Keys of Winter: A Pre-Festival Event
January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Artist: Ryan Marvel
Program: Before WinterFest begins, Off the Hook Arts recognizes local pianist and composer Ryan Marvel for an evening of exploration into the relationship between music and nature. Ryan will offer original works such as “Winter”, painting a landscape of vast and deep cold against the backdrop of a snowstorm. His popular “Rainfall” includes wind, raindrops, thunder and lightning…the storm all being created with the entire piano. It is a piece to be felt as much as it is to be heard.
Ryan will debut new music from his most recent release, “Winter II”, including a new setting of “Dona Nobis Pacem” that reflects the delicate balance of peace in this challenging time. Ryan will also be joined by local cellist Heidi Mausbach to offer the new original setting of Bach-Gounod’s “Ave Maria” for cello and piano.
And, finally, a new work will be premiered at this concert, composed especially for the occasion.
We hope you can join us for this unique and personal evening of musical storytelling!
