Summers in the Pacific Northwest are pretty unbeatable – the rain goes on vacation and the mountains come out and become the ultimate playground. We even got to go on an outdoor adventure with our Artistic Advisor, Joshua Roman, to Camp Muir at Mt. Rainier – the highest point on the mountain that you can get to without a climbing permit! Read about that and some of Joshua’s other favorite outdoor adventures on our blog.
Meanwhile, we’ve been channeling the creative energy indoors, too – our video production studios have been busy! Our latest video (above) is the world premiere recording of Movement for String Quartet and Piano by Andrius Žlabys, featuring Žlabys at the piano along with Arnaud Sussman, Johnny Gandelsman, Kyle Armbrust, and Joshua Roman. This piece was commissioned by Town Music at Town Hall Seattle and premiered on May 24, 2016.
And to round out our eclectic mix of videos, check out these recent productions that our support from New Music USA has made possible:
