RAVENSCROFT CONCERT SERIES – Ben Wendel | High Heart
“Ben Wendel has given us a standout album that is at once challenging, inspiring, and an advance—but most importantly, one that lives up to its title.” – All About Jazz
Join us on October 14th at 7:30pm for Ben Wendel – HIGH HEART.
Grammy-nominated saxophonist and composer, Ben Wendel, joins us in Ravenscroft Hall with his highly anticipated 5th album, ‘High Heart.’ This album is not just music; it’s a powerful personal statement and reflection of Ben’s journey in our complex, oversaturated, and socially imbalanced society.
‘High Heart’ invites you to dive into a discussion that resonates with our modern times – how artists create authentic and meaningful art in an increasingly impersonal world. Ben’s introspective exploration of the digital age challenges the very essence of artistry, relevance, and identity in today’s culture.
Get ready for an unparalleled show, where music and visuals intertwine. Xuan, a classically trained pianist and visionary ‘visual music’ artist, pushes boundaries with her innovative projects. From experimental animation to interactive installations, her work explores identity and power, earning her acclaim worldwide. Join her on her next venture in Ravenscroft Hall and witness the future of immersive artistry.
Featured artists include:
Ben Wendel – Saxophone
Michael Mayo – Vocals
Xuan – Visual Arts
Taylor Eigsti – Piano
Or Bareket – Bass
Jonathan Pinson – Drums
