Sound, Silence, and Hope

Saturday, April 1st, 7 PM
While still practicing the art of sound, silence began to envelope composers Beethoven and Fauré. As each artist developed more and more hearing loss, neither gave up writing music. Discover the piano trios these composers wrote despite never being able to hear them on acoustic instruments and explore the sense of unbridled hope they both contain.
Featuring: Erin Durham, violin; Henry Stubbs, cello; and Amanda Halstead, piano

Fusion: Music and Culture

Saturday, May 6th, 8 PM
Take a bit of violin from Europe, mix in some tabla from India, and add a dash of American jazz. What do you get? Something new. Artists on the hunt for new forms of expression often find themselves fusing elements of different musical traditions. Round out our Levine Presents season by watching genres combine and hearing the amazing result.
Featuring: Josh Walker, guitar; Cristian Perez, guitar; Karine Chapdelaine, bass; Aaron Malone, violin; Paul Bratcher, piano; Avi Shah, tabla; Billy Williams, drums; and Manny Arciniega, percussion.
