Emerging Artist: Kandace Springs

Live at Benaroya Hall >

Kandace grew up a soul singer in a country-western town. Her dad Scat Springs sang backup for everyone from, Chaka Khan, Donna Summer and Aretha Franklin to Brian McKnight and Michael McDonald.  Her father instilled in Kandace a love of the greats: Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Eva Cassidy, and Luther Vandross. He helped her record a demo at 15 and now, well before the age of 30, her two albums Soul Eyes and Indigo have earned her raves. Within a very short window, she has logged dozens of festival and TV performances including the Late Show with David LettermanJimmy Kimmel Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. With a lithe, smoky voice and an intensely expressive mastery over the piano she offers a mix of everything: blues followed by a classical piece, a jazz standard after a Beatles cover. Her artistry swirls classical composition with quiet-storm cool, jazz poise and soulful depth.

Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1

Masterworks Series >

Resilience. Determination. Exultation. Schumann’s Second Symphony reminds us how humans, flaws and all, can overcome challenges with guts and grace. The pain and humiliation of a hand injury that ended his piano career led Schumann onto a symphonic path blazed by Beethoven, as heard in the fiery “Zwickau” Symphony. The willful streak that carried Beethoven through so much personal hardship was already well developed in the First Piano Concerto, his proud and unbending bid to fill the mighty large shoes of Mozart.

[untitled] 1

untitled >

Enter the brittle, fragile world of Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen in this hour-long tour de force. Inspired by the music of Bach and Steve Reich, Abrahamsen’s Schnee (“Snow”) reduces music to its most essential forms, weaving ghostly canons into landscapes filled with veils of shifting snow and patterns of crystalline frost.

Garry Trudeau, social observer and creator of the Pulitzer Prize-winning comic strip Doonesbury, has been drawing electoral commentary for nearly a half-century. In those years, he has made no secret of his opinion of Donald Trump, taking him to task in the strip since the 1980s. The comic strip proved exceptionally prescient, and in one installment, Trudeau even predicted Trump’s presidential run.
