"Bachpacking" with Simone Dinnerstein
Simone Dinnerstein will present a series of free classroom concerts at elementary and middle schools in and around Morningside Heights and Harlem, where Miller Theatre is located, in the days surrounding the recital. This series of outreach performances emerges from a commitment to education and community that is shared by Dinnerstein and Miller Theatre.
Dinnerstein has a long history of bringing music into schools, prisons, nursing and retirement homes, and hospitals. In short, anywhere where she thinks the music can speak. She plays regularly in the New York public schools that are part of her Neighborhood Classics concert series. Miller Theatre, for its part, has produced a number of free community events in recent years, including the participatory art-making festival and parade Morningside Lights; an outdoor performance of John Luther Adams'Inuksuit in Morningside Park; and the ongoing, free monthly Pop-Up Concerts series onstage.
