So&So Orchestra | First Movement | Bach Chorales

October 5th, 7PM and October 6th, 2PM & 7PM

Ariadne Greif, Melissa Harvey, Luke MacMillan, and David Charles Tay, sing one-on-a-part Bach in a concert of old and new music with So & So Orchestra in Brooklyn.

First movement is a collaboration between choreographer Or Meir Schreiber and a chamber orchestra.

Throughout the night two pieces of music will be presented, one very old— Bach orchestral suite n. 3— and one very new, a world premiere of Jordan Hall’s “Blueprint”.

Or Meir Schreiber
Former dancer in Batsheva Dance Company, where he worked for many years with Mr. Gaga- Ohad Naharin. Growing up in Israel and moving to New York, Or has created a unique language, blending the middle-eastern flexibility and rigidness, with influences of Hip-hop.

Jordan Hall
His music has been described as “stirring and poignant” (AllAboutJazz), “a vibrant, imaginative composition… rapturous” (Textura). Using textures that range from lush symphonic to visceral soundscapes, he has composed for a spectrum of ensembles and has debuted compositions at New York venues such as National Sawdust.

Daniel Zinn, conductor and artistic director of So&So, will be conducting a 25 piece chamber orchestra in the two pieces presented:


Bach // Orchestral Suite N.3
Jordan Hall // “Blueprint”


While Blueprint is a natural exercise in improvisation and flexibility, Zinn’s decision to reinvent orchestration, and even instrumentation, is definitely pushing the limits of what is “Bach”.
