Martin's guitar playing has earned him a high level of respect and recognition; he was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on 'Aqualung'. His playing on Jethro Tull's album Crest of a Knave earned him a Grammy award in 1988.
As well as numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has worked with many other artists including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Jo Bonamassa and Chris Thompson and has shared a stage with such legends as Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.
Barre was recently the subject of an in-depth article in Guitar World Magazine. Go HERE to read all about this unique star of an amazing and undefinable band!
For Something New, Denise and Martin turn their attention to performing works from the 20th Century canon: there is a great variety here, from miniatures in dissonance, to shimmering musical impressionism to a straight out jazz tribute from an American composer who believed in breaking down the boundaries between "popular" and classical music.
If you often find it difficult to "get" more modern works, let Denise (and Martin) guide you through it. She plays with passion and her understanding of the music as well as her ability to communicate its meaning to the audience is what makes her a favorite as the Yakima Symphony Orchestra Concertmistress.
Prior to the concert, there will be a meet and greet in the gallery with snacks, beverages, and conversation with the musicians starting at 6:15 PM.
Szymanowski: 3 Mythes
A famous work of impressionistic brilliance by a Polish composer of the early 1900's who became very influential with more modern composers based on his way of using the violin in his compositions.
Webern: 4 Short pieces
Anton Webern was an early 20th Century composer whose works were notoriously short, condensed statements of musical genius. These four pieces contain an enormous amount of musical innovation without anything to spare.
William Bolcom Violin Sonata #2 in memory of jazz violinist, Josef Venuti.
A gospel feel with jazz and modern music elements in a signature work by the American Composer, who is still actively pursuing his vision.
We are fortunate to have so many fine musicians from the Yakima Symphony Orchestra to interpret this music and reveal its many facets.

The world's greatest all-live tribute to MCA, Mike D and ADRock
Life long Beastie Boys fans have joined forces to create the world's greatest all-live tribute to MCA, Mike D and ADRock, featuring a full 5 piece band (The White Castle Combo) with 3 mc's, an amazing stage show and Beastie antics galore. Doors open one hour before show starts.
Canticus Vocal Ensemble is pleased to partner with Mid-Columbia Mastersingers to present our first
ever collaboration program celebrating the music and heritage of Latin America.
The central work of the concert, Missa Latina by Bobbi Fischer, is a complete setting of the Latin
Mass for chorus, solo soprano, and a band consisting of violin, accordion, and jazz ensemble of
piano, double bass, drums and percussion. The word "Latina" not only refers to the Latin text, but
also to the musical style which makes use of Latin American rhythms. Elements from Argentinian
tangos stand side by side with Caribbean rhythms and Latin jazz with space provided for
instrumental improvisations. With this mass, the composer has succeeded in building a bridge
between the music of Europe and that of South America. Featured performers include George
Woodward on accordion and soprano soloist Naomi Isabel Ruiz Wickson. Both choirs will feature
their own repertoire separately to start the concert, then will come together for Missa Latina as a
great finale in this collaboration.
Join us for an evening of all-star Latin Jazz as The Cal Tjader Project of the Susan Pascal Sextet fills The Seasons with the wonderful sounds of some of the most scintillating vibraphone music of the last 50 years. Susan is widely respected and loved as one of the best vibes players in the northwest with several albums to her name.
She will be joined an an all-star band including Chuck Deardorf, Bass; Fred Hoadley, Piano, Jeff Busch, Percussion; Mark Ivester, Drums and the indefatigable Jay Thomas on flute and horns.
Great music - a blast from the past. And great performers. In a hall that was built (it seems) for the vibraphone.
Seattle jazz vibraphonist Susan Pascal has taken her music through four tours of Singapore and concerts, workshops and clinics across the United States. Her Pacific Northwest appearances include the Earshot Jazz Festival and Centrum Jazz Port Townsend, and as a special guest artist with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra, the Seattle Baroque Orchestra, and Seattle's Gypsy jazz group, Pearl Django.
Pascal's eclectic musical interests are reflected in her own projects. Susan Pascal's SOUL SAUCE quintet is a tribute to Latin jazz icon Cal Tjader, and her new BRAZIL PROJECT band features the rich rhythmic and melodic traditions of Brazil. Her straight-ahead jazz group, the SUSAN PASCAL QUARTET has been nominated twice for Best Acoustic Group by Seattle's Earshot Jazz.
Pascal is heard on motion picture soundtracks including "The Wedding Planner", "Office Space", "Eulogy" and "Mirror, Mirror" and is a guest artist on recordings by vocalist Greta Matassa, "All This and Heaven Too," "And to All a Good Night," and "The Smiling Hour"; the Vern Sielert's Dektet recording, "From There to Here"; slide guitarist Orville Johnson's "Slide and Joy"; and many others.
"Fluid stick work and coherent, compact solos
make this vibraphonist a delight."
