On March 30th at 7:30 PM, Trinity Western University’s School of the Arts, Media and Culture will present an evening of Chamber Music in the Instrumental Rehearsal Hall featuring four diverse ensembles.  Audience members will be treated to music for guitar ensemble, clarinet trio, wind quintet and a movement of a double cello concerto.  Dr. Allan Thorpe, the Department of Music’s Director of Instrumental Activities, is impressed with the initiative that students have shown in bringing forth ideas for this program.  “Seeing students excited about playing chamber music together reminds me why I love my job so much.”

What’s on the menu for the evening?  The guitar ensemble will bring a number of well known classical rock pieces, including some by the Beatles, Kansas and Eric Clapton.  A movement of a trio by Beethoven, originally written for two oboes and English horn, will be performed by the clarinet trio.  The wind quintet brings three diverse works: a peaceful “Pastorale” by Pierne, a jaunty movement from Ibert’s “Trios Pièces” and a rambunctious finale by Hindemith.  The opening movement from Vivaldi’s “Concerto for Two Cellos” will close the evening with high energy sequences of scales and arpeggios.

The evening of chamber music will be held in the Instrumental Hall of TWU’s Music Building on March 30th at 7:30 pm.  Admission is by donation ($5 suggested). 

This event is part of the Festival of the Arts, Media + Culture at Trinity Western University, March 29 - April 11 — two weeks of art, literature, music, film, and theatre events that showcase and celebrate the creative activity of TWU students and faculty.
