2015 Music Performances

Coffee House Music Series

Friday, January 16:  The Wild Geese

The Wild Geese have all performed together for many years in the Charlottesville Symphony and/or taught at the University of Virginia. They have all been active musicians in orchestras and chamber music groups in central Virginia, and throughout the US and in Europe.
Each of The Wild Geese programs offers music from a specific time and place within the European Baroque tradition of the trio sonata repertoire. The current program, titled “Purcell’s London,” explores the soundscape of London during late 17th and early 18th centuries, and examines how its composers came to be so cosmopolitan in their approach to musical composition.
Members include Susan Black, formerly concertmaster of the Waynesboro Symphony and currently concertmaster of the Virginia Consort Orchestra. Nancy Garlick taught and performed clarinet with the University of Virginia for many years. Prior to that she played with the New Haven Symphony and taught at The College of Wooster. Content Sablinsky, keyboardist, also taught at UVA for many years, and was pianist with the New Orleans Symphony. A highly sought-after accompanist, she has appeared in many recitals and was recently invited to adjudicate in China. Lynanne Wilson, cellist, currently performs with the orchestras of Lynchburg, Shenandoah, the Oratorio Society and Virginia Consort, as well as many chamber music groups.

 7:30pm, $7. In the Rockfish Lounge.  Refreshments available.
