Continuum to Perform at Shriver Hall

Contemporary ensemble Continuum will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 4, as part of the 2003-2004 Shriver Hall Concert Series in Shriver Hall Auditorium on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Winner of the Siemens international prize for distinguished service to music and four ASCAP/Chamber Music America Awards for Adventuresome Programming, the New York-based Continuum is now in its 38th season. Reviewing a concert, The New York Times wrote, "Simply put, there is no musical organization in New York that produces more intellectually enticing or more viscerally satisfying programs than Continuum."

The group's name embodies the philosophy that new and old music form an unbroken tradition. Contiuum has performed throughout the United States, including appearances at the Kennedy Center, the Library of Congress and at colleges and community series throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. The ensemble has also performed 35 tours in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. CBS-TV, educational television, National Public Radio, the Voice of America, and European networks have broadcast Continuum events. Its co-directors are pianist Cheryl Seltzer and conductor Joel Sachs. Additional information about Continuum is online at www.continuum-ensemble-ny.org/.

Continuum's Shriver Hall Concert Series program will include Igor Stravinsky's "Septet," Ursula Mamlok's "Die Laterne," Mario Davidovsky's "Romancero," Chen Yi's "Near Distance," Lawrence Moss's "Suite for Flute, Clarinet, and Piano," Alfred Schnittke's "Piano Quartet," Conlon Nacarrow's "Trio for Clarinet, Bassoon, and Piano," and the world premiere of Elliott Sharp's "No Time Like the Stranger."

The final concert of this year's series will be performed by Eroica Trio on May 2.

Tickets are $33, $17 for students; 4:30 p.m. student rush, $8. For information, call 410-516-7164. Visit Shriver Hall Concert Series online at www.shriverconcerts.org/, where a digital photo of Continuum is available for download.
