SHATTERED GLASS - SAT APR 9

In 2012 a group of friends in New York City came together to form a conductorless string ensemble that was truly collaborative and self-operated. Virtuosic and versatile, Shattered Glass has performed repertoire ranging from J.S. Bach and W.A. Mozart to Krzysztof Penderecki and crossover projects with Grammy®-nominated hip-hop artists. From the concert hall to the salon, Shattered Glass adapts in size to fit the venue and repertoire, transforming from an intimate duo to a full chamber orchestra – at times within a single performance.
In the spirit of collaboration, Shattered Glass members regularly rotate the role of principal player and participate in a democratic system for creating and selecting programs. The result is a fresh and exciting approach to all aspects of performance which has led to a wide array of opportunities: A self-governed Midwest tour, performances at high profile events such as at TEDxEAST, a Carnegie Hall premiere at Zankel Hall in 2013, and a performance in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium in 2014 featuring violin soloist Alexander Markov. Equally active in educational outreach, Shattered Glass has worked with hundreds of young artists at schools and programs in New York, New Jersey, Iowa, Illinois, and Michigan.
Keeping collaboration at the center of it all gives Shattered Glass its unique personality, and as put by The New York Concert Review: “With a core of such talented and enthusiastic young players, the future should be bright”.

DANIKA PORTZ - FRI JUNE 10

Nashville recording artist and songwriter, Danika Portz, is creating a buzz in Music City. Originally from Remsen, Iowa, Danika has been performing since the age of 6. Her mother recognized her talent at an early age and put together her first "tour" to all the local nursing homes at the age of 8 and started competing in competitions at the age of 9. From collegiate choirs to professional theatre companies, corporate events to state and county fairs, Danika is a seasoned veteran to the stage.
Since moving to Nashville, Danika has caught the attention of several record labels and publishers around town. .Her distinctive sound and style is what sets her apart from the typical country act as her music has been described as a mixture of Mumford and Sons, Kacey Musgraves, and Katy Perry -with a voice on par with Norah Jones. Lyrically grounded in country music, yet unafraid to think outside the box melodically, Danika phrases things in such a way that grabs the listener and makes them want more.
