Ivy Street Chamber Ensemble Performs in Salida April 21
The Ivy Street Ensemble, the Colorado Symphony's premier Chamber Music trio, will perform in Salida on Thursday, April 21 at 7:30 pm in the SteamPlant.
The Ensemble is composed of nationally renowned virtuosos Phillip Stevens (Viola), Catherine Peterson (Flute), and Erik Peterson (Violin). For fifteen years they have performed for audiences throughout the country, and frequently are featured on Colorado Public Radio. The trio recently won Second Place for The American Prize Chamber Music 2015, have been finalists in the National Flute Assn. Chamber Music Competition, and were selected for a special commission by Chamber Music America.
For their Salida concert, the Ensemble promises a diverse array of classical chamber works from the Baroque Era to 21st Century compositions. The evening's program will include "Welcome Serenade" by Peter Schickle; "Serenade for Flute, Violin and Viola" by Ludwig von Beethoven; "The Great Train Race" by Ian Clarke; "Three Madrigals for Violin and Viola" by Bohslav Martinu, and "Serenade for Flute, Violin, and Viola" by Kenji Bunch.
The Ivy Street Ensemble members also will present a free mini-concert and Q-&-A session for Salida High School students as part of Symphonic Salida's popular youth outreach program, designed to introduce classical music to local young people.
Presented by KHEN Community Radio, the performance is the third in an annual four-concert series organized each year by Symphonic Salida in collaboration with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. Salida is the only Colorado town outside of Denver to be honored with regular performances by the CSO; and the Symphony recently announced that it again has chosen Salida for a 2016-17 season concert series as well.
