Gorton Center – Stuart Community Room

This season at Rendezvous is the first time we will have 8 musicians performing together. Deb Stevenson and Jennet Ingle, oboe; Wagner Campos and Elizandro Garcia-Montoya, clarinet; Jonathan Saylor and John Gaudette, bassoon; Dan O’Connell and Anna Mayne, horn. Our biggest Rendezvous Arts group yet! 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons and 2 french horns!!! Here is your chance to see the woodwinds of the orchestra up close and personal! Together they will present to you one of Mozart’s own favorite compositions – his amazing C minor Serenade. The group will also play octets by Haydn and Beethoven. You’ll be intrigued by the way these very different composers can take the same basic group of instruments and make them sound unique through the different styles and color changes found in these works!

ARTIST: Weriem With a passion for the performing arts, an eye for detail, and a love for historical elements, Weriem likes to capture the theatricality of life. Colored pencils allow her to play with successive layers of pigments to add depth, saturation and energy to her drawings. When she uses black ink only, the striking contrast creates bold, graphic compositions. In each piece, she invites us to connect with our own imaginary theater, with sometimes, a soupçon of drama!

WERIEM known as Meriem Bahri, is a French and Tunisian artist praised for her gorgeous and evocative, spectacular and sumptuous array of period-perfect costumes by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, respectively. With a decade of experience designing costumes for live performances (including the Royal Swedish Opera, the Boston Early Music Festival, Haymarket Opera, Opera Lafayette), her drawings have also been featured as projections during concerts, CD covers, and other commissioned illustrations. Prior to delving into the visual arts and relocating from France to her current home in Chicago, Weriem earned a PhD in science from University de Lille.
