Red Cedar Chamber Music world premiere: ‘Three Rivers’

  • Sun Jun 1 2014 - 7:00 pm • CSPS Hall
  • $15 advance | $18 door

Red Cedar Chamber Music’s final Main Stage Concert of the 2013-2014 season presents Red Cedar Trio members flutist Jan Boland, guitarist John Dowdall and cellist Carey Bostian performing the world premiere of Michael Gilbertson’s exciting new work Three Rivers, plus a passionate Hungarian Trio by Nathan Kolosko and Gilbertson’s
Circle the Wagons.

Michael’s new piece, Three Rivers, reaches out to Iowa towns that have witnessed the beauty and destructive power of the mighty Mississippi River and its tributaries, including our own Cedar River.

Michael Gilbertson, a 26-year-old Dubuque native who just completed his Masters degree in composition at Yale, is Red Cedar Chamber Music’s composer-in-residence.

Jan Boland & John Dowdall have performed together as the Boland-Dowdall Flute & Guitar Duo since 1979. They are the founders of the non-profit Red Cedar Chamber Music. Jan and John began collaborating while doing graduate work at the University of Iowa. Both had an avid interest in music history and early music performance practices. Eventually their researches and interests led them to a specialization of early 19th-century music on period instruments. Today, their music gives listeners equal doses of the antique and the avant garde; they annually commission and premiere new works by leading composers.
