Musician Bios: The Wadsworth Strings Ensemble features music for classical strings, from the symphonies of Mozart and Haydn, to well known arias from the operas of Puccini and Bizet, adding in a selection of continental Viennese waltzes and French cabaret. Musicians of The Claremont Strings Ensemble have performed collectively at Weill Hall, Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and throughout the Northeast, playing a diverse range of symphonic and chamber music, eclectic jazz, and gypsy swing. Wadsworth Strings, emanating from the Washington Heights area, is a division of Claremont Strings, founded by Vivian Penham, a graduate of the Juilliard School and Columbia University. The Freedom Now Project is a collaborative music ensemble that features digital and acoustic instruments. The music that these three musicians create together, is a collage of styles, themes, and motifs at the service of freedom in all aspects of living and being. The music draws inspiration from philosophers, like Maxine Greene, Cornel West, Roland Barthes, and Michel Foucault, as well as artists, like Coltrane, Miles, Stevie Wonder, Duke Ellington, Sting, Soulive and Robert Glasper. The band is made up of current doctoral students and graduates of Teachers College. The members are Tyreek Jackson - bass/beat machine, Daniel Hartig - guitar/effects, and Jarritt Sheel - trumpet/deejay. #TheFreedomNowProject Char is a group of friends from the Music department here in TC. Yan Colon-Leon, Tim Perry, and Lindsay Burstedt met last year while taking a course together and have been playing music ever since. They recently came back from China where they had the opportunity to not only perform, but to learn and coexist with other Chinese music students and share community through music. Back in New York, and with renovated spirits, they aspire to keep making music together and with others. The Cadenza String Trio comprises Evan Riehl, cellist, and Shane Bordeau and Enrico Zanardo, guitarists.
