Our first regular subscription concert will be on November 6 back in the lovely Solebury Trinity Episcopal Church. In this program entitled The Degenerates we will explore the works of composers categorized as such by the Nazi regime for the color of their skin or their religion. The inspired String Quartet # 2 of Florence Price will be shared along with string Quartet No. 1 in A major by Alexander Zemlinsky and String Quartet No. 1 in E flat major by Felix Mendelssohn. Violist David Samuel of the Alexander String Quartet will have his first performance here with Concordia.

Subscription concert #2 on February 26 is Cello2Cello. This program will explore two rarely heard cello quintets. First we will share the Quintet in G minor, Opus 46, #4 by Luigi Boccherini. Then we perform the famous and much loved Kreutzer Sonata by Beethoven. This masterpiece was arranged for a quintet allowing us to hear the nearly symphonic writing distributed among five voices. Some say the arrangement may have been penned by Beethoven himself! This concert will introduce you to the versatile cellist Jeff Ziegler, former member of the legendary Kronos String Quartet. Also a young award winning violinist Anna Lee will be joining us for the first time.

Program:

Our season culminates with a program The Telling is in the Music on April 16th. The Piano Trio “be still and know” by Carlos Simon will open our concert. Then we explore Pisachi (Reveal) by Chickasaw classical composer Jerod Impichichaachaachaaha Tate. This string quartet allows us to use our classical language to speak the language of Jerod Tate’s cultural heritage. We close this program with the Piano Quintet, Opus 57 by Dimitri Shostakovich whose music conveys lessons learned from his experiences in Communist Russia. The young superstar violist from Jamaica, Jordan Bak will be joining our wonderful line up of musicians.

Sam Reider & The Human Hands

“modern folk music with saxophone and accordion.”

— The New York Times 

Irresistible melodies, fiery improvisation, and otherworldly sounds collide in what Songlines magazine dubbed a “mash-up of the Klezmatics, Quintette du Hot Club de France, and the Punch Brothers.” The New York Times calls it “modern folk music with saxophone and accordion.”  

The Human Hands got their start playing regular late night sessions at well-known dives and venues like Brooklyn’s Barbès and Sunny’s, and Manhattan’s Rockwood Music Hall. The group has evolved into a 21st-century folk music orchestra featuring a rotating cast of some of the brightest names in jazz, bluegrass, classical, and world music.

Sam Reider & The Human Hands will delight and entertain us with their unique style of modern folk music which draws inspiration from sources ranging from Woody Guthrie to George Gershwin to Ennio Morricone. Sam will be joined by Eddie Barbash on sax and Roy Williams on guitar.

This wonderful evening includes a short welcoming reception with nibbles and spirits, followed by a lively performance by Sam Reider & The Human Hands and, finally, a fabulous dinner feast! All in the tranquil and bucolic setting of Cradle Valley Farm.

Program:

Ritornello 2.sq.2.j.a. — Caroline Shaw 
Trojan Women – Hecuba and Cassandra — Lisa Bielawa
Quiet Art from Impressions for string quartet — Jennifer Higdon
Leyendas, An Andean Walkabout — Gabriela Lena Frank
