Third Chair Chamber Players' much-anticipated 2009-10 season brochure is in the mail! Here's a sneak preview of the upcoming concerts at NET's Studio One…

SEPTEMBER 11 & 13 “Strings and Friends”

Graham House

Graham House

The 14th season begins with an evening of lush Romantic quintets. TCCP strings Donna Carnes, Clark Potter and Tracy Sands, along with violinist Kim Salistean and Graham House on horn, perform the beautiful Horn Quintet by Edwin York Bowen, an English composer whose works are gaining in popularity. Pianist Sheri Ericksen joins the strings to perform Antonin Dvorak's Quintet in A major, considered by many one of the great piano quintets. A Divertimento for violin, cello and high horn by Franz Joseph Haydn rounds out the program.

NOVEMBER 6 & 8 “All-American Trios”

Christian Ellenwood

Christian Ellenwood

A celebration of living American composers, including Lincoln native Christian Ellenwood. TCCP's clarinet-cello-piano trio—Ed Love, Tracy Sands and Sheri Ericksen—perform jazz-oriented pieces by Ellenwood and "Ombres de Novembre" by Rick Sowash. Guest trumpeter Deb Bouffard, violinist Donna Carnes and pianist Sheri Ericksen explore both mellow sonorities and strong rhythms in Eric Ewazen's trio. Also on the bill is a work for trumpet, clarinet and piano by Normand Pepin.

JANUARY 22 & 24 “Enchanted Harp”

Kathleen Wychulis

Kathleen Wychulis

A variety of chamber works for harp from around the globe. Harpist Katie Wychulis introduces us to the music of Australian composer Dulcie Holland, Frenchman Jacques Bondon, Netherlands-born Henri Zagwijn, and Englishman (with strong Irish influence) Arnold Bax. Performing with Katie are Becky Van de Bogart, flute; Ed Love, clarinet; Clark Potter, viola; and Sheri Ericksen, piano.

APRIL 16 & 18 • “Romantic Winds”

Justin Rubin

Justin Rubin

A veritable pot au feu of wind music. We dug down deep into the woodwind quintet repertoire and found a gem by the great composer Ottorino Respighi, best known for such wonderful orchestral works as Pines of Rome and Fountains of Rome. Our bassoonist, Jeff Campell, pointed us to a flute-bassoon-piano trio by jazz legend Chick Corea, and to a set of Bagatelles for bassoon and marimba by Justin Rubin, a colleague of his at the University of Minnesota–Duluth. And no season is complete without a work by our in-house favorite, Tristan Fuentes.
