This has been a super fun project. I am celebrating my third seventeenth birthday (math!) and I got the idea a few months back to see if any of my composer friends wanted to write a short piece on the theme 17 x 3. Whatever that means. I put the word out on Facebook, and now we have eleven fantastic new compositions! We'll be performing them on Wednesday, Nov. 18th at the Chapel Performance Space at 8 pm. Sponsored by the Wayward Music Series, the Chapel has a suggested donation of $5 - $15, cash only at the door. And there will be cake. The awesome performers are Paris Hurley, violin, me on viola, Beth Fleenor, clarinet and bass clarinet, and Steve Schermer, bass. And the wonderful Seattle composers are John Coons, Amy Denio, Nat Evans, Evan Flory-Barnes, Brad Hawkins, William Hayes, Jim Knapp, Jessica Lurie, Michael Owcharuk, Michaud Savage and Ben Thomas! I hope to get the video up on this website for people to check out later. Lots of great music came out of this little inkling.
Trio Pardalote does a road trip! Well, sort of a ferry trip, too...concerts over the course a month in Bellevue, West Seattle and Bainbridge Island. We are performing some of our most beloved music plus some new stuff we're working up. I love playing with Tori and Rowena. Beethoven, Jean Cras, Gideon Klein, Hans Krása, Erno von Dohnanyi, Mozart...lots of music.
