IBOC Summer Recital

Private Home of Theresa Havell and James Carter

NEW YORK, NY, June 3rd, 2016 – The International Brazilian Opera Company (IBOC) is hosting a private recital for potential donors in support of their upcoming concerts of The Seventh Seal, a new opera by João MacDowell, based on the script by Ingmar Bergman.

The program will include the world premiere of the Tamanduá Suite for piano and violin, a new work by João MacDowell, as well as works by Brahms, Kreisler, Piazzolla and Ginastera. The recital will feature pianist YinJia Lin and violinist Ji in Yang.

YinJia Lin has drawn international attention since her concerto debut at the age of fifteen with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta. Ms. Lin has performed in venues such as the Alice Tully Hall, WMP Concert Hall, Ana Tzarev Gallery, and the Frederick Loewe Theater, as well the Hong Kong City Hall and the Golden Horse Concert Hall in Canton, China.

Ji in Yang is a graduate of Julliard where she studied with Hyo Kang and Dorothy DeLay. She has performed with orchestras throughout the world and is currently pursuing her Doctorate of Musical Arts at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

The event will be hosted by Theresa Havell and James Carter at their private residence in Manhattan’s West Village. Artwork by painters João Campos and Jeankarlos Cruz will be exhibited during the event and available for purchase.
Funds raised will contribute to the cost of IBOC’s fall concert preview of scenes from The Seventh Seal, an opera based on Ingmar Bergman’s film of the same name.
“Bergman’s The Seventh Seal has been praised as one of the greatest works of art of the 20th century. The possibilities of converting it into a contemporary opera are fascinating,” says João MacDowell.
The performances of the music of this new opera will take place on November 10th and 12th, at Scandinavia House, 58 Park Avenue, continuing IBOC’s relationship with the cultural institution.
