John Dowdall (guitar) _____Jan Boland (flute) ___ Miera Kim (violin) _____ Carey Bostian (cello)

Multifaceted guitarist and composer Dave Bozenhard, known in Philadelphia as the go-to guy for jazz, rock and classical, has written two new compositions for Red Cedar Chamber Music. Dave’s quartet for electric guitar, classical guitar, flute and cello and his duet for steel string and classical guitars blend his eclectic styles into a memorable classical/pop fusion. Classical works by Franz Schubert (Arpeggione Sonate) and Bartok (Romanian Dances) provide the backdrop for Dave’s exciting new sounds!

Artist sponsorship is provided by an anonymous contributer.

Zahs Boland DowdallThis fascinating concert features “an exceptionally rare, perhaps unique, collection” of silent films from 1895-1910 that comprise “perhaps the most significant collection of early films in the world.” Viewed for the first time in over 100 years, The Brinton Silent Film Collection features historian Michael Zahs as narrator with the Red Cedar Trio providing the music. A new commission by Harvey Sollberger, plus arrangements by Boland and Dowdall, creates music designed to complement these 20 rare films ranging in length from 10 seconds to 10 minutes. The silent films include comedy, drama, special effects, foreign scenes and magic by Georges Méliès, whose life story was featured in the film Hugo. Our partners in the project include the Ainsworth Opera House and Special Collections at the University of Iowa.

The concerts is sponsored by the Augustine Foundation. This project is supported, in part, by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Artists sponsorship comes from Don & Irene (Naxera) Hamous and Vic & Jan Naxera in memory of Max Naxera.

The Program
The Brinton Silent Film Project

More than twenty short films – ranging from comedy, to magic, to drama with special effects – have been hand-selected to entertain while, at the same time, showing the kinds of early film which delighted early 20th-century audiences.

Red Cedar Chamber Music has selected music by a myriad of 19th and 20th and 21st-century composers to accompany the silent film.

Four films are set to new music, written especially for this project, by Harvey Sollberger.

New music commissioned for this project by
Michael Kimber "

Stephen Cohn "

Philip Wharton "

Additional music arranged and/or repurposed to compliment the slides by Jan Boland.
