The Omaha Chamber Music Society continues itâ€™s Summer Concert Series this Sunday, June 21 with an event titled â€œCrossing the Atlantic.â€ This concert will feature violinist Mary Perkinson, cellist Greg Clinton, and pianist Stacie Haneline performing Schubertâ€™s E-flat piano trio, one of just two trios he completed. Violist Thomas Kluge will then join the line-up for a second set of trios by Luigi Boccherini:
â€œBoccherini knew string instruments, knew the technique…play very, very well and very effectively,â€ Kluge said.
Also on this concert is a new work by Stephen Bouma. Kluge says that he had a conversation with the composer not long after witnessing the premiere of one of his other works.
â€œI asked Stephen if heâ€™d written more music…inspired to do so by that conversation he had with me,â€ he said.
The final performance in the Summer Concert Series brings to Omaha the Moran Wind Quintet, made up of faculty at the University of Nebraska at Lincolnâ€™s School of Music. The quintet will perform selections from Henri Brod, Alexander Zemlinsky, and the Nebraska premiere of â€œDreams of the White Tigerâ€ by Daniel Baldwin.
The quintetâ€™s bassoonist, Jeffrey McCray, says they will also play a selection from award-winning performing artist Valery Coleman.
â€œA composer and flutist in New York, she founded the Imani Winds…one of the first pieces she wrote specifically for them,â€ McCray said.
The Omaha Chamber Music Societyâ€™s â€œSummer Concert Seriesâ€ continues Sunday, June 21 with â€œCrossing the Atlantic,â€ followed by the Moran Quintet on Sunday, June 28. Both performances begin at 3 pm at First Central Congregational Church in Omaha. For tickets and more information, you can visit omahachambermusic.org.
