Season Guest: Sarasa Ensemble—All About My Mother

March 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Sarasa Ensemble returns to the Brattleboro Music Center Saturday, March 18.

The 7 p.m. performance, part of the BMC Season Guest Concert Series, is “All About My Mother.” Taking its title from Pedro Almodóvar’s 1999 film, this program offers a musical reflection on the many facets of motherhood, and the impact of her presence during life’s various celebrations, rituals and trials.

The program will include Matthew Locke’s Fantasy from Suite No. 5 in G minor from “Consort of Four Parts;” Dvorak’s “Songs my Mother Taught Me” from Gypsy Songs; Fanny Hensel Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 277; Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder (arr. for soprano and string quartet by Ivo Bauer); and Gershwin’s Lullaby for string quartet.

Performers will include Ute Gfrerer, soprano; Zenas Hsu and Amy Galluzzo, violins; Jason Fisher, viola; and Jennifer Morsches, cello.

The Sarasa Ensemble is a collective group of international instrumentalists and vocalists who perform classical music of outstanding quality, spanning the 17th to the 21st centuries, on both period and modern instruments, and bring this music to diverse communities.  Through the ensemble’s outreach program in adolescent detention facilities, it is dedicated to bridging cultural, aesthetic, and economic barriers and providing incarcerated teenagers with opportunities for growth, self-expression, and enrichment through music.
