Classical 'Music on Caffeine' at Camp House

Classical 'Music on Caffeine' at Camp House

March 28th, 2013 by Staff Report in Chattnow Music

Local and visiting artists will explore how the fusion of coffee and music has inspired composers at 4 p.m. Friday, March 29, and 11 and 5 p.m. Saturday, March 30, at The Camp House, 1427 Williams St.

The program will feature J.S. Bach's little-known "Coffee Cantata"; selections from "Separation Anxiety," a 2012 composition by Covenant College alumnus Justin Johns; and effusive string works by classical masters. The performances will be less than an hour, followed by a Q&A and a chance to interact with the performers.

In lieu of an entrance fee, donations will be accepted at the door or online through a Kickstarter project, Music on Caffeine.

Project founder and violinist Evelyn Petcher leads the ensemble. Guest artist will be violinist Marie-Eve Poupart, a native of Quebec, Canada. Also performing will be local performers Hans Anderson (cello), Christa Dingman (flute), Robert Elder (viola), Darrin Hassevoort (tenor), Tim Hinck (harpsichord), Christopher Oglesby (baritone/bass) and Sara Snider Schone (mezzo-soprano).

Petcher, a Chattanooga native now teaching and performing in the Baltimore area, received a 2012 Career Grant from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University to start this project.
