New Chamber Music at the Calumet Art Center
In August 2010 I had a conversation with artist Ed Gray, executive director of the Calumet Art Center in Calumet Michigan in the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula (surrounded by Lake Superior). He showed me the beautiful new performing space that the CAC was looking forward to using to present performing arts events and workshops for the people of the Keweenaw. We talked about the many benefits of such events to everyone involved and to the community. And the planning began to try to present the first new music concert (hopefully the first of many) in August of 2011.
On August 11, 2011, a remarkable group of generous musicians presented the music of six composers (all of whom were present at the concert) in a wonderfully varied program of recent music. An audience of about 100 enthusiastic listeners purchased tickets and attended that concert. And the CAC board has invited me to organize another event for August of 2012. Concert date is August 3.
