SECU Auditorium, East Building
Blue Mountain presents Klangfarbenmelodie, a concert full of colorful depictions and visual references through sound. Experience moods that have inspired composers and visual artists for centuries: calm and graceful, playful and silly, and strong and powerful. Selections include familiar works by Piazzolla, Mussorgsky, and Saint-Saëns; the evocative sounds of Philip Parker’s Beneath the Canopy; and the intensity of Marc Satterwhite’s Falconry 101, recently written for the ensemble.
Blue Mountain musicians are based in central North Carolina and are members of orchestras and university faculties across the state. This program features Michael Burns, bassoon; Carla Copeland-Burns, flute; Jim Douglass, piano; and John R. Beck, percussion.
Experience the sights before the sounds. Docent-led tours tailored to music lovers link art in the Museum to that day's chamber music performance. Make a reservation to join the 1:45 pm preconcert tour online or by calling the Box Office, (919) 715-5923, at least one week in advance.
