Klavihorn Countdown: ~ 2 weeks! Join us April 1 at 5pm for the world premiere of our newly restored Klavihorn at the Project Room. Members of the Fisher Ensemble (percussion master Dean Moore and the incomparable Greg Bagley) will be playing along with our guest Klavihornier for the evening, Ben Blankenship.
Come for the Klavihorn, but stay for an operatic experience: local Seattle countertenor José Luis Muñoz will be performing as part of the event as well! We’re thrilled to have him on board for this event, since he’s got an excellent voice! You may have seen him in works around town, such as the recent performance of Francesca Caccini’s La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall’Isola d’Alcina, under the direction of Stephen Stubbs at Cornish. He’s also performed with a variety of organizations, including: Washburn Symphony (Topeka), San Francisco Baroque Opera, First Congregational Church Music Series (Berkeley), Mission Cultural Center (San Francisco), Theater Artaud (San Francisco), Foro Cultural Coyoacanense Hugo Argüelles (Mexico City), the Ludinghaüsen Summer Art Festival (Germany). If you’ve never experienced the sound of a countertenor before, you should definitely come out and have a listen! He’ll be singing an aria for the Fisher Ensemble’s upcoming independent film with operatic score by Garrett Fisher entitled Magda G.
This is a free event and feel free to join us for a post-Klavihorn reception. Just like the Fisher Ensemble on Facebook as your RSVP.
There’s a ton of other great events going on as part of the Project Room’s Beginning series, so be sure to check them out as well.
