June 15 | Portrait of an Artist 3 — Christina McGann, Violin
Christina McGann first visited Walla Walla in 2008, violin in hand. She recruited board members to WWCMF just by practicing with the window open. The sound of Bartok and Tchaikovsky floating out over Palouse and Catherine Streets was both an invitation and a call to action.
Christina returns to WWCMF this season with not just her violin, but also her viola. Her recruiting efforts are going into overdrive. Who can resist the siren song of a viola played well? Christina is joined by Whitman College Professor of Piano Tom Hicks, making his WWCMF debut.
WWCMF Founder & Artistic Director Timothy Christie moderates the conversation. Music by Schubert, Viextemps and Wieniawski.tickets
June 16 | Tasting Music 3 — Emerging Artist Quartet Fellows, masso
There is such a thing as the perfect chamber ensemble. It is balanced, unified in expression and awash in a vast array of musical colors. The string quartet? No siree! I am talking about the saxophone quartet. Only once before has the saxophone quartet made an appearance on the WWCMF stage. This is by design, an effort to mitigate jealousy among the practitioners of all the other instruments. But we must from time to time open the Pulp Fiction briefcase and gaze at the beauty within.masso, the Chicago-based saxophone quartet, make their WWCMF debut as the 2nd annual Emerging Artist Quartet Fellows. During their residency in Walla Walla, masso has been hard at work presenting community outreach performances in English and Spanish around the Walla Walla Valley.Their work in the community during the festival has been made possible by a generous grant from the Wildhorse Foundation.
Artists: masso: Sam Alvarez, tenor saxophone; Isaac Boone; soprano saxophone; Ila Gupta, baritone saxophone; India Wade, alto saxophonetickets
