Sunday, June 12, 2016, 3:00pm, Play On! Chamber Ensemble, “Out Of This World – Music of Stars, Spheres and the Spirit”
Play On! Chamber Ensemble will perform a concert of instrumental and vocal music of Bach, Lehar, Bozza, Josef Strauss, and will feature Apparitions, a song cycle by one of the Northwest’s finest composers, John Muehleisen. This is a premiere of a new arrangement of settings of six Walt Whitman poems. They will also premiere Kris Iverson’s arrangement of Liszt’s Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude. Originally a piano piece, Kris has arranged this piece for Play On! for soprano, clarinet, violin, and piano Four-hands. The Lamertine poem that was included when the original piano piece was published provides the text. Related poetry will be presented throughout the concert.
