SOLI Chamber Ensemble Concert at Blue Star
“Driving, infectious music that brimmed with vitality…”
— Andrew Druckenbrod, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about Diego Vega
SOLI Chamber Ensemble, San Antonio’s premier contemporary chamber group, continues their 2009-2010 Season, “Voice of America.” The second exciting concert, “Premiere” will take place on Thursday, March 11 at 7:30pm in the Main Gallery at Blue Star Contemporary Art Center. Pre-Concert talks will be free for ticket holders each evening at 7pm with the ensemble and the composers.
PREMIERE features two works hand crafted by Timothy Kramer written for SOLI Chamber Ensemble: Cycles and Myths, and Key Fragments. Kramer's works have been performed widely throughout the United States and Canada – from Carnegie Hall to college campuses - and in Europe, South America, and Asia with performances by major symphony orchestras (Indianapolis, Detroit, Tacoma, San Antonio) chamber groups (North/South Consonance, ONIX Ensemble, Luna Nova, Detroit Chamber Winds) and university ensembles (Michigan State, Arizona State, Indiana University, Florida State). He has also been a featured composer at the San Antonio International Piano Competition, the Mostly Women Composers Festival in New York City, the Midwest International Clinic in Chicago, and at national conferences of the American Guild of Organists, the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States, the Society of Composers, Inc. and the College Music Society.
These concerts are presented as part of Contemporary Art Month in San Antonio, and are supported by Office of Cultural Affairs, City of San Antonio, Copland Fund for Music, Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts.
