Summermusic 2022 will bring together a diverse group of musicians from Iceland, Korea, Taiwan, Ukraine, Germany and the US to share their virtuosity and unique cultural perspectives with Central Pennsylvania community. The three Summermusic programs will explore the evolution of Serenade from the Age of Enlightenment to Belle Époque; the idea of an “ear worm” in music from Baroque era to present day; as well as delightful revelations offered by a familiar music reimagined in new instrumentation.
All three Summermusic concerts will take place in the historic St. Michael Lutheran Church on July 20th, 23rd and 26th.
Peter Sirotin, Violin; Michael Isaac Strauss, Viola; Sophie Shao, Cello
This program will explore the evolution of serenade from the Age of Enlightenment to Belle Époque. Award-winning cellist, Sophie Shao, violist Michael Strauss and violinist Peter Sirotin will perform serenades by Beethoven and Dohnanyi.
Tabea Debus, Recorder and Paul Morton, Theorbo and Guitar
German recorder virtuoso and winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, Tabea Debus, together with American lutenist, Paul Morton, will perform a program from her latest recording “Ode to An Earworm” which explores how tunes and dances wormed their
way into many aspects of music-making in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe – and, in traversing the centuries, contemporary compositions testify to the earworm’s secured place in modern life.
Formed at Yale University in 2015, the guitar duo LINÜ includes Icelandic guitarist/composer Gulli Bjornsson and South Korean guitarist JIJI. They will perform a unique program of classical music, arrangements and new compositions.
