Whether working with electronic sounds, chamber ensembles, orchestra, improvisation, or multimedia, his music has been characterized by critics as “sophisticated,” “hummable and engaging,” and as having “good senses of showmanship and humor.”</p><p>From 1981-2013 Rolnick was a Professor of Music at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, where he was founding director of the <a href="http://www.arts.rpi.edu/">iEAR Studios</a>.</p><p>Since 2005 Neil Rolnick has written three large-scale works for piano and computer.

Her music has been hailed for both its contemporary edge and its traditional flavor, and her passionate live performances keep fans coming back from all around the world.</p><p> Fri, 17 Jan 2014 15:10:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 82030 at http://wamc.org Kathy Mattea At Troy Savings Bank Music Hall On 2/1 Sinbad At Troy Savings Bank Music Hall On 1/16 http://wamc.org/post/sinbad-troy-savings-bank-music-hall-116 <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 stand-ups of all time, actor and comedian </span>Sinbad<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> has kept audiences laughing in the aisles for the past three decades.
