Jan Boland (flute) ___ John Dowdall (guitar) _____ Carey Bostian (cello) _____ Dave Bozenhard (guitars / composer)

Dave Bozenhard is a guitarist and composer from Philadelphia who is known in the city as the go-to guy for jazz, rock, and classical. He has been a frequent participant in Red Cedar Chamber Music’s Summer Festival. Classical music by Schubert (Arpeggione Sonate) and Bartok (Romanian Dances) prepare the stage to feature two new compositions by Dave Bozenhard–– a quartet for steel string guitar, classical guitar, flute and cello titled WhirlpoolSide, plus a duet for steel string guitar and classical guitar. Dave’s compositions promise to cut across musical genres, and we expect we might see influences of jazz, rock & funk fused into classical music.

Artist sponsorship is provided by Don and Irene (Naxera) Hamous.

“An exceptionally rare, perhaps unique, and most certainly at least 100-year old collection” of silent films that comprise “perhaps the most significant collection of early films in the world” is being viewed for the first time in over 100 years in a series of concerts in 2015. Historian and narrator Michael Zahs shows The Brinton Film Collection and the Red Cedar Trio provides the music. A new commission by Harvey Sollberger, along with arrangements by Boland and Dowdall, create music designed especially for these rare films. Partners in the project include the Ainsworth Opera House, Special Collections at the University of Iowa, and the Augustine Foundation. Among the films are those of Georges Méliès, who life story was featured in the film Hugo. (photo by John Richard)

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 an anonymous donor.

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-century composers to accompany the silent film

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