The Sustain Music Project invites you to experience color like you never have before - through music for woodwind quintet and through the vivid oil paintings of Kimberly Adams, local artist, at the intimate venue of Resonance at Soma Towers in downtown Bellevue.
A presentation of Kimberly's paintings welcomes you into the space. Take time to peruse her work as you find your seat and grab a glass of wine to prepare you for the evening. Sit less than fifty feet away from the electrifying energy of the musicians as they take the stage. Each of the four pieces highlights a different aspect of Kimberly's work. The first two are paired with her series "Autumn" and "Summer". For the next piece, Kimberly will paint onstage - each of the six sections of music provides the inspiration for a specific color that she will add to her canvas. And for the last piece, a video of her painting a canvas from start to finish will be time-lapsed above the musicians as they play.
Local musicians Christina Medawar (artistic director of the Sustain Music Project), Eric Jacobs (Seattle Symphony), Dana Jackson (Pacific Northwest), Selina Greso (Symphony Tacoma) and Jill Jaques (freelancer) complete the musical ensemble. The program includes Ravel's "Le Tombeau de Couperin", Jennifer Hidgon's "Autumn Music", Ligeti's "Six Bagatelles", and David Maslanka's "Quintet Number 3".
The Sustain Music Project is a chamber music group founded in 2018 which connects the community through classical music by creating engaging and interesting musical experiences. Our programs tell stories through music and we connect it to what's happening around us in the present. We partner with different artistic mediums (such as visual arts, food, and dance) and with community-serving nonprofits to link music and life. Listeners can come to a deeper understanding and enjoyment of the music by experiencing it through the lenses of art, media, and community.
