Bootsy Collins & Worldwide Funk Drive
Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts

Bootsy Collins & Worldwide Funk Drive

August 20, 2017

Bootsy Collins is the man who put bass in your face - the original funk 'n' roll wild child, the Godzilla-toned high minister of the all-powerful "one," a sly dog who - with his trademark psychedelic stovepipe, knee-high platform boots, and star-studded bass guitars - makes the Cat in the Hat look tame. Inspired by Jimi Hendrix and tutored by no less an authority on the big beat than James Brown, Collins has stomped his way through the last 40 years of music history and lived the high life. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with the other members of Parliament-Funkadelic. Having collaborated with scores of artists, including Ice Cube, Steve Jordan, Bernie Worrell, Bela Fleck, George Duke, and Buckethead, and contributed to numerous classic recordings like Deee-Lite's "Groove is in the Heart," Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice" (for which he won a Grammy Award), and cuts by Snoop Dogg, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eddie Kramer, Buddy Miles, and more, what has Collins learned over the course of his career? "What all of this - my music, my life - is about, is liberty," Collins explains. "It's about pursuing the sounds and ideas and things that you believe in and that you feel. The best music urges you to open your mind and your heart and take a bigger look at the world and what you can bring to it."

Admired through her career for her talent as an artist and song connoisseur, Harris shook up country radio in the 1970s, and established herself as the premiere songwriter of a generation selling more than 15 million records and garnering 13 Grammy Awards (this year she and Rodney Crowell won the Grammy for "Best Americana album"), three CMA Awards, and two Americana Awards

Music for a New World II

April 8, 2017

Maestro Green knows how to finish with a flourish in this season final!  This super-sized season finale is an all-out festival of ethereal and luscious works for chorus and orchestra.  He began the 2016-2017 season with W.A. Mozart’s Requiem, one of the most well known and celebrated works ever written and one every composer that came after it was influenced by.  Maestro Green ties up the season with several pieces by 20th- and 21st-Century composers that connect back to that music.  He promises that, once heard live, the pieces performed on this concert will become instant favorites.  Get ready to hear the Annapolis Chorale and Annapolis Chamber Orchestra perform  Dan Forrest’s “Requiem For The Living,” Ola Gjeilo’s “Luminous Night of the Soul,” Eric Whitacre’s “The Seal Lullaby” and Arvo Pärt’s “Da pacem Domine.”  Find out the hidden connections with Mr. Green and the Chorale!
