Clarinetist, Carrie Ravenstem Performs Jenni Brandon’s “Starry Night”

November 2, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Free

Clarinetist, Carrie Ravenstem performs Jenni Brandon’s “Starry Night”. The performance is on Friday, November 2, 2018, 12:00 PM at the New Albany Public Library, 180 West Spring Street, New Albany , Indiana.  This a Kentuckiana Association of Musicians And Singers, Inc. free lunchtime concert.

Carrie Ravenstem works as a freelance musician and teacher in the Louisville/southern Indiana area. She has performed with several orchestras and ensembles. They include; the Louisville Orchestra, Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra, Keep Louisville Symphonic, Louisville Chamber Winds, Orchestra Enigmatic, Muncie Symphony Orchestra, Carmel Symphony Orchestra, Marion Philharmonic and Classical Symphony of Chicago.  Her focus introduces audiences to living composers. Carrie also focuses on contributing to the future of music by fostering the appreciation of new music.

Jenni’s “Starry Night” is a three-movement work for solo B-flat clarinet that tells of the night skies and our fascination with what lies in them. Using poetry and texts from Gerard Manley Hopkins, John Keats, and Van Gogh (whose painting is also the inspiration for the title of this work), these movements tell of the stars as “fire-folk” and how the sight of stars can make us dream. This work was written for Virginia Costa Figueiredo, premiered in February 2013, and receives its premiere recording on her CD.
