In last Monday’s (11/6) Manchester Ink Link (New Hampshire), Keith Spiro reports, “In advance of [Symphony New Hampshire’s] ‘three cities, three shows’ presentation of [Wynton Marsalis’s] ‘A Fiddler’s Tale’ (Nov. 10-12 in Derry, Manchester and Concord), I had a conversation with show narrator Danny Rivera to highlight the collaborative efforts of the Ink Link and Symphony New Hampshire in creating new ways to connect artists and audiences… Rivera is CEO of Artists Initiative for Revolution, [which] he describes as a service to grassroots movements…. This organization helps bring to light social issues and find ways to address those issues through the arts….  Graduating from the Longy School of Music, he had just finished his senior recital [when] he received an email from Deanna Hoying, the executive director of Symphony NH. She offered him the opportunity to retell ‘The Fiddler’s Tale’ for a new generation…. So very appropriate for a modern-day connector who is bridging cultures and generations as he navigates his own career in music…. Jazz trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis’s acclaimed ‘A Fiddler’s Tale’ comes to New England as a Symphony NH premiere. It’s a modernized version of Stravinsky’s ‘The Soldier’s Tale,’ an iconic tale of fame, fortune, and the devil.”
