Chamber Music Series at the UMFA
Students Perform Art-Inspired Music in the Galleries

Does art inspire music, or does music inspire art? Experience the harmonious convergence of music and art at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) through a Chamber Music Series performance. For the first time this semester, students from the University of Utah School of Music will present a live musical performance in the museum’s galleries.

A clarinet duo will perform the following pieces in the UMFA’s 18th and 19th Century European Galleries:

Duo No.2 in D minor, Bernhard Crusell (1775-1839)
Allegro from Duo for violin and viola no.1 in G major, K. 423, W.A. Mozart (1756-1791), arranged by Reinier van der Wal
Six scenes from the Opera Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville), Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868), arranged by Fehér László Gábor

The performances are free with paid admission or a student Ucard.

In fall 2010, the UMFA launched the Chamber Music Series, a program designed by University of Utah student Clay Barnum. The Chamber Music Series program features art-inspired music performed by students from the University of Utah School of Music. The series invites museum visitors to experience the merging of sight and sound as they wander through the galleries, making connections between the music and the art.

The next Chamber Music Series performance will take place on April 6, 2011 at 7 pm. All Chamber Music Series performances are free with paid admission or a valid Ucard.
