Catherine Ramirez Wed. 1/28 – Andrew Nishikawa & 20/21 this Sunday, 2/1/09

28 01 2009

Tomorrow evening, Wednesday Jan. 28th, flutist Catherine Ramirez is giving a recital at 8:00 P.M. in Duncan Recital Hall. The concert will feature music of Jolivet, Karg-Elert, and Ikebe. Catherine is a one of a kind performer, and I would encourage everybody to come and see her play.

 

Next, this Sunday two great events are taking place at the Shepherd School of Music here in Houston, TX. The first is the student run new music ensemble 20/21’s spring concert,  taking place at 6:30 P.M. in Hirsch Orchestra Rehearsal Hall. The program features Michel van der Aa – Mask (2006); Kaija Saariaho – Lichtbogen (1986); and a premiere by Scordatura’s very own Kenneth Stewart. This is a must see!

 

The second event is composer/pianist Andrew Nishikawa’s second doctoral recital. It is taking place at 8:00 P.M. in Duncan Recital Hall, with works for string orchestra, flute quintet, percussion ensemble, piano, and mixed ensembles. Andrew has been interviewed on Scordatura, and I would highly recommend this event.

 

If you need directions or other information, please visit the Shepherd School of Music’s website. Happy listening!
