Concert Announcement!

It’s a new year, a new season, and I’m playing some music in Michigan next month. flute-organ-concert-announcement-october-16-2016-landscape

Dr. Timothy Huth is an organist in the Detroit area. He actively promotes concert music for the organ as well as new works. He previously was the organist at the First Presbyterian Church of Dearborn for nearly ten years before moving on to other opportunities. He received his DMA from the University of Michigan where he studied with Marilyn Mason.

The venue, the main sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church, houses a rare concert (Aeolian Skinner) organ. This wonderful venue also provides an extraordinary visual and listening space for flute and the two instruments together combine to achieve musical heights that are truly unique. The concert consists of both duets and solo pieces prepared that will soar and sing in this architectural gem (An Alden Dow landmark structure).

Check out the Facebook event for updates as we get closer to the date!


I’m so excited to be going home and for the chance to work with Tim Huth again. We’ve played together a lot, beginning when I would play in church as a wee undegrad at UMmich. We’re playing some really interesting pieces; I’m performing a (new-to-me!) work by Salvatore Sciarrino which should sound amazing in the large open church, and Tim’s premiering a new organ piece by Jesse Diener-Bennett.

Hope to see you there!

Anne and Chuck play Duos!

Works by Scelsi, Jolivet, Kerekes, Kirsten and Johnson.

 

 

Anne Dearth (making her Boston debut!) and Chuck Furlong are presenting an evening of modern works for flute and clarinet, interspersed with the Counting Duets by Tom Johnson. A very diverse program, performance art works such as Pirouette on a Moon Sliver by Amy Beth Kirsten are contrasted with European avant-garde works Sonatine by Andre Jolivet and Ko-Lho by Giacinto Scelsi.

Chuck Furlong is an active performer in the Boston and New York areas. He has performed with Boston Modern Orchestra Project, North End Music and Performing Arts Commission (NEMPAC) Opera Project, and Boston Opera Collaborative. In the fall of 2014, he co-founded Soundry, an ensemble dedicated to performing contemporary music rarely heard in Boston. His most recent project, Rested Field, is a free improv trio exploring acoustic and electroacoustic soundscapes.

In New York, Chuck has performed with Contemporaneous, played Pierrot Lunaire as part of the Austrian Cultural Forum’s Arnold Schoenberg series and performed in the Nouveau Classical Project’s In & Around C at Gallery 128. Chuck has also been involved with Bang On A Can, performing as a fellow at the 2013 and 2014 Summer Festivals and playing at the 2012 marathon. With two other 2014 Summer Festival alumni, he helped to create Exceptet, an ensemble using the instrumentation of Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du soldat. Most recently, Exceptet performed at Merkin Concert Hall as part of the co-presented Ecstatic Music/MATA Interval Festival.

Spring Events

It’s finally SPRING!
IMG_0889I took this picture of my neighbor’s tree this week. The cherry blossoms knew this beautiful weather was coming😉

I’ve come out on the other side of winter application season mostly unscathed, and I have some events coming up. I’m really excited to be playing at The Owl this weekend. I finally got to check it out this past Sunday and it’s beyond amazing, so happy it’s in the neighborhood. And that it lets me play in the hood too!

Later this spring, I’m trekking up to Boston to play a concert with the wonderful Chuck Furlong. He’s been doing a lot of exciting things in Boston and New York, check them all out here. It’s been way too long since we’ve played together (2011?!) and it’ll be my first time in Boston. (Yay new cities!)
