Arx Duo gave a gripping performance of Angelique’s work, Active Listening (2021), as part of the series Classical Tuesdays in Old Town Tacoma on April 14, 2022. The video is cued to start with Angelique’s comments about the work, and the piece starts around two minutes later.

It’s been an interesting last year, with everything from individually recorded online performances via click-track, performing with the Seattle Symphony to kick off their online virtual season, and even performing a summer season in front of a live audience with the Yakima Symphony.  While many of those recordings were only available to tune into for a limited time, here are some performances including Angelique that you can listen to at anytime:

Nonsequitur and the Wayward in Limbo Series present Angelique Poteat and Artemisia Winds. This program features performances and compositions by Angelique and other Artemisia members Josiah Boothby and Ryan Hare.

Seattle Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra performs Julius Eastman‘s Stay On It.  You can watch the video HERE!

Birthday Tribute performance for legendary clarinetist and composer William O. Smith.  You can watch it anytime HERE!

Emerald City Music gave an exciting premiere of Angelique’s new work, Her Story of a Soldier on September 13 and 14 in Seattle and Olympia.  Part of that premiere included this well-crafted video by Victor Caccese giving some insight to the process of the creation of the work and its performance, which you can watch below.  Special thanks to all of the outstanding performers: Kristin Lee, violin; Alexander Fiterstein, clarinet; John Rojak, trombone; Michael Thurber, double bass; Ian Rosenbaum, percussion; and the dancers, Michael O’Neal Jr. and Angel Moonyeka Alviar!

*Update*
You can hear a recording of the Olympia performance here!

The Seattle Symphony’s 2019-20 promises to be full of spectacle as the inaugural season of Music Director Thomas Dausgaard.  Included are two world premiere commissions of Poteat: her intense and vibrant Cello Concerto written for SSO Principal Cellist Efe Baltacıgil; and a season-long collaboration with teens from across King County for youth choir and orchestra that reflects upon the legacy of Beethoven for his 250th birth year.

If you weren’t able to catch any of the concerts this last October in person (or you did, and are hungry for seconds!) you can now watch Simple Measures at their October 25, 2015 performance on Youtube.

Enjoy!
