The Earhart Quartet is made up of the talented vocal performers, sopranos Sarah Moyer and Brenna Wells, mezzo-soprano Christina English, and alto Emily Marvosh. Hailing from the four corners of the country, they are experienced professional ensemble and solo artists with flexible techniques, a range of specialties, and a passion for chamber music. Their performance showcases the beauty and variety of vocal chamber music by presenting music written for female voices from medieval to modern. The program covers 900 years of vocal music, starting with Gregorian chant, with examples through the various periods up to the present, and ending with a special world premier composition.

Tom Broderick has been part of Friends of Music for fifteen years. He is a passionate advocate for classical music, and has been instrumental in providing Brookings-Harbor with world-class musicians who never fail to entertain and widen our horizons in an endless variety of classical music.

Coastal Classical Music: ZOFO

In this edition of Coastal Classical Music, host George Cady previews the Brookings-Harbor Friends of Music concert of September 18, 2016. This, the first concert of Friends of Music’s 32rd season, features ZOFO, a four-hand piano duo. The four hands belong to internationally acclaimed solo pianists Eva-Maria Zimmerman and Keisuke Nakagoshi, who have thrilled audiences around the world with their outside-the-box piano artistry.

The concert will feature four composers (Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky, Leonard Bernstein, and Harold Shapero) who knew each other, learned from each other, wrote music for four-hands piano, and at times, “shared the bench” or used the genre to explore larger symphonic forms.

ZOFO has previously recorded the same program in an album that received a Grammy nomination for best performance by a small chamber music ensemble. The program concludes with a stirring rendition of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring in its original four-hand version.

Other topics explored in this interview include how language is important to culture and how the Tribe continues its efforts to preserve its language even though there are no living tribal members completely fluent in the native tongue.

In addition, our guests share details about the upcoming 24th Annual Gathering of the People, an annual pow wow event that honors cultural history, sacred traditions, tribal elders, and veterans. The Confederated Tribes of the Lower Rogue extends an open invitation to join this very special community at their alcohol-free event this coming Sept 17th and 18th.

Please listen for upcoming Cultural Connections programs with more information about the 24th annual Pow Wow. Check out the Confederated Tribes of the Lower Rogue’s Facebook page for more information about the Tribe, its heritage, upcoming events, and details of the Tribe’s efforts to become a federally recognized tribe.

Federal recognition would provide significant opportunities for additional grant funding and, therefore, for community and economic development in this currently underserved area of Curry County, Oregon.
