Friday, November 20, 7:30pm
In recognition of American Music Month, the club’s November program will feature works by four living American composers, including a new piece by Pittsburgh composer, Gay Kahkonen, to be premiered by Daniel Parasky, the flutist who commissioned the work, and pianist Matt Klumpp. Klumpp will also collaborate with lyric soprano, Sophia Mintas, to present songs by Ned Rorem and Kirke Mechem.
Pianist Beverly Hritz has chosen to treat the audience to a work by Oscar-nominated avant-garde composer, Philip Glass.
An unusual trio combination will play an American arrangement of a piece that Beethoven wrote for an equally unlikely – for its time - trio of instruments. Performing this trio are Linda Urbani, flute and guests, Michelle Ogg, clarinet and Janet Solomon, double bass.
Soprano Cynthia Ortiz will finish the program with two jazz standards by Alan Bergman and Jerome Kern.
Admission is free to club members and voluntary donations are accepted from non-members at the door. All are invited to a reception following the recital.
