About the Concordia Chamberfest 2020

The Manzanita Music Collective was born from the desire to share live music with friends. Early in the summer, Concordia’s Artistic Director, Michelle Djokic invited the versatile violinist, Edwin Huizinga to become a “quararteam” with her and explore all the repertoire for violin and cello and then some! We invite you to watch and listen to the musical telling of these two musician’s navigating the difficulties of social distancing while safely bringing live music to small groups of friends on a tiny porch. Young filmmaker, Hamilton Hansen, collected footage of Michelle and Edwin’s efforts and created a documentary of sorts. 

The performance features musical selections which include arrangements of three Preludes from Bach’s Well Tempered Klavier, movements from the notable duos for violin and cello by Ravel, and Kodaly, and the entire Schulhoff Duo. Enjoy views of the nature that surround the musical duo from a beautiful California setting which was a continual source of their inspiration.
