FULL PRESS RELEASE:
LunART Festival is pleased to be part of the Arts @ First Series, presenting: A Wintry Mix Chamber Music Collective on Saturday, February 23 at 7:00pm at First United Methodist Church (203 Wisconsin Avenue, Madison, Wis.) featuring Arbor Ensemble and Black Marigold.
LunART Festival is dedicated to promoting and celebrating women in the arts through public performances, exhibitions, workshops, and interdisciplinary collaboration. After a very successful inaugural season, LunART is pleased to announce Season 2019 will take place in Madison, June 6-9. While the main focus is a summer festival, LunART also presents events throughout the year, such as this midwinter collaborative concert.
The Madison-based Arbor Ensemble and Black Marigold will perform an array of works by women composers for strings, winds and piano from the past 100 years, highlighting both historically notable composers and introducing less familiar pioneers of today.
Arbor Ensemble will premiere their newly commissioned Trio Cerulean by Cherise Leiter, in addition to their arrangement of Germaine Tailleferres Piano Trio for flute, viola, and piano. Arbor members Berlinda Lopez (flute), Marie Pauls (viola), and Stacy Fehr-Regehr (piano) seek to connect with audiences through their personal sound and colorful instrumentation. Their innovative programming showcases lesser known chamber works, and the group has developed a niche promoting music of women composers.
The highly regarded, award-winning Quintet for Wind Instruments of Grayna Bacewicz will be performed by Black Marigold, a dynamic wind quintet known for their captivating and energetic performances. Members are Iva Ugrcic (flute), Laura Medisky (oboe), Bethany Schultz (clarinet), Juliana Mesa (bassoon), and Kia Karlen (horn). Advocates of new music and living composers, Black Marigold fosters fresh perceptions of new music by programming pieces that are equally enjoyable for performers and audiences.
The ensembles will collaborate by mixing members and instrumentation, and rounding out the program with Duo for Oboe and Viola by Hilary Tann, Doppler Effect for flute, clarinet and piano by Adrienne Albert, D'un Matin de Printemps by Lili Boulanger, and Amy Beach's Quartet for Strings, Op.89. Guest artists Laura Mericle (violin), Shannon Farley (violin) and Samantha Sinai (cello) will join Arbor violist Marie Pauls for the performance of the Beach. The quartet was a featured ensemble at the inaugural season LunART Festival this past summer. Visit lunartfestival.org for more information.
