Following a fantastic preview in Seattle on May 2, 2014, the Seattle Symphony will be streaming their live performance of the late-night chamber concert, Spring4Music After Hours at (le) Poisson Rouge on May 5, 2014 at 10pm EDT.  Click Here to read about the preview, as well as to find a link to the live stream, available Monday night.

Poteat’s newest work, Much Difference, commissioned by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra for their Sonic Evolution series, will be premiered by members of the orchestra (Zartouhi Dombourian-Eby, flute; Laura DeLuca, clarinet; Mikhail Shmidt, violin; David Sabee, cello; Michael Werner, percussion; and Kimberly Russ, piano) during their Spring4Music After Hours program at Le Poisson Rouge in New York on May 5, 2014 at 10pm.  The piece is inspired by the music of the Seattle-based group, Pearl Jam, as well as their strong history of activism.

Join conductor Anna Edwards and the Saratoga Orchestra for a performance of Poteat’s Spring Grove for chamber orchestra.  The concert will take place at South Whidbey High School on March 9, 2014 at 2:30pm.

A little about the piece from the composer:
Spring Grove is inspired by Cincinnati’s Spring Grove Cemetery, a historical landmark of the area.  With an elaborate and extensive set of mausoleums, obelisks, sculptured headstones, walking/jogging paths, arboretums, koi ponds, and much more, the cemetery doubles as a recreational park in addition to a place to honor the dead.  As someone who had not spent much time in cemeteries prior to Spring Grove, I found this to be somewhat disconcerting at the same time that I fell in love with the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful nature.

Performed by flutist Catherine Branch, violinist Katelyn Westergard, and pianist Albert Kim, A Perspective was  released on CD for the project Music of Difference on November 8, 2011.  To read more about the project, including how to purchase the album, visit Artist Series.  The album has also been released to iTunes.
