R.I.P. Carl Goldfarb, 1949-2017

Kicking off the 2017-18 Sound It Out season at Greenwich House Music School tonight, pianist Cooper-Moore – an “American original,” says WBGO – makes his series debut with returning up-and-comer Mara Rosenbloom for a cross-generational duo. Pairing on the double Steinways at Greenwich House, they will play duets to open this double bill, at 7:30. Then, at 8:30, they will feature in a new quartet alongside cellist Nioka Workman and drummer Michael Wimberly. There will be a free wine meet-and-greet in the Greenwich House garden after the show… But on a sad note, Sound It Out volunteer Carl Goldfarb passed away in his sleep last week. Born in 1949, an NYU grad and a retired accountant, he was a gentle soul and a great fan of the music, always listening deeply at every show – and he always attended many, all over town. He was a dedicated supporter of Sound It Out – which was much appreciated. He will be missed; as Cooper-Moore said, “Carl Goldfarb was one of us.” Sound It Out dedicates this season kick-off to Carl, and we will raise a glass in a toast to him tonight.
