Do. Not. Miss. This EPIC season opener titled Ukrainian Song, is true to the spirit of EPIC that it is a theme of symbolism more than literal meaning. Yes, this concert contains some Ukrainian music, but the title is more than this. You'll find that the music selections for this concert will evoke deep and honest feelings that people experience during times of struggle, galvanization, but also cultural connection and even celebration.
And we are so pleased to welcome Baritone Robert Sims, who is a specialist in spirituals and American songs and has appeared on PBS. We'll also have the pleasure of hearing Pianist Angelina Gadeliya, who regularly performs at Carnegie Hall and is a specialist in Ukrainian music. They will join forces to perform a variety of American and Ukrainian music. And finally, our artistic director Sergei Vassiliev joins in for a Colorado premiere of a clarinet piece by Ukrainian composer Myroslav Skoryk. Learn more.
Next EPIC season features guest artists who have performed as soloists with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestra. Hear the winners of Concert Artists Guild Ambassador Prize, Naumburg International Chamber Music Competition, and Avery Fischer Career Grant. These musicians have performed on A Prairie Home Companion, in Carnegie Hall, and The Concertgebouw - Amsterdam. Watch them join forces with local stars like Colorado Springs Philharmonic musicians Noah Kay on oboe, Jeremy Reynolds and Sergei Vassiliev on the clarinet, as well as select members of the Colorado Symphony.
Next season has it all from Wind Sextet to String Quartet, with our now signature inclusive and intimate, party-like atmosphere. All of this for an unbeatable price and with incredible production value by the talented young EPIC apprentices.
Our Vision: By involving national-level masters in collaboration with local stars and partnering with arts and educational institutions, EPIC brings out the best in innovative fine arts performance and propels our community to national prominence.
