Sound of Nature Sound of Art

The Lincoln City Cultural Center presents the fourth annual collaboration of art, music and ecology, called Sound of Nature Sound of Art — a celebration of Cascade Head Scenic Research Area and the rare natural beauty of the Oregon Coast. Three Centuries Ensemble will be performing works inspired by nature and the music, in turn, will inspire invited artists, who will respond to both the beauty of Cascade Head and the music itself, while the audience looks on. Co-sponsored by the Studios to Schools project, U.S. Bank, and the members of the Lincoln City Cultural Center.

The Three Centuries Ensemble is comprised of Oregon Symphony musicians Jonathan Dubay (violin), Todd Kuhns (clarinet) and Ken Finch (cello), with pianist Susan DeWitt Smith. Three Centuries Ensemble has been performing chamber music in Oregon for twenty years, bringing great music and great ideas to diverse audiences ranging from the Abbey Bach Festival to the Bridgeport Brew Pub Music On Tap series. Their programs often demonstrate connections that span the centuries. In this case, the ensemble takes a close look at chamber music that evokes scenes of nature. The T. C. E. initiated the Sound of Nature Sound of Art concerts at the Lincoln City Cultural Center in 2014 and returns this year to present another program of chamber music inspiring the creation of art. Other presenters include Lewis and Clark College, Marylhurst University, Reed College, and the Oregon Coast Chamber Music Series.

The Three Centuries Ensemble will perform Antonin Dvorak’s Silent Woods for cello and piano, Darius Milhaud’s Suite for violin, clarinet, and piano, Kenji Bunch’s Magic Hour for violin, cello and piano, Antonio Vivaldi’s Summer from The Four Seasons arranged for violin, cello and piano, and Bryan Johanson’s The Wave Sings Because it is Moving for violin, clarinet, cello and piano.
