Last Saturday night at the Chapel Performance Space, Earshot Jazz Festival presented two distinctive composers in Seattle, clarinetist Beth Fleenor and trumpeter Samantha Boshnack, to showcase their works for large ensembles in one of the city’s finest concert rooms.
Fleenor’s Workshop Ensemble (WE) presents exploratory scores grounded in Fleenor’s 20 Etudes for Blindfolded Musicians; WE also performs conduction, sonic meditation and Fleenor’s cross-stitched graphic scores. WE are Michele Khazak (voice), Kate Olson, Brian Bermudez, Chris Credit (reeds), Boshnack (trumpet), Naomi Siegel (trombone), Michael Owcharuk (piano), Paul Kemmish, Evan Flory-Barnes (bass), Campbell (percussion/horn), Adam Kozie (drums) and Fleenor (clarinet, voice, composition).
