Women's Chamber ChorusCHORAL MUSIC
Women's Chamber Chorus
In 1983, a group of women faculty members at U-M founded the Women’s Chamber Chorus of Ann Arbor, a 30 voice women’s choir that has been singing and performing ever since. It has grown to include women of all ages and professions within the Ann Arbor community, and they now perform a wide variety of polyphonic choral music, ranging from African American spirituals, to German and French art songs, to American folk music. New singers are welcome at the beginning of each semester, in September and January. David Perample is the director, and Leslie Austin will provide piano accompaniment.

LSO Chamber QuintetCLASSICAL CLARINET
Clarinet Chamber Group
Members of the U-M Life Sciences Orchestra

Members of the U-M life sciences community and Life Sciences Orchestra, including undergraduates and medical students, will perform several pieces from the classical clarinet chamber music repertoire. The concert will open with Claude Debussy’s Premiere Rhapsodie for solo clarinet and piano by Sam Terman and Chester Chan. This piece juxtaposes contrasting lyricism and virtuosity to create Debussy’s signature impressionism. Sam Terman (clarinet), Chase Schuler and Liz Hong (violin), Lisa Yoon (viola) and Emily Bonem (cello) will then perform the Brahms Clarinet Quintet. The work of a seasoned master, the 1891 Quintet represents one of Brahms’ final and greatest chamber music achievements.

celloCELLO RECITAL
cellochan
Now seventeen years strong, cellochan is a cello music program that is as enriching as it is enjoyable. With its focus on well being and the arts, students experience an approach to the cello that can remove subtle mental blocks and contribute an overall sense of ease with the instrument, so essential to fine playing. In addition to music, in some of her classes Director Suzanne Smith teaches relaxation methods, beginning centering meditation and more. Smith has been teaching and performing the cello for almost thirty years, and her method draws upon her experiences as a serious Zen practitioner. This concert features solo and group works by her students.
