The Tufts University Department of Music and Tufts Composers present guest artists ANA Trio in concert on Sunday, October 14, 2012 at 3 p.m. in the Distler Performance Hall at the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center as part of the Sundays at Tufts – Community Concert Series.
ANA Trio is made up of soprano Angela Haas, cellist Natasha Farny, and pianist Anne Kissel Harper. The trio will perform a series of premieres and commissions, featuring pieces by Rob Deemer (“Snow”, with poetry by Sara Teasdale), Daron Arik Hagen (“Rapture and Regret”, with text from Virginia Woolf’s The Waves and Isak Dinesen’s Out of Africa; choreography by Helen Myers), Caroline Mallonée, and John McDonald’s new work, “Courbet’s Impromptu Farewells.”
At 2:30 p.m., a screening of Judith Wechsler’s film, Courbet: Dreaming the Modern, will precede the concert.
Haas, Farny, and Kissel together form the unique trio ANA, known for their energized and highly personal performance that combine the complex timbres of chamber music with the intimacy of the song recital. The trio currently serves on the music faculty at the State University of New York at Fredonia.
The Granoff Music Center is located at 20 Talbot Avenue on Tufts’ Medford/Somerville campus. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit as.tufts.edu/music/musiccenter or call the Granoff Music Center Box Office at 617.627.3679.
