Reception at 5 pm with wine and cheese, and 45-minute concert at 5:37pm!
Our next performance, entitled Reflections Through the Years, features music spanning over three centuries of great compositions. We start with Schwob clarinet faculty, Dr. Lisa Oberlander, playing three movements from Bach’s sweeping Cello Suite No. 2, written in 1717 and arranged for Bb clarinet. Next is Dvorak’s beautiful and haunting work for cello written in 1883, Silent Woods, performed by Schwob student Kevin Zapata. After this, Schwob horn professor Dr. Anne-Marie Cherry will partner with electronic specialist Nick Williams in Gina Gille’s 2022 work Pale Blue Dot, a fabulously inventive piece blending acoustic and electronic elements. The program will conclude with Ukrainian composer Borys Lyatoshynsky’s virtuosic Reflections, a powerful work for piano written in 1925, and performed by Schwob student Anastasiia Zakharchenko, also hailing from Ukraine. The designs for this program will be offered by incredible young artist, Greysen Turner, who comes to us from South Carolina.
