Live Music at the Spartan Art Project

The Spartan Art Project presents the music of Ben Winship and Eli West on Friday March 22nd at 7:30PM.

Ben and Eli play Brother duets, both original and traditional. They have a sonic span that reflects and defies their geography. While both are rooted in the West, Ben in the Tetons and Eli in the PNW, they each have been moved by the traditions of SW Virginia, the Carter family fold, and broader fiddle tune traditions.
They deliver their songs with conviction, both writing and singing in a way that just stops short of a final sanding or veneer.

This performance is open to all ages and will be held in the Spartan Art Project, located just north of Building #9 on the TwispWorks campus.

Chamber Music 202

Ever wondered what Chamber Music is all about? What’s a sonata? Why do all stringed instruments have those funny-shaped holes?

Here’s your chance to catch a snappy afternoon performance and get your questions answered at the same time from professional and dedicated musicians.

The Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival, in partnership with TwispWorks, proudly presents Chamber Music 2.0 . Hosted by Kevin Krentz, the hour-long show will feature fun and familiar chamber music performed by Seattle’s Strum String Quartet. The Quartet is a dedicated group of professional musicians and teachers, who have played with many symphonies and artists—including Macklemore!

Dr. Krentz is an award-winning cellist, entrepreneur, educator, and the Artistic Director of the Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival. He has played on many movie soundtracks, including Pirates of the Caribbean, and he absolutely loves Chamber Music.

The musicians in the Strum Quartet share their love of classical music all around the Puget Sound community through teaching and performing. You won’t find a more amiable group of players, or a host better equipped to reveal the nature of Chamber Music than this. Don’t miss it!

This event is made free and open to the public through the Betti Foundation.
