On Jan. 31st, 2014 you can hear Keva’s world premiere of her new composition “Antarctic Sights” scored for piano, celesta, thunder tube (cracking glaciers) and penguin track and simultaneous DVD images. This is on Friday Night Concert Series at the Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Church, 8109 224th St. S.W., 98026 taking place at 8:00 p.m. (tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets or at the door.) This was inspired by the composer’s trip to West Antarctica one year ago after climbing glaciers and traveling in zodiacs to view the wildlife.

Next, Keva and her Cascade Symphony Orchestra assistant, Lisa Maria d’Acquila, will perform the Bartok Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion with the hailed Cascade Percussion Ensemble, known in every Puget Sound venue from universities, to orchestras, ballets, chorales, churches and on Classic King 98 FM. The percussion ensemble will perform some of their signature works.

Also on the program will be two clarinet works with the physician, David Frank who performs in the Northwest Symphony Orchestra and in the World Doctors Orchestra. They will play the delightful work of Bela Kovacs “Sholem-alekhem, rov Feidman” using a number of Hebrew melodies in the style of klezmer clarinetist, Giora Feidman and Astor Piazzolla’s “Oblivion,” an example of Nuevo tango from Argentina’s famous bandoneon performer and composer.

Overcome the Jan. “blahs” and put this exciting program on your calendar!
