Seattle, WA 98118
Formed in 2012, Beth Fleenor’s Workshop Ensemble (WE) presents an ever growing number of exploratory scores based on an in-depth practice of mutual respect. Structured as a 12-piece modular ensemble, WE are inspired artists who create deeply moving music super charged with compositional and collective intent.
Grounded in learning and working Fleenor’s 20 Etudes for Blindfolded Musicians, WE also work in conduction, sonic meditation, and cross-stitched graphic scores. Through the use of blindfolds to heighten full body listening/awareness, WE cultivate focused intention, highlighting that intention as a respected member of the ensemble, in a practice of non-visual, non-verbal empathic communication. WE are Michele Khazak (voice), Kate Olson, Brian Bermudez, Chris Credit (reeds), Sam Boshnack (trumpet), Naomi Seigel (trombone), Michael Owcharuk (piano), Paul Kemmish, Evan Flory Barnes (bass), Greg Campbell (percussion/horn), Adam Kozie (drums), and Beth Fleenor (clarinet, voice, composition).
Crystal Beth (solo set) will open the evening.
