline, and appeared as a guest at our last concert at Sleep No More.
Highlights of Xiayin’s 2013-14 season include a world premiere performance of Richard Danielpour’s Concerto for Two Pianos with fellow pianist Ray Wong at New York’s Alice Tully Hall. Ms. Wang will be presented in a five-concert series at Merkin Hall at the Kaufman Center in New York, where she will collaborate with, among others, the Escher Quartet and the Fine Arts Quartet. She and the Fine Arts Quartet will give the world premiere of a work by Sean Hickey. She will also appear at Merkin Hall twice with the Washington Soloists Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Vladimir Lande, performing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 and Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 1. She will also play Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto with Maestro Lande in January 2014 at the National Gallery in Washington, DC. In February she will be heard in the Yin/Chu Yellow River Piano Concerto with Canada’s Calgary Philharmonic, conducted by Roberto Minczuk, and in March she is slated to play Gershwin’s Concerto in F with the Southwest Florida Symphony, Nir Kabaretti conducting. Ms Wang will travel with the Fine Arts Quartet to Naples, Italy, for a chamber concert series at the Naples Music Conservatory, after which she appears as guest soloist with the National Symphony of Cuba.
