On Sunday, Nov. 10, the Brasstown Concert Association (BCA) will present the Anon Ensemble, a brilliant new trio whose unique sound is thrilling audiences across the southeast.
“I have seldom encountered so impressive a new ensemble. Their approach to chamber music is fresh, modern and relevant; it expands the horizons of chamber music,” comments BCA president George Heilner.
The ensemble’s unique instrumentation (flute, viola, bassoon) lends itself to many different styles of music. With only one existing work for this combination prior to the group’s formation, Anon has created imaginative new arrangements which are both exciting and accessible. Based in Atlanta, Anon is committed to maintaining a broad world view and incorporating music from different cultures into their performance, championing the work of living composers and seeking out collaborations.
Anon’s members – Jessica Sherer, flute; Kelly King, viola; Katie Holland, bassoon – have performed with the Atlanta Symphony, New World Symphony, Orlando Philharmonic, Chicago Civic Orchestra, Sarah McLachlan, Transiberian Orchestra and many others. Anon served as the Ensemble in Residence at the 2013 Atlanta Chamber Music Festival.
The Anon Ensemble will perform on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 2:30 p.m. in Keith House on the campus of the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, N.C. No reservations are required; seating is by general admission. Individual tickets are $18 for adults, $10 for students and season tickets are $45 and $30, respectively and may be purchased at the door. Light refreshments are served at intermission.
