45th Parallel Universe Orchestra
45th Parallel Universe founder Greg Ewer gathers his friends for a night of Scandinavian delights. The nyckelharpa and the Hardanger fiddle are two of Scandinavia's most iconic traditional instruments. This program will feature folk music for both of these bowed instruments as well as a pair of youthful masterpieces by two of Scandinavia's most beloved composers, Carl Nielsen's String Quartet No. 1 and Edvard Grieg's tuneful Sonata in F Major for Violin and Piano. Both works are inspired in part by Scandinavian folk music and are gems of the chamber music literature. Join them for a post-performance reception with the artists in the McTavish Room immediately following the performance! Main doors open at 6:30pm.
