Contemporary Music/Traditional Roots: Music of Evan Chambers
Fresh off his recent recording triumph The Old Burying Ground, Professor Evan Chambers presents an array of his chamber compositions in conjunction with UMMA’s exhibition Out of the Ordinary: Selections from the Bohlen Wood Art and Fusfeld Folk Art Collections. Small and large ensembles perform works invoking folk music from around the world, including Three Tannahill Songs, Firehose Reel, and Cold Water, Dry Stone, as well as the premiere of Chambers’s new Lindisfarne Hymn. Chambers is joined by Professors John Ellis, Paul Schoenfeld, Chad Burrow, Jeffrey Lyman, Andrew Jennings, local performers Gabriel Bolkosky and Jennifer Goltz, and students from the UM School of Music, Theatre, and Dance. The exhibition gallery will be open for browsing 30 minutes before the performance and during intermission.
This concert is made possible in part by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund.
