Would You Support a Property Tax to Fund the Detroit Institute of Arts?
Macomb Patch - almost 5 years
Despite an initial 4-4 deadlock, the Macomb County Economic Development Committee voted 5-3 Friday to approve the first step in a process that would put a question on the August ballot asking voters to pass or reject a 10-year, .2 mill property tax to support the Detroit Institute of Arts. The committee initially rejected the proposal, but agreed to reconsider the issue Friday following public comment by area residents. Macomb Township resident Susan Hiltz was one of several dozen commenters to speak in favor of putting the issue to a countywide vote. "This is a gem for this region," Hiltz is quoted as saying in the Detroit News. "I think it is very short-sighted to not even vote on this. Stop making us look like a bunch of yahoos in Macomb County." If approved by voters in August, the annual millage would cost $10 for every $100,000 of a home’s market value. Macomb County residents would also receive free admission to the museum if the ballot question is approved.  ...

    FORTIES
  • 2010
    Flynn has since worked with Martin Hayes on a number of other projects. In 2010, Hayes premiered Aontacht, a concerto for Irish fiddle and orchestra with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra in Ireland's National Concert Hall.
    More Details Hide Details The concert also featured a new arrangement of Music for the Departed with a string orchestra added to the fiddle, violin and guitar trio of the original. Flynn continues to work with traditional Irish musicians in the creation of new concert works. Recent such works include The Forest of Ornaments for flautist Harry Bradley, Five Études for Uilleann Pipes for uilleann piper Mick O'Brien and The Valley of the Lunatics for fiddle player Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. These works and others were programmed to be premiered at the 2011 Masters of Tradition Festival in Cork at a concert devoted entirely to Flynn's music. Outside of his recent collaborations with traditional musicians, Flynn's music continues to be performed by major international classical musicians and ensembles around the world including the New Juilliard Ensemble, ConTempo Quartet, guitarist John Feeley and saxophonist Gerard McChrystal. He has also had a major radio special dedicated to his music on WNYC New York's New Sounds show hosted by John Schaefer.
    He completed it in 2010.

  • 2009
    Flynn's second album, Contemporary Traditional Irish Guitar',' was released in 2009 on Frisbee Records.
    More Details Hide Details The album contains completely solo guitar versions of music by some of the best traditional Irish music composers of the 20th Century, most particularly Paddy Fahey, 20 Fahey compositions feature on the album. There is also music by Ed Reavy, Liz Carroll. Charlie Lennon, Larry Redican and Tommy Peoples. One of Flynn's own compositions, The Mahatma of the Glen, a tribute to the late fiddle player James Byrne, also features. This is a reworking of three of the sections of his earlier piece Music for the Departed. The album has received considerable critical acclaim.
  • 2006
    Flynn continues to build a parallel career as concert music composer and multi-genre performer. His debut recording 'Draíocht', a mix of traditional Irish music and new compositions and songs based on the tradition, was released late in 2006.
    More Details Hide Details Most of the songs on the album were co-written with the poet/lyricist Pádraic Ó'Beírn. Also featured on the album are some of his regular musical partners including fiddler Liz Coleman, percussionist Aidan Dunphy, bassist Brian O'Toole and guitarist Ciarán Swift. The album was co-produced by Flynn with engineers Manus Lunny and Paul Thomas. Writing in Irish Music Magazine, critic John O'Regan says, "Draíocht is one of the most surprising debuts to hit my ears in ages... An interesting and intriguing collection from a tunesmith, instrumentalist and composer, Dave Flynn is a name to conjure with and Draíocht is very definitely worth an open-minded listen."
    During his time in London, Flynn became strongly involved with the London Irish traditional music scene, performing regularly in concerts and sessions with some of the leading Irish musicians in London. Flynn remained in London until the beginning of 2006 when he returned to live in Ireland.

  • 2005
    Flynn caused further controversy in the JMI in 2005 when his article "Looking for the Irish Bartók" questioned the failure of established Irish classical composers to engage with traditional Irish music and musicians.
    More Details Hide Details Despite some harsh criticism of Flynn's ideas from some of the established Irish composers, his article resonated with traditional Irish musicians who had in the past largely been ignored or denigrated by the Irish classical music establishment. This article directly led to Flynn's contact with the renowned traditional Irish fiddler Martin Hayes and his musical partner, guitarist Dennis Cahill. In 2006, the Masters of Tradition Festival in Cork commissioned Flynn to compose a piece for Hayes and Cahill to perform with the classical violinist Ioana Petcu-Colan. The resulting piece Music for the Departed was premiered at the Masters of Tradition Festival in August 2006 and received its US Premiere in 2010 at the Irish American Arts Center in New York. It was described as "A magnificent new work for fiddle, violin and guitar" by the Irish Examiner (USA).
    His prize was a commission to elaborate Slip into his String Quartet No. 2 "The Cranning" for the 2005 festival where it was premiered by the Smith Quartet to the acclaim of critics including Neil Fisher of The Times who praised Flynn for "incorporating traditional Irish music without Hollywood pastiche".
    More Details Hide Details Music critic Michael Dervan of The Irish Times wrote: "Flynn is attempting to bring the influence of traditional Irish music into the hallowed realms of the classical string quartet and moments in the Smith Quartet's performance of this minimalist influenced work gelled to perfection." Earlier in 2004 Flynn had instigated the foundation of the Young Composers Collective (YCC) in Ireland. Flynn announced the YCC with an article in the Journal of Music in Ireland (JMI) in which he criticised established bodies for failing to support young composers. The article caused considerable controversy and debate but ultimately led to the YCC providing a platform for a large number of previously unknown young composers to have their music performed. The YCC has since evolved into the Irish Composers' Collective. Flynn is no longer a member according to the ICC website.
  • 2004
