Carson City Symphony Association Announces
Project Euterpe Episode 12
“Far From Me” – Carson Chamber Singers
Carson City Symphony Association announces release of Project Euterpe (you-TER-pee) Episode 12, “Far From Me.” It features the Carson Chamber Singers, an affiliate of the Carson City Symphony, performing works by Claudio Monteverdi and Elaine Hagenberg, conducted by Richard “Ricky” Hutton.
Hutton said, “I selected these pieces to be performed as a set that engages with the experience of choral musicians (and many others) during the pandemic. The text of Monteverdi’s ‘Longe da te, cor mio’ from his fourth book of Italian madrigals speaks of loved ones separated by distance yearning to be reunited. Brian Newhouse’s two texts, set by Elaine Hagenberg as companion pieces, also speak to the feelings of isolation and longing for connection. Hagenberg dedicates ‘Songs from Silence’ to ‘the choral community in hope of healing during times of silence and distance.’”
The video can be viewed on YouTube.com by searching for Carson City Symphony, or by linking from Facebook.com/CarsonCitySymphony or the Symphony’s website CCSymphony.com. Several other videos by Carson City Symphony musicians are also available for viewing on the Symphony’s YouTube channel.
This video is dedicated to the memory of Lucy W. Bouldin, a member of the Carson Chamber Singers, who passed away on Feb. 9, 2021.
The Carson City Symphony and its associated ensembles have been entertaining people in the Carson City area since 1984. Because they can’t perform in person, they are presenting Project Euterpe, a series of episodes that highlight the talents of Symphony musicians, ensembles, and guest artists.
Carson City Symphony Association performances are supported by public funding from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Carson City Cultural Commission, and private donations. For more information, see CCSymphony.com or call 775-883-4154.
