Our 2022 Season
From Bach to Beethoven, Shin to Snider, and poignancy to possibility....the 2022 season visits many corners of the chamber music repertory, yet all with the potential to touch our souls. How Graceful Some Things Are, our February 1 performance at the Marigny Opera House, invites us to the flawless elegance of J.S. Bach with movements of his Suite No. 4 for Cello, and Partita No. 3 for Violin. With The Alex Set from Daniel Asia, we then travel to the soundworld of classical-contemporary solo alto saxophone, a rare treat for New Orleans.
Mezzo-soprano Claire Shackleton, with pianist Peter Collins, bring songs from the endearingly authentic Charles Ives, and three of his 114 Songs. The touching (if not haunting) reflection of Sarah Kirkland Snider then offers an atypical yet meaningful concert conclusion.
For our May performances at the Marigny Opera House and the Deutsches Haus, we perform an all-German, all-wind program, featuring a masterwork from Beethoven, the Octet for Winds, as well as another Octett for Winds, by Carl Reinecke.
