St. Patrick's Day falls on Monday this year, but you can still get your green beer and corned beef on "St. Practice Day" -- aka Saturday, March 15. The Queen Mary is hosting Shamrock 'N' Roll, a night of live music, pub games, Irish food, and of course, the ubiquitous green beer. Bands include The Mansfield Band (featuring Irish singer Anita Mansfield and Emmy-winning bass player Damon Stout), The MVPs (who have appeared with acts such as Santana, Ray Charles and more), Green Ashes, Craic Haus (an Irish rockabilly band), Dublin Public and Them Novus. And if you're worried about sacrificing basketball for partying, don't be. They'll be showing the conference tournament championship games on the ship. Full schedule is below. Learn More
January's program opens with the gently satirical and melancholy Flute Sonata of Francis Poulenc. Ravel's Sonata for Violin and Cello follows, highlighting two of our guest musicians: violinist Chee Yun and cellist Alisa Weilerstein. Both musicians join the ensemble for the first time in January though their respective careers have included performances with orchestras and symphonys worldwide.
The program concludes with Louis Vierne's Opus 42 Quintet for Piano & Strings. Vierne is primarily known as an organist and composer of works for that instrument, but the composition for string quintet that will be performed in January (by violinists Chee Yun and Agnes Gottwschewski, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, pianist Anne Epperson and violist Scott Lee) is a dark, quasi-autobiographical work, fully romantic in expression. It is the anchor of the program and a perfect example of a Camerata Pacifica trademark: the discovery and presentation of unknown music that should be known!
Guest Artists: Chee-Yun (violin), Alisa Weilerstein (cello), Anne Epperson (piano) and Scott Lee (viola)
