Spring Equinox Celebration
March 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm
Join Paul Winter and Henrique Eisenmann TO CELEBRATE the Spring Equinox
On Saturday March 20th at 12 noon EDT, join Paul Winter and Brazilian pianist Henrique Eisenmann for a 60-90 minute live stream concert celebrating the Spring Equinox and marking the transition from winter to spring. The spring equinox marks an equilibrium between daylight and darkness, and from March 20th until the autumnal equinox, the amount of daylight surpasses the dark (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least). We hope this day, much like the winter solstice, offers renewal and energy as the sun continues its return to us, and the earth slowly rouses from her winter slumber. The innate optimism of springtime abounds. It is this spirit that we want to put forth with our music.
Pianist Henrique Eisenmann brings to us the joyous spirit of the music of Brazil, which has been Paul’s second musical home for over half a century. Having grown up imbued with the entire gamut of Brazilian music, Henrique came to the U.S. several years ago to study at the New England Conservatory. He is now on the faculty there, is also a professor at City University of New York, and was recently honored to be invited to teach improvisation to the piano students at the Juilliard School of Music.
