Myra Presents: Saint Louis Brass

 

Sunday, March 24, 2019 | 2 PM

Founded in 1964, the Saint Louis Brass Quintet is one of America’s longest standing brass quintets. Members of the St. Louis Symphony originally formed the Saint Louis Brass by to play children’s concerts around the St. Louis area. Soon though, they had expanded to present full-length concerts funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Missouri Arts Council and the Mid-America Arts Alliance. Now, forty years and more than 2,500 engagements later, the only original member still in the group — and the only one who actually lives in St. Louis — is trombonist Melvyn Jernigan, who retired from the St. Louis Symphony after thirty-five years. The other quintet members hold top positions across the United States: Professors at Yale, University of Texas, Austin and Indiana University.

The Saint Louis Brass Quintet performs the entire spectrum of great music for brass – from the works of today’s composers to Baroque and Renaissance music transcribed for modern instruments. Light-hearted entertainment intertwines with serious classical music. The program has not yet been formalized.

Myra Presents: Rolston String Quartet

 

Sunday, April 7, 2019 2pm

 

In 2016, the Rolston String Quartet took First Prize at the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition. Their place was secured on the international stage when Chamber Music America (CMA), the national network for ensemble music professionals, awarded the Rolston String Quartet the Cleveland Quartet Award for the 2018–19 and 2019–20 seasons. Prior Cleveland Awards have gone to the Brentano, Borromeo, Pacifica, Jupiter, and Dover Quartets, all of which have performed in the North Dakota Museum of Art’s Concert series, several more than once.

The Rolston String Quartet was named among the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s 2016 “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30.” A winner of Astral’s 2016 National Auditions, the quartet was also the Grand Prize winner of the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, as well as prizewinners at the inaugural M-Prize competition (2016) and the 2016 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition.

In the 2016-17 season, they embarked upon the Banff Competition’s winner’s tour, which took them throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Israel. Having recently completed a residency at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, the group currently serves as the Yale School of Music’s fellowship quartet-in-residence.

Twenty-five percent of the fee to bring the Rolston Quartet to the North Dakota Museum of Art and Mayville State University is funded by the Art Midwest Touring Fund.
