East Providence, RI – The Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra & Music School hosts Music Without Borders: Judith Lynn Stillman and Friends from the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra. Pianist Stillman performs with orchestra members Katherine Winterstein, violin, Abigail Cross, viola, and Steven Laven, cello, in a variety of works celebrating cultures across the globe…and beyond! Former Director of NASA‘s Johnson Space Center, Carolyn Huntoon (and first ever woman to have held such a position), and WaterFire‘s Barnaby Evans narrate Stillman‘s SMALL STEP, GIANT LEAP: A Lunar Fantasy, commissioned in 2019 in honor of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11‘s moon landing. Stillman shares, “Showcasing composers from Spain to China, the evening encompasses ethnic, indigenous and folk idioms within classical frameworks, and music that intermingles cultural traditions.”The event is at 8p on Saturday (Nov. 2) at the Carter Center for Music Education & Performance, 667 Waterman Ave., East Providence.“The audience will experience, firsthand, that music is an extraordinary, unifying force. Our program highlights diverse cultures and represents an eclectic amalgamation of music from around the world, seemingly disparate. Yet, inspired melodies, passionate harmonies, driving rhythms, and overarching organic structures connect us all under the boundless umbrella of musical creation,” Stillman remarks.
