There will be a preview of the CROSSINGS, presented by WCM's Summer Music Festival CROSSINGS at The Cooperage at 7:30 pm Saturday July 12. The concert marks WCM's debut at the Cooperage, and offers music for wind instruments.
Flutist Judith Pearce, oboist Matt Sullivan, clarinetist Pavel Vinnitsky, hornist Adam Schommer and bassoonist Gina Cuffari will perform music from the 1700s through this century in a variety of ensemble combinations.
Dubbed "Atlantic Crossing," the program features folk-inspired music from the old and new worlds. Mixed in among the American and Klezmer tunes are Mozart's Serenade in C, some of Bartok's songs and melodies and Ligeti's Six Bagatelles.
WCM will head to Jeffersonville, NY the next day, at 3pm Sunday July 13 to perform at the Presbyterian Church, for the official opening of the 21st WCM Summer Festival in the Catskills. The two-week festival presents eight more events and runs through July 26.
