Chicago Chamber Musicians Ensemble Live

Brass

Monday at 12:15 pm


Longtime principals of the Chicago Chamber Musicians continue the first Monday tradition of giving free lunchtime concerts in downtown Chicago. Trumpeters Charles Geyer and Barbara Butler will sit down with french horn player Gail Williams to play the bookends of the brass repertoire: arrangements of Renaissance and early Baroque pieces, as well as works by Chicago composer Stacy Garrop and Ithaca College composer Dana Wilson. Gail Williams will perform Wilson’s Musings for horn and piano, a work she commissioned and premiered in 2003.

Chicago Chamber Musicians Ensemble will be joined by pianist Rachael Kerr.
