C4's European Premiere
C4 is thrilled to have recently received its European premiere through the digital launch of Pitter patter, pitter patter, and then —
composed by Daniel Andor-Ardó and conducted by Timothy Brown, both long-time composer, conductor, and performer members of C4.
C4’s 2016-17 Artist in Residence, Zsuzsanna Ardó introduced C4’s innovative work to Europeans through the Creatives without Borders' exhibition and installation she curated for the European Parliament (Brussels) about how collective memory endures through attitudes towards the ‘Other’. A critical theme of apparently enduring relevance and urgency, getting more so rather than less, by the day.
During the launch, and throughout the run of the exhibition, visitors engaging with the show had a chance to hear Pitter Patter, hot off our new CD, Cornerstones (official release coming in November).
Prior to this European digital premiere, Pitter Patter was given its world premiere by C4 in February 2013 and reprised at the ensemble's March 2016 appearance at the ACDA National Conference in Boston, followed by concert performances in New York as part of our regular season of concerts.
Tickets are $20 advance purchase, or $25 at the door. The Concert Pass gives one admission to both performances for only $25.$5 tickets for ages 11 to 17, free admission for children 10 and under. Ten $4 "Rush" tickets are available at the door.
Directions to Our Lady Of Mercy
By Subway (15 minute walk from the station):
Take E/F/M/R to Forest Hills-71st Av. It is an express stop, and the E and F run express in Queens, so they should be a faster trip from Manhattan. Exit onto the SOUTH side of Queens Blvd, and walk down Continental Ave for 10 blocks; if you are going in the right direction, you will cross Austin St after one block, then pass under the LIRR train tracks. The cross streets are alphabetical; take a right on Kessell St. The church is on the right at the end of the block.
For dinner beforehand, there are plenty of restaurants on Austin St.
By LIRR (12 minute walk from the station):
Take the train to the Forest Hills stop. Exit onto Continental Ave, and head south (into the residential section, away from the shops) for 8 blocks. The cross streets are alphabetical; take a right on Kessell St. The church is on the right at the end of the block.
