I received an interesting call last week from the folks at the Carolina Chamber Music Festival. They are doing an event in New Bern in conjunction with the Craven Arts Council called Debussy After Work Thursday, September 15. They will have three musicians (a harpist, a flutist and a viola player) playing the three movements of Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp. They then invited three visual artists to each create a painting based on one of the movements. I was pleased to be asked to be one of the artists. I chose the final movement to inspire my piece. Here's a link to a YouTube video of it:
Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp
I've already gotten started on the painting and am having great fun with it, but won't share it here yet - I want it to be a surprise at the concert. If you want to come join us on the 15th, here's a link to more info at the Carolina Chamber Music Festival website.
