This artist series is top shelf. I am a big fan of diverse music. A lot of my ideas come from hearing artist outside of my box. Thanks Houston.
Best Nonprofit Art Series - 2009
Impulse! Artist Series
Pianist Jade Simmons has just one mission in life — to give classical music a new reputation. She's out to replace the image of a stuffy, staid collection of dead guys in white wigs with fresh, young, cutting-edge artists (herself included). While she'll say she's had plenty of help in creating the Impulse! Artist Series, a weeklong event featuring concerts and workshops, the truth is, it's her baby. Simmons brings in pianists from around the world, presents each in a solo concert and organizes one group performance, with music ranging from works written 500 years ago to five days ago.
