RAHWAY- Peabody Award Winning and Latin Grammy-nominated radio and record producer Jim Luce announces a sneak preview of CONSERVATORY in the Rahway Arts District.
CONSERVATORY combines educational programs, a piano showroom, state of the art hi-fi audio equipment, brand new, vintage jazz and classical vinyl recordings and recording studios all in one place.
“Our new multi-faceted space has been created for the pursuit of fine living through musical education and the leisure of experiencing music in the home;” says Luce.
Friday night, Oct. 1 at 8 p.m., pianist Elio Villafranca, bassist Charles Flores and pianist Clarice Assad, will perform live on fine pianos from the Klavierhaus Collection, including concert and art case instruments from Steinway, Bechstein, Ritmuller, Sauter and Pearl River.
At the CONSERVATORY, Jonathan Weiss of Oswalds Mill Audio will demonstrate his revolutionary AC1 and mini loudspeakers, and Robin Wyatt of Robyatt Audio will demonstrate-for the first time- the brand new GEM turntable from aerospace company TT Weights of Canada.
According to Luce, the activity of music listening is a lost art that needs to be reintroduced to a new generation. “I’ve been producing concerts, festivals and broadcasts most of my life, and I’ve been listening to LPs since 1957. The LP has brought me untold amounts of pleasure and joy;’ said Luce.
“Our society today demands that we eat, work and experience life on the run. Music listening has become largely relegated to an activity that we fit into our schedules, like eating on the run, instead of taking valuable time to sit and experience music for its own merit. For the sake of culture, and the next generation of young musicians, there needs to exist a place that exposes music education to children, as an inexpensive family activity and for the communal act of gathering friends together to listen to music in a relaxed atmosphere of the home. That’s what we stand for.”
