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).

A Libero Canto project: The Cozy Side of Beethoven

In 2020, the world will celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday. In anticipation of his sestercentennial, this coming June 26 & 28, 2019, singers Deborah Carmichael, Kinga Cserjési, Berry Jones, and Peter Ludwig, joined by instrumentalists Nikita Morozov (violin), Valeriya Sholokhova (cello), and Doug Martin (piano), will perform some of Beethoven’s little-known vocal works, as well as familiar favorites. For more information, visit www.liberocanto.org.
Program will include various ensemble and solo works by Beethoven including:
-concert aria Ah, perfido!
-Mir ist so wunderbar from the opera Fidelio
-Piano Trio in E-flat major, Op.70, No.2: IV. Finale. Allegro
-Selections from Scottish Songs, Welsh Songs, and other Lieder

On June 26th, at 7:30pm, the Beethoven concert will be held at the Hungarian House, 213 East 82nd Street, New York, NY. Tickets available at https://beethoven2019.eventbrite.com
The concert on June 28th, 5pm is the 2nd annual benefit concert for the Amagansett Life-Saving Station (160 Atlantic Ave. Amagansett, Long Island, NY 11930). Held in the boat room, tickets are $20 per person in advance (amagansettlss.org); $25 at the door. Seating is limited and all seats are general admission.
“The Amagansett Life-Saving Station has been a unique centerpiece of Long Island history since it was built in 1902. Over a period of 44 years, the dedicated men who worked at the Station saved thousands of lives. In 1942, four Nazi saboteurs were found by coastguardsman John Cullen during a nightly beach patrol in front of the Station. And in 1966, the building was rescued from demolition and purchased for a dollar by Joel Carmichael whose family lived there for the rest of the twentieth century. After Carmichael's death in 2006, the house was donated back to Amagansett for historical preservation.” (cited with permission from OceanKeeperTheMovie.com)
On May 17, 2007, the East Hampton Town Board designated the Amagansett Life-Saving Station a historic landmark by resolution 2007-43. The board appointed an advisory committee of residents, which then became the nonprofit U.S. Amagansett Life-Saving and Coast Guard Station Society, overseeing the six-year restoration of the Station to its original 1902 design, an undertaking guided by the comprehensive Historic Structure Report commissioned from Historic Services Director Robert Hefner.

The four singers of “The Cozy Side of Beethoven” are students and teachers of the Libero Canto approach. Libero Canto is a way of teaching and learning singing that liberates the vocal and musical potential of singers who wish to develop singing as an art form, and makes the joy of singing accessible to anyone who seeks it. www.liberocanto.org

The name Libero Canto comes from the phrase, “la via al libero canto,” the path to free singing. This approach was first developed by Lajos Szamosi in Budapest before the Second World War. Libero Canto is a path, a process, and an attitude toward singing and music making. It is a humanistic, holistic approach that values authentic expression and the unfolding of individual potential, and trusts that if we imagine music clearly and allow our true, vital impulses to come through, the wisdom of the body will carry us toward increasing freedom in singing.
