      Traversing the Americas

      The Norfolk Chamber Consort continues its 51st season with "Traversing the Americas" which consists of works by composers from different parts of the American continents.

      The first half of the concert opens with "Cinco Canciones Populares Argentinas" by the Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera as performed by tenor Brian Nedvin and pianist Stephen Coxe. The program continues with "Canções típicas brasileiras" by the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, sung in Portuguese and various indigenous tongues by the soprano Elizabeth Hogue. She is accompanied by pianist Andrey Kasparov, NCC's Artistic Co-Director. Monica Rose Slater--soprano and prizewinner of the 2018 Lisa Relaford Coston Voice Competition--continues the Brazilian theme performing the aria "Diga em quantas" from the opera "Domitilla" by João Guilherme Ripper as well as the song "Dengues da mulata desinteressada" by Marlos Nobre. Slater is accompanied by Kasparov who also directs the Old Dominion University New Music Ensemble, consisting of flutist Hyorim Kim, clarinetist Timothy Martin, cellist Trinity Green and pianist Lawrence Halsey, as the group concludes the first half with Folk Suite No. 2 by the prominent African-American composer William Grant Still.

      After the intermission, pianist Oksana Lutsyshyn, NCC's Artistic Co-Director, commences the second half with "Suite Cubana" by the Mexican composer Manuel Ponce. Lutsyshyn then returns with Kasparov, with whom she forms the Invencia Piano Duo, performing piano duet selections by the American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk. The program concludes with the Virginia premiere of "Little Suite" (1939) by the American writer and composer Paul Bowles.

      A pre-concert discussion by Andrey Kasparov commences at 7:15 PM. A free reception follows the concert.
