The Chamber Music Series Presents Eric Kritz & Friends,

Sunday, January 19, 2020 at 4 pm.

On January 19, the Chamber Music Series at Gualala Arts will feature a special ensemble of talented, seasoned, and much-loved area musicians. The performance, dubbed Eric Kritz & Friends, will fill Coleman Hall at Gualala Arts with musical selections perfectly suited to their talents. Included will be well-known clarinet works by Mozart, Bernstein, and Milhaud, as well as a lesser-known but brilliant work by 20th-century composer Robert Muczynski. In addition, a brand new work by Jeff Ives composed especially for this concert will be premiered.

Eric Kritz has been recognized for his deft talents on the clarinet, and also for his ability to bring together a group of talented musicians for a special performance. Pianist Carolyn Steinbuck, a dynamic soloist and frequent chamber music performer, is well known for her virtuosic playing and long teaching career. She’s been described as “a cultural force to be reckoned with.” Violinist Tammie Dyer (who holds multiple degrees including a Doctorate of Musical Arts from Stony Brook University,) enjoys playing a variety of musical styles and is passionate about sharing the transformative experience of live music. Cellist Marcia Sloane has had an eventful career as a chamber and orchestral player (as well as a composer/arranger) working in collaboration with musicians, dancers, poets, visual artists, actors, and storytellers. Violinist Marcia Lotter, who lives on the south coast, has been an associate concertmaster of the Mendocino Music Festival and co-hosts a weekly classical music program on KZYX. Jeff Ives studied violin at Connecticut’s Hartt School of Music, at the New England Conservatory and earned a BA in Music and English Literature from Tufts University. He plays violin, viola, flute and saxophone.
