Performing Arts at CAM Presents Jessica Schmitz, Summer Solstice 3
Drawn to the performance of both contemporary and traditional repertoire, New York based flutist Jessica Schmitz has performed internationally across a wide spectrum of musical arts. As a featured soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player she has given the world premieres of many pieces in the US, and has also worked with such composers as Meredith Monk, Steve Reich, David Lang, Robert Dick, Steve Mackey, Julia Wolfe, Michael Gordon, and Harold Meltzer.
Performing Arts at CAM is a highly acclaimed concert and dance performance series featuring internationally renowned, as well as emerging, performing artists. Curated by Nina Colosi, Performing Arts at CAM presents a diverse range of genres and cultural traditions -- classical and contemporary music concerts, sound art installations, dance and physical theater works -- many of which emphasize the correlation between performing and visual arts. Staging all performances directly in the exhibition galleries, Performing Arts at CAM builds on the legacy of the abstract expressionist painter Jean Miotte, whose foundation is housed within Chelsea Art Museum. Through his painting Miotte strove to build a bridge between cultures and break through national boundaries to form a truly international artistic language.
