Monday Night Music presents Washington’s Camerata

McDaniel College’s Monday Night Music series will present Washington’s Camerata on Monday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m.  The concert will take place in McDaniel Lounge.

Washington's Camerata, established in 2009, is a period instrument ensemble dedicated to the music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Founding flutists Kelly Kazik and Sarah McIver achieve innovative programming through the ensemble’s unique instrumentation to bring charming and rarely heard music back to life.  Kelly and Sarah play on modern copies of baroque flute (tranverse flute) and recorder, all tuned at A415.  Also performing are Bozena Jedrzejczak Brown, harpsichord, and McDaniel music faculty Tim Anderson, cello, and Nicholas Currie, violin.

The concert will feature Chamber Concerto in A minor, RV. 108 by Antonio Vivaldi, Sonata in E-flat Major, No. 348 by Johann Joachim Quantz, Quartetto in C Major, Op. 18 by Johann Christian Bach, and Concerto Comique in B-flat Major, Op. 8, No. 1 by Michel Corrette.

Dr. Sarah Eckman McIver attained her Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a focus on modern works by flutist-composers.  While pursuing a Master of Music degree at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England, she wrote a thesis on electro-acoustic music for flute and computers and at the same time began studying baroque flute with Lisa Beznosiuk.  Her modern flute teachers include Timothy Hutchins, Peter Lloyd, and Dr. William Montgomery.  Sarah has attended contemporary music workshops in Poland and France, and enjoyed a chilly winter residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada. In 2003, Sarah returned home to the Washington DC area to serve as flute section leader with the US Army Field Band, whose mission is to tour the country for over a hundred nights a year.

Dr. Kelly Kazik is a flutist and early music specialist in the Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. area.  She holds a Bachelor's of Music in Flute Performance from the Conservatory of Music at Lawrence University and a Master of Music from the University of North Texas, where she served as Early Music Teaching Assistant.  She was regularly a featured soloist with the group, Les Petits Violons, and is the featured recorder player on the "Lully Project," which is currently housed in the University of North Texas Music Libraries.  Kelly also holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Maryland at College Park where her studies lead her from 18th century French music to 20th century French music.  She currently lectures and gives masterclasses around the country on the music of Rivier, Bozza, and Francaix.  Kelly also serves as organist and choir director for St. Peter's Church and maintains an active flute studio.

Canadian-born violinist Nicholas Currie is the assistant concertmaster of Concert Artists of Baltimore, assistant concertmaster of the Annapolis Symphony, and concertmaster of the Mid-Atlantic Symphony.  Mr. Currie is a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, where he studied with the late Berl Senofsky.  Nicholas also studied under the late Bernard Eichen, member of the Beaux Arts Quartet, at Illinois State University.

Cellist Tim Anderson received a B.A. in Music Performance from the University of South Florida and studied at the graduate level at Peabody Conservatory and Syracuse University.  He has performed in the Baltimore Opera, Delaware, Harrisburg, Syracuse, and Mexico City orchestras, among others.  Other performances include music festivals in Los Angeles, Cleveland, Charleston, Vancouver, B.C., Quebec, and Graz, Austria.  In a teaching capacity, Tim has been on the faculty of UMBC, and is presently cello instructor at McDaniel College and Harford Community College.  He is music director of the Concord Ensemble, which appeared on the "Today Show" and in the movie "The Visiting".  Tim is a member of the Lancaster Symphony and the Live Wire String Quartet.
