The Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival will be capping off the 2016 summer concert series with concerts in Weaverville, Redding, and San Francisco on the weekend of August 26, 27, and 28. The programs will feature composer and violinist Alisa Rose, who will be joined by pianist Amy Zanrosso and cellist Elizabeth Vandervennet for a program of music by Shostakovich, Dvorák, Prokofiev, and a new work by Rose herself.
Now celebrating its sixth season, this festival has had a busy summer. At its annual retreat in Hyampom, California, the festival hosted 20 musicians from across the United States and Canada. The musicians performed for children and families at summer camps, presented 12 free public concerts in Humboldt, Shasta, and Trinity Counties, and enjoyed a backpacking trip in the Trinity Alps Wilderness. Musicians also visited the Redwood National Parks Centennial Celebration on June 26th for a public performance in the redwoods, featuring a premiere of a new work by California composer Danny Clay.
The coming performances will feature Russian works by Sergei Prokofiev and Dmitri Shostakovich, Antonin Dvorák’s elegiac and folksy “Dumky Trio”, and a world-premiere of Alisa Rose’s new composition, “Piano Trio for Luisa”, a commission by festival sponsor Michael Cogan of Redding.
Thanks to private and corporate sponsors, the festival is able to offer all of its concerts as free events, asking audience members to contribute what they can in the form of a suggested donation.
