This event is open to the public.
The Khasma Piano Duo will present "Trekking," a project inspired by people and nature moving through space and time. The program will feature brand new works written for the duo, along with music by Meredith Monk. Chris Craychee (www.chriscraychee.com) will provide video art to accompany each piece. This concert is in celebration of the duo's 10th anniversary.
The Khasma Piano Duo was formed in 2012 by Ashlee Mack and Katherine Palumbo. They have been playing together since meeting at Bucknell University in 2000. Because of their shared enthusiasm for contemporary music, the duo has dedicated themselves to the performance and recording of works from the 20th and 21st centuries. They have given world-premiere performances of music by notable living composers including Matthew Heap, Robert Morris, Lawrence Moss, James Romig, and David Vayo. Their concert tours have taken them to Illinois, Indiana, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, including performances at the Eastman School of Music, the Marshall University Festival of New Music, the Illinois College Fine Arts Series, and the SCI National Conference at Ball State University. Khasma is planning a 2022-2023 tour for their 10th anniversary, which will feature six new works commissioned by the duo and a collaboration with visual artist Chris Craychee. Their albums Switchback and Time Seems To Pass are available at Amazon, iTunes, and Bandcamp. Additional recordings can be heard on Innova and Navona Records.
