Pro Musica Colorado Chamber Orchestra (PMC) has your Bach and so much more. On March 27th, 7:30 pm at the Mountain View United Methodist Church (355 Ponca Place, Boulder, CO), Pro Musica Colorado will be presenting "Bach and Beyond," taking listeners from the beauty of Bach to the musical hybridity of Golijov. Edward Dusinberre, first violinist of the Grammy-award winning Takács String Quartet, joins PMC in Bach’s Concerto in E Major for Violin and Orchestra.
Edward Dusinberre was born in 1968 in Leamington Spa, England, and enjoyed playing and performing from a young age. At the Royal College of Music in London, Edward studied with Felix Andrievsky and members of the Chilingirian Quartet. In 1990 he won the British Violin Recital Prize and gave his debut recital in London at the Purcell Room, South Bank Centre. After graduating from the Royal College of Music, Edward continued his studies at the Juilliard School with Dorothy DeLay and Piotr Milewski. Edward's completion of his studies at Juilliard happily coincided with the opportunity to audition with the Takács Quartet which he joined in September 1993.
Also on the program is Haydn’s Symphony No. 44, the Trauer, a String Sinfonia by Mendelssohn, and Last Round, an evocative and poignant work by the two Grammy Award recipient, Argentinean composer Osvaldo Golijov.
“We were very thrilled to perform Golijov’s cantata, Oceana, with Ars Nova Singers two years ago, now we’re presenting a work of his that is perhaps more traditional,” says PMC Music Director, Cynthia Katsarelis.
This concert is the first of Pro Musica Colorado's brand new concert format called Far and Near. Each Far and Near concert will benefit other non-profit organizations close to home and far away. For the concert, PMC has teamed up with the Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA) and the Orchestras Feeding America campaign of the League of American Orchestras. PMC is encouraging their patrons to bring an item from the list on their website (www.promusicacolorado.org
) to help support families in need in Boulder County. This is the near component.
For the far, they have partnered with Colorado Haiti Project, and will be asking for donations at the concert to give renewal, relief and hope to Haiti. In Haiti, Katsarelis, saw the power of music to bring people together while teaching at the Holy Trinity School of Music. 20% of all donations to Pro Musica Colorado Chamber Orchestra will go directly to the Colorado Haiti Project.
Tickets for this concert are $20 for adults, $15 for Seniors and $10 for Students, available online at www.promusicacolorado.org
