Shape of Day

A Multimedia Jazz Concert at Yale

Presented by the Ike Sturm Ensemble

Marquand Chapel, 409 Prospect Street, New Haven

The Yale Institute of Sacred Music will present the Ike Sturm Ensemble in a multimedia jazz concert on Friday, November 11 at 8:30 pm in Marquand Chapel at 409 Prospect Street in New Haven. Integrating jazz and world rhythms in richly textured original music, the New York-based Ike Sturm Ensemble fuses diverse influences into a unified, contemporary style. The unique voices of each of its ten improvising members speak to audiences within a saturated environment of original artwork painted by artist and clarinetist Madeline Sturm to complement the sound and form of the music.

Ike Sturm is a bassist, composer, and educator in New York focusing on the presentation of original music. In addition to leading the 10-piece ensemble in collaborative music and visual art concerts, he is also active as an educator and clinician. Mr. Sturm was recently named the Assistant Director of Music for the Jazz Ministry at Saint Peter’s Church in Manhattan, internationally regarded as the “Jazz Church,” where he performs and composes original music for weekly jazz services.

Shape of Day is a 7-part suite that traces the different perspectives of light encountered throughout a single day. The concert is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.
