Fall 2017 Concert Schedule


The Dylan Jack Quartet 

Although there are four musicians in the ensemble, The Dylan Jack Quartet has been described as one instrument with the musicality and connection between each member being eerily exciting to experience. Combining both the composed and the spontaneous, this ensemble explores the structure of both disciplines, creating a unique blend of modern music inspired by 20th, and 21st century composers of both “classical” and “jazz.”  For this concert the quartet will present their debut record DIAGRAMS in its entirety. Percussionist Dylan Jack is a 2008 graduate of MCC where he majored in music.  He will be joined by Todd Brunel, clarinet and saxophone; Eric Hofbauer, guitar and Anthony Leva, bass. 

8 p.m. • Friday, November 3 • MCC Concert Hall • Bedford Campus

Anastasia Seifetdinova, Piano

The New York Concert Review wrote of the Ukrainian born pianist Anastasia Seifetdinova: "Hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again.” She will present a piano recital including the Sonata mélancolique by Ignaz Moscheles, Variations sérieuses by Felix Mendelssohn, Papillons by Robert Schumann and the fiery Waldstein Sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven.

3 p.m. • Sunday, November 12 • MCC Concert Hall • Bedford Campus


And the Barriers Had Vanished: Exploring LGBT Issues through Music 

MCC faculty member Anna Ward, soprano, will be joined by Rodolfo Girón, countertenor, Drew Ricciardi, viola, and Elaine Rombola, piano, for a program which reflects LGBT issues through music from the 1600’s until today. Vocal duets by Claudio Monteverdi; arias by George Frideric Handel; songs by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky; a song cycle by Juliana Hall set to poetry by Elizabeth Bishop and Edna St. Vincent Millay; and a song cycle for soprano and viola by Dominick DiOrio entitled And the Barriers Had Vanished will be featured. This event was such a success last spring in Lowell that it is being presented again in Bedford during class hours.

12:30 p.m. • Tuesday, November 28 • MCC Concert Hall  • Bedford Campus
