PRLog - Oct. 30, 2012 - POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- ‘Pieces From the Spectrum’ — a Concert Inspired by the Artwork of Autistic Youth and Adults

Staatsburg, N.Y. (October 2012) – On Saturday, Nov. 3, graduate musicians from Bard College will present a recital inspired by the visual artwork of the children and adults of Anderson Center for Autism. Guided and inspired directly by the art, the musicians have chosen a wide-ranging program that encompasses music from many different styles and time periods.

Attempting to create something that would have a long-lasting effect, both within the community and the broader arts world, it was decided to create a philanthropic event. During a visit to Anderson Center for Autism, the musicians were able to experience how visual artists at the center expressed themselves through drawing and painting. For many living with autism, communicating with the outside world can be a challenge. Through their art they are able to share what life looks like through their eyes.

The performers sat individually with the visual artists whose work had personally captivated them. The concert plans to feature more than a dozen drawings and paintings, all exhibited in the context of the musical repertoire that they inspired. The concert program includes solo, duet and quartet performances ranging from beloved melodies including 'Embraceable You' by George Gershwin and 'Baby Mine' from Walt Disney’s “Dumbo” to contemporary works by Jakes Heggie, Irving Fine, Meredith Monk, Norman Dello Joio and many more.

“Pieces From the Spectrum” will take place Saturday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. at Morton Memorial Library, 82 Kelly St. in Rhinecliff. The concert is free but donations are welcome and appreciated. Due to limited seating, we please ask that you RSVP to guarantee a seat. For questions and further information, please contact PiecesFromTheSpectrum@gmail.com.
