Music in the Digital Age at BronxArtSpace
The Bronx Arts Ensemble’s 51st season, 𝘈 𝘍𝘰𝘤𝘶𝘴 𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘏𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘊𝘰𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯, examines all the rituals and experiences that make us human. Tik Tok and other social media platforms have given the everyday person the opportunity to “romanticize” their life by making a quick video and adding music– and curiously, a lot of classical music has made the cut. The BAE string quartet will perform various “Tik Tok” popular songs, works that were promoted by the composer on social media, and unjustly forgotten works that have found their way back into the canon through social media. Works by Max Richter, Nia Imani Franklin, Ariana Grande, Joe Hisaishi, Angélica Negrón, and William Grant Still.
