March 30, 2012
The Montage Fine and Performing Arts Series at Loyola University New Orleans presents the chamber ensemble, Musaica, on Thursday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m. in Louis J. Roussel Performance Hall, located in the Communications/Music Complex on the corner of St. Charles Avenue and Calhoun Street. The event is free and open to the public, although a donation of $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors is recommended. A reception and opportunity to meet the musicians will immediately follow the performance.
The evening will feature the world premiere of "Suite in A Minor for Oboe Quartet" by award-winning composer and Xavier University New Orleans professor, Dan Shore. The program also includes Camille Saint-Saens’ seldom-heard “Caprice on Danish and Russian Airs” for flute, oboe, clarinet and piano, and Rebecca Clarke’s “Prelude, Allegro, and Pastorale” for viola and clarinet. As a grand finale, the group will perform Felix Mendelssohn’s “Octet for Strings.”
Musaica was founded in 2006 by a group of professional New Orleans musicians from the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and Loyola and Tulane universities. It is a nonprofit chamber ensemble whose mission is to promote and foster chamber music performance, encourage the composition of new music and increase the awareness and appreciation of chamber music.
