Two distinctive composers on the Seattle scene, clarinetist Beth Fleenor and trumpeter Samantha Boshnack, showcase their works for large ensembles in one of the city’s finest concert rooms.

B’shnorkestra will play promptly at 8:00 followed by the WE Ensemble.

B’shnorkestra is an alternative chamber orchestra featuring the compositions of trumpeter Samantha Boshnack. In August they released “Go To Orange”, their first CD release. At this show they will be playing pieces from the record as well as three new compositions. B’shnorkestra features; Joshua Kohl, Samantha Boshnack, Alex Guy, Alina To, Brianna Atwell, Maria Scherer Wilson, Daniel Mullikin, Tobi Stone, Chris Credit, Adam Kozie, Greg Campbell, Isaac Castillo, Tim Carey and Lalo Bello.

Hailed as “alternately buoyant and ponderous, transfixing and exceptional” (City Arts Magazine), Beth Fleenor’s Workshop Ensemble is a modular project that performs her chamber works. Grounded in learning and working Fleenor’s 20 Etudes for Blindfolded Musicians, WE also work in conduction and sonic meditation. Through the use of blindfolds to heighten full body listening/awareness, WE cultivate focused intention, highlighting that intention as a respected member of the ensemble, in a practice of non-visual, non-verbal empathic communication. For this performance WE will feature Michele Khazak (voice), Brian Bermudez (tenor), Chris Credit (bass clarinet), Sam Boshnack (trumpet), Naomi Seigel (trombone), Michael Owcharuk (piano), Geoff Larson (bass), Greg Campbell (percussion), Adam Kozie (drums), and Beth Fleenor (clarinet, voice, composition). /
