MATT DANE AND CHRISTINA JENNINGS
Sunday, July 27 at 4 p.m. — ROCHESTER — On Sunday, July 27 at 4 p.m. the Rochester Chamber Music Society (RCMS) will present a flute, viola, and piano concert at the Rochester Federated Church. The afternoon program will include a flute and piano sonata by Donizetti and Trio for Flute, Viola, and Piano by Martinu as well as several works by Daniel Kellogg. The summer series has been a huge success with packed events in celebration of the RCMS’ twentieth season in Rochester.
Flutist Christina Jennings is praised for virtuoso technique, rich tone, and command of a wide range of literature featuring works from Bach to Zwilich. The Houston Press declared: “Jennings has got what it takes: a distinctive voice, charisma, and a pyrotechnic style that works magic on the ears.” Ms. Jennings enjoys a musical career made up of diverse performing and recording, collaborations with living composers, and work guiding young musicians. Matthew Dane is a member of the Boulder Piano Quartet, serves as Principal Violist of
the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra in Houston, and is on the faculty at both the
Metropolitan State College in Denver and the University of Colorado. Chamber music
festival appearances include OK Mozart (Portland, Maine), Chamber Music Quad Cities
(Iowa), and Tanglewood. In summers Dane performs in the Colorado Music Festival, and in 2008 will teach at the Texas Music Festival and Rocky Ridge Music Center. His
doctoral document, which examines the teaching influence of Karen Tuttle, enjoys wide
circulation among amateur and professional violists nationwide. Dane is editor of the
Journal of the American Viola Society.
