Englewood Arts plans several concerts

Cellist Silver Ainomae will be back for January performance

Posted

Englewood Arts Presents featured its former cellist, Silver Ainomae, now principal cellist with the Minnesota Orchestra, in the “Beethoven Septet” on Dec. 18, a wonderful concert by a highly skilled septet, in a fairly full Hampden Hall.

Englewood Arts has an active community board, chaired by Jim Copenhaver, which presents a range of educational programs for its community, especially strong children’s educational offerings: Strings Attached, Englewood Arts Children’s Chorus, Mr. David’s Music Class, Sheridan Strings and the Clayton Elementary Theatre Troupe.

It also offers “Symphony Spotlight,” an assembly program in various metro area schools at a reasonable cost, performed by 13 musicians from the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. Programs includes brief instrument demonstrations, and a variety of musical genres. This ensemble appears across the metropolitan area.

We hope music lovers from our surrounding south area are aware of this fine organization and its chamber music programs and I thought I’d list the next concerts coming up at Hampden Hall, 1000 W. Hampden, in the Englewood Civic Center. (Tickets cost $30/$25/$10 — available online, englewoodarts.org, or at the door a half-hour prior to the concert.)

The remainder of the season includes:

● Jan. 22, 2022: “Happy Birthday Silver!” which will include: Brahms’ Piano Quartet in C Minor with Anne Ainomae, viola; tbd, violin; Silve Ainomae, cello and Joshua Sawicki, piano.

● Feb. 19, 2022: Viola Sonata No. 2, with Basil Vendrys, Colorado Symphony’s principal viola and Bill David, piano.

● March 19, 2022: Brahms Clarinet Sonata in E flat, with Jason Shafer, CSO principal clarinet, Yi Zhao, CSO assistant concertmaster; Margaret McDonald, piano. Also: Bruch and Katchiturian works.

● April 16, 2022: Silver Ensemble, Dohany: Serenade for String Trio.

● May 7, 2022: Schumann Piano Quintet with Yi Zhao and Dimitri Pogorelov, violins; Sofia Basile

Englewood Arts, which hopes to inspire a lifelong interest in music among students, offers the Strings Attached program, which teaches students to play a violin, cello, piano or guitar, with reasonably-priced lessons for beginning and continuing students. The ongoing program is based on the premise that learning to play a musical instrument exposes students to a variety of musical genres — and often has a beneficial effect on academic work, offering a self-esteem that extends beyond musical skills.

We are aware that each community we serve supports instrumental and choral ensembles which enrich the lives of both participants and families — and audiences — and we’d be happy to hear more about these activities, because we’re so convinced of their value for our children as they develop into creative adults ...

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues, public events frequently are canceled or rescheduled. Check with organizers before you go.
