Beers & Beethoven
Friday September 20, 2019 at 6:00 pm - Tuesday September 24, 2019 at 9:00 pm
Looking for a great night?
What could be better, live music, mixed with beers and a chance to illustrate it all!?
We will open the evening with a chance to socialize and drink a local beer at ArtFarm (bar will be cash donations). The music will begin with a Beethoven selection performed by the Annapolis Chamber Players. After a brief intermission and a chance to grab another drink, attendees will have the chance to get out their sketchbooks and favorite materials or grab some basic materials from ArtFarm’s stash and get to sketching as the musicians begin their final improvisational piece.
This event is a collaboration between ArtFarm and The Annapolis Chamber Players to encourage all to experience the sounds of chamber music and incorporate some art of their own into the evening. No drawing experience is necessary – you can draw what you see or just be inspired by the sounds around you to doodle and have fun!
About the music for the evening:
The Annapolis Chamber Players present Beethoven’s most popular and beloved Septet Op. 20. Scored for three dark winds and a full array of strings, this work packs symphonic power in the form of a Classical divertimento. Complementing and contrasting this work is Terry Riley’s In C, a seminal Minimalist work of the 20th century. Full of repeating cells, insistent rhythms, and high energy, “In C” is endlessly colorful and every performance unique as performers play and react to an ever-changing musical canvas.
