The first concert of Vashon Chamber Music’s 11th season opens with Paul Schoenfeld’s “Cafe Music”, a jazz-inspired romp for piano, violin and cello. Vashon baritone Hugh Davis follows with a set of cabaret songs. After intermission we present Arnold Schoenberg’s Germany-between-the-wars expressionist masterpiece, Pierrot Lunaire. Famous for its use of Sprechstimme (“singspeaking”) by the solo soprano, this piece stunned audiences when premiered and continues to captivate audiences today. Artists featured on this program are Dawn Padula, soprano, Maria Sampen, violin, Jennifer Rhyne, flute, Jennifer Nelson, clarinet, Tanya Stambuk, piano, Anna Wittstruck, conductor and Rowena Hammill, cello/piano.
