Two distinctive composers in Seattle, clarinetist Beth Fleenor and trumpeter Samantha Boshnack, showcase their works for large ensembles in one of the city’s finest concert rooms.
Alt-chamber orchestra B’shnorkestra recently released Go to Orange (Present Sounds Recordings). The group’s bold and undulating blend of horn lines, strings and percussion is conducted by Joshua Kohl, co-founder of the Degen erate Art Ensemble. The B’shnorkestra features Alex Guy, Paris Hurley, Jherek Bischoff, members of Jim Knapp and Eyvind Kang’s Scrape, members of the SRJO, bassist Tim Carey and drummer Greg Campbell.
Fleenor’s Workshop Ensemble (WE) presents exploratory scores grounded in Fleenor’s 20 Etudes for Blindfolded Musicians; WE also performs conduction, sonic meditation and Fleenor’s cross-stitched graphic scores. WE are Michele Khazak (voice), Kate Olson, Brian Bermudez, Chris Credit (reeds), Boshnack (trumpet), Naomi Siegel (trombone), Michael Owcharuk (piano), Paul Kemmish, Evan Flory-Barnes (bass), Campbell (percussion/horn), Adam Kozie (drums) and Fleenor (clarinet, voice, composition).
