FREE: The Canales Project

About the Show

 Founded by mezzo-soprano Carla Dirlikov Canales, The Canales Project’s Between Two Worlds gives voice to issues of identity and culture through a powerful musical message. Canales hosts this event that features music and discussion in three fascinating segments with young activist-artists:

Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner, a pianist and composer committed to social action through music;

Mariela Shaker, a Syrian violinist born in Aleppo who uses music to raise awareness for the plight of her countrymen

Andia Winslow, a Yale alumna and athlete who encourages young people and adults to maintain healthy and active lifestyles.

Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concerts is a program of the Weill Music Institute.
Lead support for Neighborhood Concerts is provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation.

Miranda Cuckson, Violin

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings.

Miranda Cuckson returns to Miller Theatre’s stage with a solo concert. A favorite of audiences for her great range of repertoire and styles, she’s become one of the most sought after performers of contemporary music. Cuckson is passionate about the role of the performer/interpreter in the creative process, which she has proved at concert halls and festivals, galleries and informal spaces alike. Her Pop-Up Concert offers several new violin works by important contemporary voices, including a premiere by Steve Lehman.

All concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
