Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie spend time with artists who tread different paths through classical music while trying to make the work more accessible than it traditionally has been. First we welcome to the show David McCormick, Artistic Director of the Early Music Access Project and the Executive Director of The Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival. McCormick talks about both groups (and about Alkemie, his New York City based medieval music group), about different baroque instruments, about making the old new, but mostly about the Access Project’s upcoming production, Murder in Messina. Next, Miriam Gordon-Stewart and Brenda Patterson from Victory Hall Opera return to the show. They talk about their upcoming show Sally on West Main, a multi-media opera at the Music Resource Center inspired by a little known period in Sally Hemings’ life when she left Monticello and lived on West Main Street. It’s a fascinating piece that leads us into discussions of artistic inspiration and cultural representation in the arts. Two artists working to make their art accessible and we’re working to make them accessible to you here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, Leslie gets to lean on both her theater and music sides with two groups of guests. First, A.D. Carson and John Conover talk about Live Arts Theatre’s upcoming production of The Royale, for which they are, respectively, the sound designer and dramaturg. John talks about the subject of The Royale — turn of the century heavyweight prizefighter Jack Johnson and his championship fight with Jim Jeffries — and A.D. talks about the original music that he has designed for the production. Next, Emily Julia Kresky returns to the show with bandmates Niko Cvetanovich and Sean Bracken. Together, they are the core of Dropping Julia. Leslie talks to them about their insane work ethic and schedule, about their upcoming CD, Wake Up, and about what it’s like being a new band. We try to take you behind the scenes of people who are making the scene here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, Leslie leaves us behind leaving David to get behind the mic with two guests. First, he talks to rapper King Gemini. A Charlottesville native, he’s just back in town from living in California and he’s taking the first steps towards getting a music career on track. David talks to KG about beginnings and we listen to his first single. Next Ty Cooper returns to the show. After years of documentary filmmaking, he’s attempting his first narrative film project. David and Ty talk about his conception for the work, the need to be cruel in writing, and about some of the ins and outs of filming your work. Every piece of art has a moment when it starts, and we’re here to talk about those moments just as we talk about finished pieces on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
