      Con Brio Presents: Music of Women Performed by Women
      An Equinox Celebration of Chamber Music for
      Voice, Flute, Oboe, Violin, Piano, and String Quartet

      The Con Brio Chamber Series celebrates the fall equinox with a pair of unique concerts of music composed by women and performed by women.

      “Too often in chamber music, we hear too little of the outstanding volume of work that women have produced,” said Con Brio director Sally Schlichting. “Though just a sampling, this program showcases some jewels. From the classical structures of Fanny Mendelssohn, who by some accounts was more talented than her brother Felix, to the meditative soundscapes of Ingrid Stolzel, a composer of this generation, these selections highlight the talent women have firmly held in a field unjustly dominated by men.” Paying tribute to women composers, the program features performances entirely by local women musicians.

      The concerts highlight works for voice, flute, oboe, violin, piano, and string quartet, including:

      • Amy Beach – Sonata for Violin and Piano with Lindsay Clark, violin, and Mei Xue, piano,

      • Ingrid Stolzel – The Gorgeous Nothings on poetry by Emily Dickinson with Sara Radke Brown, soprano; Sally Schlichting, flute; Jetta Whittaker, oboe; and Mei Xue, piano,

      • Fanny Hensel Mendelssohn – Quartet in E-flat with Lisa Ibias and Lindsay Clark, violins; Stephanie McDermott, viola; and Meghan Johnson cello,

      • Madeleine Dring – Trio with Sally Schlichting, flute; Jetta Whittaker, oboe; and Nancy Nash, piano, and,

      • Lori Laitman – Love Poems of Marichiko with Sara Radke Brown, soprano, and Meghan Johnson, cello.

      Performances will be held Saturday, September 21, at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, September 22, at 3 pm, both at Northern Light United Church.

      “These concerts of exquisite works, both old and new, will delight all lovers of chamber music. Come and celebrate the arrival of fall with the sounds of strings, winds, and voice brought to you by women,” said Schlichting. Admission is pay-as-you-can: donations are welcome to help cover costs.

      The Con Brio Chamber Series was formed by Sally Schlichting three years ago to perform intimate settings of chamber works in Alaska’s capital city. For more information, contact Sally at 957-3488.
