An entertaining evening for all – fun variety of percussion sounds with detailed explanations. Participation from audience members made the evening very special. THANK YOU, Matthew and Lisa! Well done!
On Monday evening, December 5, the Big Shoulders Ensemble joined enthusiastic guests with a delightful “chamber jam!”
Musicians traded off as they filled the evening with works of Mozart, Wagner, and others – playing together unrehearsed for the first time and filling the room with chamber music – the “way it was originally conceived.”
As the philosopher Goethe explained, chamber music is an “Intelligent conversation” – and the musicians of the Big Shoulders ensemble proved his point completely!
The ensemble WILL BE BACK in the spring – so stay tuned!!
