Collaborations with Ursa Ensemble continue

Draw with me this Friday!

Collaboration in Concert: melody & line by Ursa Ensemble

13 November 2015 | 7:00 pmUrsa Ensemble
The Ursa Ensemble is a Chicago-based Chamber group that seeks to present uncommon music to audiences in unique ways, unconventional places, and with individual interpretations. Ursa Ensemble members are fiercely dedicated to making Western Art Music less intimidating, but still deeply moving, to the uninitiated listener. Their Collaboration in Concert events give listeners the opportunity to create a unique art piece under the tutelage of a professional painter, poet, author, photographer, or other artist, while gaining direction from the ensemble’s live music.

This program features works by German, Austrian, and American composers:
  • Horn Quintet by Mozart
  • Symphonie No. 9 by Haydn (arr by N. Jeffery)
  • Duo Concertante for Violin and Viola by Paul Chihara
  • Ruckus by Pierce Gradone
  • Ursa Dances by Joe Clark
This Collaboration in Concert utilizes artistic collaboration, unique spaces, and audience participation. Chicago painter Melanie Brown will guide the audience through a few basic points of her specialty, then engage with audience members as the ensemble performs to create an artwork based on the music itself.
