Summer music filling Rose Gellert Hall this week

An exciting music festival is underway at Langley Community Music School (LCMS).

The school at 4899 207th St. is inviting the community to sit back and enjoy a variety of concerts by professionals and students during its Pulse Creative and Innovative Chamber Music Program and Festival.

The festival started Sunday and runs until Saturday in LCMS’s Rose Gellert Hall.

Pulse focuses on chamber music and also includes improvisation and composition. Festival concerts feature various collaborations among faculty, visiting artists, and student participants.

“Pulse is always an intensely creative and stimulating experience for both students and faculty,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, LCMS’ director of summer programs and artistic director of concerts.

Bergmann said the festival is a unique opportunity for students to experiment with different facets of a variety of creative processes.

“The combination of studying, rehearsing and performing a mix of the classical chamber music repertoire along with tackling new works of today makes for a vibrant atmosphere throughout the week,” she added.

One of the concerts on the program is Marcel Bergmann’s latest composition, Intango, which premiered at a Cafe Classico this season with flautist Paul Hung and cellist Ben Goheen. This performance will be slightly different as it will be played in the traditional piano trio formation (violin, cello, piano).

REMAINING CONCERTS July 24, 2 p.m. – Pulse Young Composers Competition Enjoy new works by young emerging composers as Pulse faculty perform and discuss various compositional aspects of the pieces. This event is held as a workshop for the young composers to try out new ideas, get helpful feedback from the performers, and hear their works being performed live for the first time.

July 25, 7:30 p.m. – Pulse Up to a Minute This concert highlights the creative efforts of the Pulse participants who will be performing their own individual compositions as well as the results of collective work through creative improvisation and group composition.

July 26, 7:30 p.m. – Pulse Final Concert Pulse participants will perform chamber works by Haydn, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Beethoven and Liszt.
