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).

O beata Trinitas: Renaissance music for Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Renaissance Singers
David Allinson, conductor

A central tenet of Christian belief is that there is one creator, who is simultaneously Father, Son and Holy Ghost — the formulation so familiar from the Creed, and in countless prayers, that it may pass almost without a thought. The mysterious and frequently-misunderstood concept is celebrated on Trinity Sunday, one of the few major feasts in the calendar that celebrates a doctrine rather than an event or individual. In music, the concept became linked with the harmony of the major triad.

Join us for this programme of sublime mass music and motets in honour of the Trinity written during the Renaissance period, by composers from England (Tallis, Sheppard, Byrd), the low countries (Josquin, de Rore), Italy (Palestrina) and Iberia and the New World (Guerrero, Victoria, Lopez Castillas).

Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi

Spoleto's 'Festival of the Two Worlds', an annual international music, art and culture event, was founded in 1958 by Italian composer Gian Carlo Menotti. Menotti was artistic director of the festival until the mid-1990s, when he handed over the reigns to his adopted son, Francis Menotti. But as soon as Gian Carlo Menotti died in 2007, there were various legal wrangles about the festival's future, and Francis eventually had to give up attempting to reclaim it from a group of people including Italian film and theatre director Giorgio Ferrara, who was assigned as the new artistic director by the Italian government.
