Happy Days for String Trio – Virtual World Premiere
December 8, 2020
Augustana Arts presents the world premiere performance of Happy Days for String Trio by renowned composer Emma Lou Diemer on December 8th, 2020 at 7pm.
Composer Emma Lou Diemer is an American composer, best known for her works for organ and choir. Dedicatee Philip Ficsor has released two recordings with Diemer at the keyboard and describes Happy Days as “breath-taking in its beauty and emotional power. It’s a light-hearted series of movements belie their compositional sophistication.” Ms. Diemer will share her insights about each, and will join us for the premier via Zoom from her home in Santa Barbara, California! Join us on Colorado Gives Day — Tuesday, December 8 at 7pm — for Happy Days featuring Stratus musicians Philip Ficsor, Carrie Beeder, and William Hinkie.
This event is presented in collaboration with Groupmuse, a virtual performance platform. The livestream program will begin at 7 PM with the performance starting at 7:15. The full program will also feature Dvorak’s Terzetto after intermission and Q&A with the composer. All donations will directly benefit Augustana Arts in recognition of Colorado Gives Day. Preregistration through Groupmuse is required and the entry cost to Groupmuse is $3. Donations during and after the performance in support of all our artists and the work of Augustana Arts are appreciated.
