Trio Ariadne premieres The Mixed Multitude on November 25
New Chamber Work Evokes Biblical Imagery
A mixed multitude went up with the Children of Israel on their exodus from Egypt —with livestock in great abundance, both flocks and herds. Resident artists Elizabeth Joy Roe, piano; Carol McGonnell, clarinet; and Sæunn Thorsteinsdottir, cello, join musical guests Jennifer Cho, violin, and Alex Camphouse, horn, to premiere Brian S. Wilson's, The Mixed Multitude for violin, cello, clarinet, horn and piano.
Also on the program will be Poulenc's Clarinet Sonata and Shulamit Ran's Monologue, both featuring Carol McGonnell, clarinet.
The 7:30 pm concert takes place in Schroeder Hall. Tickets are free and available in advance or at the Green Music Center box office an hour before the concert.
