When it comes to classical music, it is hard to remember each piece’s name, composer, movement, opus, etc. Maybe that’s why Olmos Chamber Ensemble came up with “Classical Hodgepodge”. At Unity Hall, the free film premiere of the Olmos Chamber Ensemble will take place on Sunday, December 5 at 3PM.
The Olmos Ensemble film features a recent concert and interviews with the performers. You’ll hear works from Jacques Ibert, Maurice Ravel, George Gershwin, and Claude Debussy with performances hailing straight from Texas. Proof of vaccination and ID are required to attend the program and face masks are encouraged. The doors will open at 2:30pm.
The film will be shown upstairs in Unity Hall’s main stage theatre on the large screen and broadcast through Unity Hall’s concert sound system.
Established in 1994, the Olmos Ensemble has created a global name for itself as a premier chamber music organization. From numerous world class performances, live broadcasts and recordings Olmos Ensemble has increasingly gained more recognition with each performance. From the few players of the San Antonio Symphony that founded this ensemble you can find leading musicians from across the United States.
Rachel Ferris as a soloist represents Barneveld with her upbringing. The native of Central NY holds the position of Principal Harp with the San Antonio Symphony. Her academic career started at Poland Central School and graduated from the Interlochen Arts Academy. Later she received a prestigious Bachelor’s Degree in Harp Performance from Oberlin College and Conservatory. The other notable names you might recognize in the concert are Mark Teplitsky, the principal flute of the San Antonio Symphony and Mathew Cohen a nationally recognized violist and graduate of Julliard’s Master of Music Program.
Thanks to the support of Unity Hall Membership and funds from the Decentralization Program, we can look forward to more performances from the Olmos Ensemble.
