November’s “12@Hotchkiss” Brings Piano, Bassoon and Clarinet for Free Concert
Location: Daniel Z. Gibson Center for the Arts
CHESTERTOWN, MD—On Friday, November 6, at 12:00 noon the Washington College 12@Hotchkiss series presents three members of the Grammy-nominated Inscape Chamber Orchestra in a free concert. Sponsored by the Department of Music, the performance will take place in Hotchkiss Recital Hall, Gibson Center for the Arts. Pianist Timothy McReynolds, clarinetist Evan Ross Solomon, and bassoonist Elizabeth Schurgin, will perform works by Saint-Saens, Misha Weinberg, and Mendelssohn, as well as a new piece composed by Washington College music professor John Leupold.
Inscape was founded in 2004 in Washington D.C. as an ensemble that redefines the traditional classic concert experience by playing pieces written across multiple genres and centuries. In addition to performing, pianistMcReynolds is a member of the Voice/Opera faculty at University of Maryland School of Music. Solomon, who serves as Executive Director of Inscape, earned his B.M. from The Peabody Conservatory of Music and has performed on clarinet in venues that include the Kennedy Center and the National Gallery of Art. In addition to her classical bassoon performances, Elizabeth Schurgin serves as the Executive Director of the D.C. Youth Orchestra Program. She holds a master’s degree in orchestral performance from the Manhattan School of Music.
Washington College professor John Leupold earned his Doctorate of Musical Arts from University of Maryland, College Park. His compositions have been performed by groups that include Inscape Orchestra, Left Bank Quartet and Capital Reeds. The Washington Post has described his work as “an imaginative exploration of instrumental timbres and ranges impelled by repetitive melodic figures.” He will release his first CD in early 2016.
