100th anniversary of the School of Music at the University of Kentucky.

130 players between the ages of 18-30 will appear onstage in this spectacular evening, which begins with the University of Kentucky’s Wind Symphony, performing an exciting array of contemporary and traditional concert band compositions. Among the selections are Sousa’s The Stars and Stripes Forever, all movements of Grainger’s Lincolnshire Posy, and the world premiere of Wildcat Run by composer James M. Stephenson, who will be in attendance. Designed to be ‘nothing but solid fun for 6 minutes’, Wildcat Run is a commission that highlights every section of the Symphony, with hints of Stephen Foster’s “My Old Kentucky Home” – a nod to the University’s 100 year run.

The University of Kentucky’s Symphony Orchestra follows with the Berlioz stand-alone Roman Carnival Overture, and Dvořák’s famous Symphony No.9: From the New World, which premiered at Carnegie Hall in 1893.

LGBTQ+ festival of chamber music

ChamberQUEER, an LGBTQ+ chamber music series based in Brooklyn, NY, announces its first season, ChamberQUEER 2019. Featuring over a dozen LGBTQ+ members of the classical music community and highlighting the music of queer composers, ChamberQUEER 2019 provides an alternative, inclusive space within the local classical music scene.

ChamberQUEER 2019 is comprised of two concerts and an informal open mic evening. On Friday, June 21, 2019, at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange in Park Slope, the series kicks off with a mixer at 7 pm, and an hour-long concert at 8. The program features the music of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, as well as other local composers Jessica Meyer, inti, and the late Pauline Oliveros, alongside music by Ethel Smyth. The program is rounded out by early-music selections of Corelli, to open a discussion about queering the canon of classical music.

On Saturday, June 22, 2019, ChamberQUEER will present an open-mic evening at another of its musical homes, Branded Saloon in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Presented by Branded Classical, ChamberQUEER invites a roster of 10 LGBTQ+ chamber music groups to play 10-minute sets in the informal, back-room music space at Branded, with a casual after-party to follow.

The series concludes on Sunday, June 23, 2019, back at BAX in Park Slope. At 7 PM, acclaimed musicologists Emily Wilbourne and Maria Zuazu will lead a discussion of the series’ offerings, and explore issues of queerness within classical music as they arise from a panel discussion. At 8 PM, ChamberQUEER will present its final concert of the series, featuring music of Hildegard von Bingen; Jessica Meyer; Saunder Choi; and Caroline Shaw. Madrigals of Claudio Monteverdi and Thomas Tallis are interwoven with the modern selections, as well as with improvisations on guitar by Grey McMurray, to explore the dialogue between early and contemporary music. The concert will also feature an excerpt from La Calisto of Francesco Cavalli, which features mezzo Liz Bouk as the god Giove. After the concert, ChamberQUEER hosts an afterparty in partnership with Ginger’s Bar on 5th Avenue in Park Slope.

Tickets are $18 advance, $20 door, and a discount is available to students and youth under 25. More information and tickets are available online via www.chamberqueer.org.

This marks ChamberQUEER’s first major appearance on the Brooklyn scene, though it launched informally with a workshop performance at Branded Saloon in February 2018. It hosts regular community events, such as house concerts and chamber music reading parties, and will soon expand into educational programming.

“I have been waiting for something like this for twenty years,” commented one audience member. “It feels like the right time for an organization to create an inclusive space for queer musicians to form community.”

This production is being presented through BAX's Visitors Program, a subsidized performance package rental program, and is a self-production by ChamberQUEER.

ChamberQUEER is a recipient of the Brooklyn Arts Fund (BAF) cultural grant. Brooklyn Arts Fund (DCLA) is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
