Concert Mosaic: New Music & Art by Northwest Women

Concert Mosaic: New Music & Art by Northwest Women

Concert Mosaic, a bold and multi-faceted program of chamber music premieres and visual art displays by Northwest women composers and artists is scheduled for Feb.15, 2020, at Lincoln Recital Hall, Portland State University. Presented by Cascadia Composers, featured performers include the Delgani String Quartet with special guests on horn, clarinet, percussion and vocals.
Each composer on the program was inspired to write their musical piece based on a Northwest artist's work:
Elizabeth Blachly-Dyson's From Shadow to Sun was inspired by the paintings and sculpture of Corvallis artist Susan Johnson.
Lisa Ann Marsh wrote Mountains in the Rain, Sun Under Clouds, a song cycle drawn from the poems of Deborah Buchanan. Ellen Blazich created the cyanotype dyed cloth prints to highlight the sentiments of the songs.
Lisa Neher's Look Within was sparked by a new abstract painting by Portland artist Paulette Insall.
Stacey Philipps created her song cycle, Looking at a Blackbird, with text from Wallace Stevens' famous poem and in collaboration with nature photographer Karen Drain.
The paintings of Whidbey Island artist, Teresa Saia, were the impetus for Christina Rusnak's work, Dusk.
Dawn Sonntag crafted her piece, Piecitos de Ninos, as a setting of the poem by Gabriela Mistral and as an accompaniment to the sculptures of Ildiko Kalapacs.
Linda Woody's Body of Work was written with the paintings of Oregon City artist, Cindy Geffel, in mind.
The artists' works will be displayed on stage or projected on screen during the concert, and art will be on display in the hall outside the performance area. Tickets are available at the door and at concertmosaic.brownpaper…. General $20; Cascadia members and seniors $10; students $5; under 12, free; Arts Card holders 2/$20. Concert Mosaic is funded in part by a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council.
