Yuri Funahashi SYSTEM

The Maine Mountain Chamber Music fall concert “Music from Colby,” sponsored by ArtsFarmington, will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 1, in Nordica Auditorium inside Merrill Hall on campus at the University of Maine at Farmington.

The performance will be a repeat presentation of the concert given the night before at Colby College in Waterville in celebration of the opening of Colby’s new arts center, the Gordon Center for Creative and Performing Arts.

For this special concert MMCM founders Yuri Funahashi (piano) and Laurie Kennedy (viola) will be joined by eight outstanding musicians from the Colby College Music Department, including Jinwook Park (violin), Hyunji Kwon (cello), Nicole Rabata (flute), Michael Albert (oboe), Brendon Wilkins (clarinet), John Boden (French horn), José Martinez (composer and percussion), and Néviton Barros (conductor). The eclectic program will feature two new works: Sobres uno mismo (About Oneself), a compelling work for solo flute and chamber ensemble in its North American premiere by Colby composer José Martinez; and the hauntingly beautiful Visions in Glimpse for oboe, cello and percussion by Shane Scott Cook in its world premiere. The finale of the program is the blockbuster Sextet in C Major by Erno Dohnányi.

The suggested general admission price is $20, but everyone is welcome, pay more if you can, less if you can’t – no one will be turned away. Concerts sponsored by ArtsFarmington are free for UMF students and for those 18 and under. Nordica Auditorium is located inside Merrill Hall on the campus of the University of Maine at Farmington at 224 Main St., Farmington.
