Other Events of Interest 2019

The following events are not necessarily sponsored by the AGO Albuquerque Chapter, but often involve our members.  They are added here for your information, as we are notified about them.

Sunday, Sept. 1, 3:00pm Sarah Walder: Cello Trip IV.

St. Luke Lutheran Church, 9100 Menaul Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87112
St Luke Lutheran Church is starting a concert series in support of various community organizations.

Sarah Walder presents a concert for cello and cello with loop station. A loop station is a recording device that allows Sarah to record during the performance and create backup tracks. Essentially, she turns herself into a solo cello ensemble.

Sarah Walder 2019 pub photo-1Sarah will be performing her program, Cello Trip IV, which includes Bach’s contemplative fourth suite, the premiere of Cross Channel by Arizona composer Glenn Stallcop and her own compositions for cello with loop-station, inspired by medieval tunes and renaissance counterpoint with a bit of dramatic Baroque flair. The music is easy, fun, funky, sweet, scratchy, angry, bold, and spacious, with something for everybody to enjoy.

Sarah grew up in the deserts and mountains of Arizona. She studied cello and historical performance practice on viola da gamba at Oberlin Conservatory as well as Baroque cello and violone at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. Sarah plays a wide range of low and historic stringed instruments from periods ranging from the medieval era to the 21st century: vielle, violas da gamba, violone, Baroque cello, Classical cello, modern cello and modern cello with loop-station. She spends her time in both the Netherlands and in Flagstaff.
