Artists at Albatross Reach is an enclave for some of the country’s finest musicians to explore new artistic territory, and play together in new ways.
Our final concert of the season is designed to share highlights from our season salons and showcase new works by our guest composers. This year’s projects include large group improvisations, an exploration of Slovakian folk songs, and hot-off-the-presses new compositions from Jason Charney and Juraj Kojs.
Each year, curators Jennifer Beattie (mezzo-soprano, Philadelphia) and Adam Marks (piano, NYC) select guests from different artistic practices and communities to come together over two retreats during the year. These week-long retreats provide room for artistic exploration outside of normal career constraints, and yield exciting and often surprising performances.
We present works and works-in-progress in salon concerts, welcoming guests into our retreat space for a fun and informal sharing. We find it crucial, however, to showcase the best of the year’s work in a formal concert at the lovely Gualala Arts Center. We are all professional performers and are thrilled to share some of our most creative work in this warm and inviting atmosphere.
Guests for the 2015-16 season included composers Juraj Kojs (Miami) and Jason Charney (Bowling Green), oboist Keve Wilson (NYC), and singer/songwriter/sculptor Conrad Freiburg (LA). These dynamic creators and interpreters are sure to inspire delight and wonder with a diverse and raucous program.
