April 22, 2013 | Chamber Blues: a taste of Chicago

Walking the line between Beethoven and B.B. King and armed with the creative genius and instrumental prowess that have defined his career for nearly four decades, Corky has pioneered an original, genre-busting Chamber blues – a fresh, innovative sound capturing the sparkling qualities of classical music merged with the emotional melodic style of blues, all within an intimate chamber setting.

Act 1: Chef Kelly Sheehan*, native Chicagoan, worked his magic to merge Chicago’s gastronomic leadership with deep-rooted Midwest comfort food paired with Chicago Craft beer tasting by Goose Island.

Act 2: Corky Siegel‘s Chamber Blues rocked the M Building with a “melange” of Blues and Classical music.

Act 3: A representation of Chicago in a cupcake! by Sweet & Tipsy**

WATCH: Nothing Like it in the World!!!

Juan Diego Mateos Reina, Juan Diego | March 2012

Juan Diego will be performing with the MISO and musimelange in March 2012.

Learning toque jerezano from native maestros such as El Carbonero and Jose Luis Balao, Juan Diego dove head first into studying flamenco guitar at the ripe old age of ten. He completed his training with Manolo Sanlucar and, in music theory, with Luis Balaguer. Enrolled in the Albarizuela

Children’s Ballet, he went on his first international tour. He thus began a solid career in dance accompaniment which he would develop after moving to Madrid around 1989. Juan Diego then joined the Rafael Aguilar company, performing “Carmen”.

Following this he worked with Luisillo in “Luna de sangre”, whose music he wrote; and then joined the Joaquin Cortes Company, coinciding with the premiere of “Cibayi”. He has also composed dance scores for Antonio el Pipa-“Herencia gitana”-and for Antonio Vargas-“La casa de Bernarda Alba”. Additionally, he has accompanied bailaores such as Joaquin Grilo, Juana Amaya, Merche Esmeralda and Antonio Canales, among others.

As a studio guitarist, Juan Diego has recorded with Remedios Amaya, Jorge Pardo, Sorderita, Pepe de Lucia; accompanying many of them live. Heterodox artists such as Tomasito and Maria Jimenez call on his toque from time to time. Juan Diego launched his first solo album, “Luminaria”, in Autumn 2003, with the collaboration of musicians like Jorge Pardo, Carles Benavent, Remedios Amaya and Diego Carrasco. The recording received the flamenco critics’ award in 2004. The international high-quality audio company Bose chose the Jerez-born guitarist and his music as the stars of the demo DVD to be used to promote their new home cinema equipment beginning in Summer 2005.

musimelange was in Antibes!

Using local caterers musimelange can travel to you anywhere in the world!

Antibes a French city of roses and art on the french riviera!

♦ On the terrasse of a beautiful villa, one could hear the cicadas singing.  A refreshing tasting of Absinthe served with the typical small back olives, pissaladières & ratatouille tartines.

♦ We travelled back in time to the beginning of the Twentieth Century with a mélange of show pieces for violin and piano

♦ A night in Antibes can not finish without Jazz (piano and saxophone), Rose flavored Ice Cream & Wine Rosé!
