Cages - "A World In Song"

Asbury Hall at Babeville

Through performance, Cages intend to illuminate what is shared between all.

The core duo of Nola Ranallo and David Bailey will present two new pieces of music with support from over twenty local Buffalo musicians, chefs, poets, and artists. Additionally, national and international artists Jon Mueller, Jensen Ward, Andrew McKenzie, Gabrielle Duggan, Brad Dumville and TJ Borden will also be involved in the evening's performance, all of whom were integral to the project's genesis.

Nola Ranallo is a survivor. This concert will be a sign post in her recovery and a chance for her to share her experience with others by turning darkness into light. Proceeds from the cost of admission will be donated to the Crisis Services organization who will be present during the event.

"A World In Song is the music that granted me a new life that I heard during my clinical death experience. I did not re-learn anything. I learned for the first time. The new life, I must be doing greater work, deeper healing, deeper work. I can not lead a normal life now. I must share love with others. I must love all others. I must accept all failure to elevate other humans. We all need each other. We are all suffering. We are all sick. We must help one another. This is why I sing A World in Song." - Nola Ranallo

The performance will begin precisely at 8:00 pm.

Hallwalls Music Program is made possible through public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, and generous grants from the Cullen Foundation and Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

The polymathic Douglas R. Ewart has been honored for his work as a composer, multi-instrumentalist, improviser, conceptual artist, sculptor and instrument designer and builder. Also an educator, Ewart bridges his kaleidoscopic activities with a vision that opposes today's divided world, culture-fusing works that aim to restore the wholeness of communities and of the individuals within them, and to emphasize the reality that our world is an interdependent entity. This is highlighted in his collaborative installation project Rio Negro II - a work that combines natural materials & modern technology to create a deeply engaging atmosphere that calls attention to a time when human beings had a more balanced relationship with their living environment.
