Soprano Ellen McAteer and pianist Geoffrey Conquer present an afternoon of love, longing, and laughter.  "The Water is Wide" will journey from Mozart's charming lieder to Canteloube's haunting Chants d'Auvergne (Songs of the Auvergne) to selections from Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Boy's Magic Horn), ending with Britten's beautiful folksong settings

Four members of the KW Symphony will play Debussy's First String Quartet, in G minor, Op. 10.

Don't let the formal title of this extraordinary work fool you!  Debussy's First String Quartet is anything but formal.  Its fleeting mood, ravishing grandeur, and subtlety of timbre eclipse the rigours of traditional form.  Follow that with the fun of William Bolcom's Ghost Rags and you'll find a classical road map to jazz.  Join friends from the KW Symphony in this performance of music that enlivens and inspires.

In October 1998, university student Matthew Shepard was targeted for his sexuality. He was kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence and left to die in a lonely field.

Twenty years after that terrible event, we perform Craig Hella Johnson’s bold and transcendent work, which incorporates a variety of musical styles and texts, including passages from Matthew’s personal journal.
