Paine Mountain Arts Council is trying something new this year- co sponsoring classical concerts at Norwich University. Hope to see you there!
The Norwich University Classical Concert Series will present InoraBrass on Friday, March 20th at 7:30 pm at White Chapel at Norwich University. The program will include brass quintet classics by Victor Ewald and Eugene Bozza, film composer Michael Kamen’s soulful Quintet, as well as a variety of American standards. InoraBrass members have performed professionally throughout the United States and internationally, including with the Nashville Symphony, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Phish, the Vermont Symphony, on Broadway, and at Carnegie Hall. Inora’s debut concert in August 2014 “wowed” Seven Days reviewer Amy Lilly with a “sonorous wall of blown sound.”
Arioso, a chamber group featuring Linda Radtke, alto, Elizabeth Reid, violist, and Alison Cerutti, pianist, will perform a concert at 12:15 PM in White Chapel on Thursday, March 26. Central Vermont’s chamber music ensemble will present music by Purcell, Bach, Rebecca Clarke, and Vermont composer Michael Close’s “Songs about Cheese”. “These songs are endearing, quirky, and lyrical,” remarks Radtke, “and I love the texts, which were written by the composer. I even get to yodel in the Swiss cheese movement!”
The concerts are sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, The College of Science and Mathematics, Norwich University Development, Norwich University Student Activities, and the Paine Mountain Arts Council, and are free and open to the public.
