Bronx Arts Ensemble is so proud to have partnered with the New York Philharmonic on May 22, 2021.
This weekend marked “the first-ever live performance of “Sembrar” (Angélica Negrón) as part of NY Phil Bandwagon 2 at Father Gigante Plaza in the Bronx, with BAE and Negrón joined by NY Phil musicians.” (NY Phil Facebook)
BAE was scheduled to premiere “Sembrar” as part of their live concert series in 2020. Unfortunately, COVID forced this special performance to be presented online, rather than as a live event.
Thanks to the partnership with our friends at the NY Philharmonic, we were able to bring this incredible event to the public.
“Sembrar” composed by Angélica Negrón is a collection of songs for plants, mechanical percussion & voice. These works explore reconnecting with your immediate surroundings and meaningful distant landscapes as a fertile path towards healing and overcoming trauma.
Originally a solo piece, this version is a special arrangement and featured a string quartet.
