OpenPageEnsemble is Washington's newest chamber group, performing vocal and instrumental small-ensemble works of the 20th and 21st centuries. Founding directors, Rosa Lamoreaux, voice, and Lori Barnet, cello, are continually grateful for the privilege of performing music of the past 10 centuries, yet are compelled by curiosity to explore and perform music of our own era, and to commission new vocal and instrumental works for small ensemble.

    The Merry Month of May
    This most agreeable program will take you on a journey through British literary history with Four Fragments from the Canterbury Tales set by Lester Trimble for voice, flute, clarinet and harpsichord, Shakespeare texts set by Stravinsky for voice, flute, clarinet and viola, and As It Fell Upon A Day set by Copland for voice, clarinet and flute. The instrumental works include Lyric Trio by Carson Cooman, for trumpet, cello and piano, Six Shakespeare Sketches by Gordon Jacob, for string trio, and the delightful romp, Facade - an Entertainment by William Walton in a setting of dramatically spoken texts of Edith Sitwell, for cello, trumpet, clarinet, flute, percussion and narrators. We are joined by British actors Fiona and Garth Bardsley, for this program of music and poetry to entertain, amuse, and lift your spirits.
