Trio Virado for Pro Musica - February 21, 2019
St Peter the Apostle Catholic Church
812 S Pearl St. Joplin, Missouri
7:00 PM
International sensations Amy Porter (flute), João Luiz (guitar), and Juan-Miguel Hernandez (viola), together known as TRIO VIRADO, are taking the role of instrumental chamber music to new heights. Their repertoire breaks boundaries between cultures and genres: from 21st-century premieres to Latin tangos to works from the classical canon arranged by João Luiz and others. A unique assemblage of veteran performers, TRIO VIRADO brings excitement to live concerts and are equally impressive in educational settings at schools and universities.

Each of the TRIO VIRADO musicians has appeared in major classical music venues throughout the world. TRIO VIRADO’s long-awaited debut album, “Mangabeira,” was released in October 2015 and includes premieres by Paquito D’Rivera, João Luiz, Frederic Hand, and Sergio Assad.

The appearance of Trio Virado is sponsored, in part, by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.

Stravinsky By The Numbers - March 17, 2019
Britton Recital Hall
University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance
4:00 pm
Igor Stravinsky is celebrated as one of the most influential composers of all time and a trio of his ballets (Firebird, Petrouchka, Rite of Spring) changed the course of music in the twentieth century. Between these musical monuments, he tinkered with his compositional process in delightfully experimental chamber works. Professor of bassoon Jeffrey Lyman and 20 of his SMTD colleagues offer a program of these miniature masterpieces for voices and instruments from one, two, four, up to eight players. From early works like the Three Pieces for Clarinet and the Three Pieces for String Quartet through his very last composition The Owl & the Pussycat, you'll get a virtual behind-the-scenes tour of Stravinsky's creative process.

Performers include Danielle Belen and Matt Albert, violin; Joachim Angster, viola; Leo Singer, cello; Amy I-Lin Cheng, Christian Mattias Mecca, Kathryn Goodson, piano; Amy Porter, flute; William King, Garret Jones, Elisha Willinger, clarinet; Jeffrey Lyman, Maddy Wildman, bassoon; Amanda Ross, Michelle Riechers, trumpet; David Jackson, Christopher Hernacki, trombone; Carmen Pelton, Elise Eden, soprano; Freda Herseth, contralto; and Stephen West, baritone.

Optimal Airflow Dynamics for Producing High Quality Flute Tone: A study of air flow, direction, speed, volume, and pressure from the diaphragm to the lips using objective measures will aid to understand the ideal state

This four-day workshop presents an opportunity for adult flute players to participate in masterclasses and join in-depth discussions about the study of flute tone, breathing, and body awareness both in flute practice and in performance.

This year, this workshop will unveil a series of research studies especially formatted for music students to study the anatomy and airflow dynamics that create an optimal tone on a woodwind instrument.

In addition, several leading flute manufacturers will exhibit their instruments for attendees to view, test, and purchase.
