Musaica presents “A Musaica Reunion”

Musaica Chamber Ensemble concludes its 15th Season, “Reconnecting,” with “A Musical Reunion.” Included will be a trio arrangement for bass, harp, and trombone of Ellis Marsalis’s “Fourth Autumn,”; “Portraits of Langston” by Valerie Coleman, for flute, clarinet, and piano, inspired by the jazz poetry of Langston Hughes; a world premiere by our Composition Workshop participant, William Montgomery, a sextet for flute, oboe, violin, viola, cello, and harp, which musically describes our reemergence into and reunion with the city; and the beautiful and poignant Quintet for clarinet and strings by Johannes Brahms. This will be dedicated to all the essential workers who have tirelessly seen us through to the other side of this pandemic.
We are allowing for a small audience at each of these performances, but the UNO concert will be live streamed as well from UNO’s School of the Arts Facebook page. This concert is sponsored by a generous grant from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation!

CANCELED: Testimony & Triumph with Shostakovich 5

Rejoicing in the 250th Anniversary of Beethoven’s birth we’ll open the program with Leonore Overture No. 3. This awe-inspiring symphonic work holds grand structure and brings the brilliance of Beethoven to the concert hall.

The presence of Jorge Federico Osorio is sure to enhance our concert program with colorful artistry as he performs R. Schumann’s Piano Concerto. Osorio has received international acclaim as the recipient of several prizes and awards – not only does he possess a wide variety of repertoire, but his ability to compel the audience with his execution of a work so rich in invention will serve as a true testament of his deep passion.
