Musica Sierra presents Musical Headwaters
Musica Sierra presents New Vintage Baroque, an adventurous historical instrument ensemble dedicated to the creation of 21st century music. Berkeley-based keyboard, vocalist and composer Majel Connery, Canadian violinist Edwin Huizinga and Pennsylvanian bassoonist Ben Matus take you on a first-person sonic experience of the Sierra Valley landscape in a world premiere performance of the electronic song cycle, The Rivers Are Our Brothers. Keeping in the spirit of the unique programming style of New Vintage Baroque, this program will also feature various arrangements for Baroque violin and bassoon including Vivaldi’s iconic Four Seasons.
*Doors open at 6 pm with cash bar. Concert begins at 7 pm.
This program is brought to you through Musica Sierra’s pilot residency program, Musical Headwaters, which brings musicians and composers of New Vintage Baroque to the headwaters of the middle fork of the Feather River to compose and perform works which reflect the natural world.
Program sponsors: The Firefly Scientist Foundation, Sierra County Arts Council, Sierra Schools Foundation, First 5 Sierra, Sierra-Plumas Joint Unified, The Feather River Land Trust, Lucy Blake, and Steven Nightingale.
This program is presented as part of UPSTAGE: A Literary and Performing Art Series supported by the Nightingale Family Foundation and the Williams Foundation.
