Chamber Music Amici, preceded by Jefferson Street Quartet
​Monday, Feb. 15th

7:30 PM at the Wildish Community Theater
"White Man Sleeps" by Kevin Volans
Piano Quartet in G Minor by ​Gabriel Fauré

5:30 PM at the Emerald Art Center
Celebration of art selected for next season, with music provided by young musicians

This evening we present two pieces written exactly one hundred years apart.

Kevin Volans wrote his string quartet in 1986, based on the traditional music of several South African tribes. The piece is quite beautiful, with complex rhythms and shared melodic lines, and is a great deal of fun to listen to and to play.

Gabriel Fauré’s Piano Quartet in G Minor from 1886 is a piece filled with emotional contrast from the tempestuous to the tranquil. Throughout the quartet the characteristic harmonic richness and melodic craft of all Fauré’s work is evident.

I hope you enjoy these works as much as we do!

'Winding Down' at the Piano With David Nevue

Join pianist/composer David Nevue on Saturday, April 2nd at 7 PM for an evening of piano music at the intimate and beautiful Wildish Theater in Springfield OR.

In this one-time-only performance, award-winning pianist David Nevue will be performing music from latest album, "Winding Down." In a recent review, Winding Down was described by Zone Music Reporter's Bill Binkelman as Nevue's "Pieta, his Mona Lisa, his Aida, his Gone With The Wind, his Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.... his pinnacle of artistry."

Nevue will be performing "Winding Down" at this show in almost it's entirety. It's the ONLY concert performance where he will be performing many of these compositions.

Mr. Nevue is one of this generation's most well-known and beloved pianists. His albums include Overcome, which won "Best Instrumental Piano Album of 2005" at the Lifestyle Music Awards. He tours several times a year, and has performed concerts with David Lanz, Wayne Gratz, Peter Kater, Suzanne Ciani and dozens of other pianists. Nevue's piano stylings reflect a wide variety of musical influences, including the Irish band Clannad, Chopin, George Winston and even the progressive rock band Rush, but he is best-known for his melodic, peaceful style, and for the spiritual quality of his music.

In a concert setting, Nevue shares the stories behind the songs, giving insight into the music and what inspired it. His concerts are interactive and engaging and offer a musical experience that is unique and uplifting. Come out for a wonderful evening of music!

Tickets are $20 for Adults and $10 for Students.
