INTERWOVEN: AMI Concert Series #3
CRS presents Vol. 3 of AMI, a new series of chamber concerts by the international ensemble INTERWOVEN in the award-winning White Room at CRS. The concert will take place on Saturday, October 29 at 7:30 pm and will feature Andy Weiyan Lin (erhu/viola) with Emilie-Anne Gendron (violin), Keiko Tokunaga (violin), Matthew Cohen (viola), and Nan-Cheng Chen (cello), performing Chen Yi’s Fiddle Suite for String Quartet as well as shorter selections by Dvorak, Mozart, and others.
Ami means “to knit” in Japanese and “friend” in many Romance languages. By bringing together musicians from different cultural backgrounds to play western and non-western music, traditional and contemporary, side by side, INTERWOVEN likewise hopes to introduce patrons of different backgrounds to the wonders and commonalities to be found in unfamiliar traditions, to inspire new friendships, and to strengthen our cross-cultural connections.
