Peninsula College announces the details of the 2013-2014 season for its popular Maier Hall Concert Series. Once again, the series will offer dynamic concerts focusing on classical chamber music, with an eclectic mix of instrumentation and styles by artists from both near and far.
The season will open Oct. 15 when Scottish-born classical guitarist Paul Galbraith performs. He is hailed as a brilliant innovator of the classical guitar who expands its technical limits in classical works and personal arrangements of folk music.
The popular Bottom Line Duo, which is being brought back by popular demand after a sold-out concert last season, will present both an afternoon and an evening concert Nov. 24. Graduates of Port Angeles High School and living in Seattle, Traci and Spenser Hoveskeland are definite favorites of Peninsula musical audiences.
The Port Angeles String Quartet is reconnecting to bring a special reunion concert to its many fans on Jan. 4, 2014. Back together are Christopher Taber, of Victoria, British Columbia; Heather Montgomery from Spokane; Kate Dean of Port Angeles; and Fred Thompson, from Portland, Ore. Look for brilliant masterworks by Haydn, Beethoven and Dvorak.
Trio Seraphim from Seattle will conclude the season on May 9, 2014, with clarinetist Jennifer Nelson, pianist Keith Ward and Spinto Soprano Christina Kowalski, who combine to share the dialogue, intimacy and interconnection of chamber music. The trio began in 2011 at the University of Puget Sound and has devoted itself to exploring the unique repertoire for piano, clarinet, and voice.
Subscriptions for the concert series are now on sale and can be purchased online at www.pencol.edu/cultural-events
Cost for the entire concert series is $50. Individual tickets to each concert are $15; students $5.
