August 26, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Preservation New Jersey welcomes guitarist Liz Hogg in a program showcasing both her rock and classical guitar talents.
Performing as a soloist, Liz Hogg (lizhogg.com) has toured ten countries, playing numerous festivals and concert halls. Most recently, Ms. Hogg became the first American to win a fellowship to perform and study at the Lanciano International Guitar Festival in Italy. Other recent awards include the Mannes School of Music’s Dean Award, the Maurice Kagan Memorial Scholarship Award for Excellence in an Orchestral Instrument (first guitarist recipient) and a Fulbright-García Robles Scholarship semi-finalist.
In her hometown, Ms. Hogg has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brookfield Place, Morgan Library, and the Italian Academy, and internationally at venues including Portugal’s Casa da Música and Mexico’s Tlaqná Concert Hall. She has also performed live at radio stations including WFMU, WNYC and WHFR and has been a featured artist at festivals Internacional Camerata 21, CMJ and New Sounds Live.
As a composer and performer/singer of her own music and in various groups, Liz has recorded nine full-length albums and eight eps, self-released and released by Mouca, Acuarela and Don Giovanni Records. Her debut S/T solo album is due for a spring 2018 release via Mouca Records. Her latest song, “Ridge” is available for streaming. Her band’s most recent album, Wild Movement, garnered reviews from Big Takeover and NME, as well as a video premiere on MTV for its single “Drifters”.
After studying with William Anderson and graduating from Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College with a Bachelor of Music in guitar performance with honors, Ms. Hogg went on to receive a Master of Music in guitar performance at Mannes School of Music as a student of Michael Newman.
Ms. Hogg has recorded and performed on a variety of stringed instruments beyond guitar including mandolin, banjo, sitar, Hawaiian guitar, 5-string bass, theorbo and tiple, including theorbo and guitar in Mannes’ production of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, and banjo, classical, steel string and Hawaiian guitar at Kupferberg Center for the Arts’ production of The Threepenny Opera.
She has worked with conductors including Maurice Peress and Alan Pierson, performed in master classes for Scott Tennant, Álvaro Pierri, Richard Savino, and Arthur Kampela and has premiered works by David Lang, Robert Martin, Jakub Polaczyk, Linda Buckley, Amelia Kaplan and Ivan Vukosavljević.
For her August 26 concert at the 1867 Sanctuary:
“Hogg eschews cliched guitar riffs in favor of a more distinctive and original approach that includes quickly-strummed chords, chiming arpeggios, and rapid-fire picking. In addition to evoking the spirit of Lou Reed and Tom Verlaine, Hogg’s playing also shows the influence of surf guitar.” – Geoff Cabin, Rock Beat International
Liz Hogg will perform selections from her debut S/T solo LP released on Mouca Records summer 2018. The album is available for LP/Cassette preorder and streaming at https://lizhogg.bandcamp.com
