Brave New Works Press Releases



Ann Arbor, MI - March 2, 2004

An ensemble of five Brave New Works musicians will perform at 4 pm April 4th in the Kerrytown Concerthouse located at 415 North Fourth Avenue in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Sunday concert is being called informally, "the 4-4-04 @ 4:00." Tickets $10-25 ($5 students) are available at the door or may be reserved by calling 734-769-2999.

Brave New Works, which exclusively plays new music, has recently performed in Portland, Oregon; Tacoma, Washington; and Bowling Green, Ohio; and is preparing for a special project in Boston. Artistic Director Chris Kim said, "We are excited about the many invitations we are receiving to perform around the country, but we love to perform in Ann Arbor, where the group enjoyed its first successes and where many of its members still reside."

Soprano Jennifer Goltz, flutist Emily Perryman, clarinetist Celia Eidex, cellist Katri Ervamaa, and harpist Amy Ley will perform the music of Mark Kilstofte, David Liptak, Forrest Pierce, Matt Thommassini, Kaija Saariaho, Bright Sheng, and Charles Rochester Young. "We are thrilled to perform at Kerrytown Concerthouse again after many engagements around the country," flutist Perryman said.

The musicians of Brave New Works, founded at the University of Michigan, have performed in many countries, including France, China, Italy, Japan, Russia, Scotland, and Spain. Brave New Works has commissioned and premiered numerous works for its unique instrumentation of string quartet, piano, flute, harp, clarinet, and soprano.

While gaining more visibility outside of Michigan, Brave New Works continues to garner support from local new music enthusiasts as well. Dale Franz, who was inspired to serve on the group's board of directors, says, "Listening to contemporary classical music, I have on occasion been absolutely transported, as though I went from a wind-up Victrola to living color, full-spectrum sound, and flat panel digital all at once. And a Brave New Works performance, being live and immediate, is actually superior to electronic media." Brave New Works and Kerrytown Concerthouse invite you to "be transported" on 4-4-04 @ 4:00.
