Fourth Sundays Chamber Music Series with WIRED: Claire Chase and Eric Lamb, Flutes
Claire Chase and Eric Lamb are the flute section of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), and have been playing together since a chance encounter in the summer of 1997 on Cape Cod convinced them that they had been separated at birth. Since then, Claire and Eric – often referred to as the duo “Wired” – have played hundreds of concerts together, and have cultivated a tight-knit virtuosity and emotional chemistry well-suited to the challenges of contemporary repertoire, premiering dozens of new duo works for the entire family of flutes. Equally at home with baroque, classical, romantic, and experimental repertoire as well as with new directions in electro-acoustic music and improvisation, they have performed as a duo throughout the US and Europe and given duo master classes recently at Northwestern University, Smith College and the Wiesbaden Academy of Music in Germany.
Second Sundays Classical Guitar Concert with Lynn McGrath
While studying Spanish as a foreign exchange student in Mexico, Lynn McGrath bought a guitar on a whim and asked a visiting professor (Alfredo Sanchez) for lessons, never imagining that years later she would be invited back as a professional musician. Since then, Lynn received her Master and Doctorate of Musical Arts Degree from USC and has studied with some of today’s most prominent guitarists including William Kanengiser and Pepe Romero. She has performed in many international festivals including the XIX Festival Internacional de Guitarra (Lima, Peru), the Guitar on the Mediterranean Festival (Italy), the Niksic Festival (Montenegro), the III Muestra de Guitarra Ajijic (Mexico) and the 2009 GFA Convention. In her unique rendition of Platero y yo by Castelnuovo-Tedesco, she has astounded audiences and received critical acclaim by performing the role of guitarist and narrator simultaneously. She serves as the Tour Director for the GFA and presently lives and teaches in Albuquerque, NM.
