A Celtic Summertide: Thank You!

Thank You to everyone who came out to experience “A Celtic Summertide” with us at the Oliver Art Center in Frankfort! It was a lovely evening of music and art made all the lovelier by the warmth of your company. The gallery became filled…

The Old Ash Tree

“The Old Ash Tree” is dedicated to my grandfather, Bryant McKinney. In it, I hope to capture his strength, the beauty of the humble life he’s led, and his role as a central axis in my family, the main branch in our tree of life.

O’Carolan Reimagined

Rather than attempt to recreate what O’Carolan himself might have done with these tunes, I chose to compose in a style I felt would indulge O’Carolan’s own musical curiosity while giving a nod to the colorful anecdotes that pepper the many written accounts of his life.

A Story that Lingers, a Tune that Wanders

A story ripped from its song, turned into a poem, and then married to a tune borrowed from yet another song — what a tangled web!

A Celtic Summertide: The Art of Collaboration

Collaborating artist Emily Curtin Culler, soprano, will premiere a new collection of Irish songs and join us in other traditional works specially arranged for this concert.

Variety: It’s the Spice!

Our September 24th concert was an experiment: a test to see just how much variety could be crammed into a single concert program performed by a single ensemble. To up the ante, we also added an element of chance; allowing the audience to play…

Dolce e Delizioso III

In the final variation in our Dolce e Delizioso collection, we’ll turn a single cake layer into a decadent layered dessert that will make an impressive presentation in a trifle dish or can be made into elegant individual servings.

Dolce e Delizioso II

Today’s variation turns one cake layer into a simple but decadent layer cake sure to please any fans of the classic Moon Pie sandwich cookie: buttery cake layers separated by fluffy marshmallow creme, all enclosed in a shell made of rich chocolate.

Dolce e Delizioso I

In this final collection of recipes, we’ll play sweetly in the kitchen; calling upon a single versatile cake recipe to deliver an array of tempting treats fit for finishing a meal or rounding out a special occasion.

Lines & Spaces III

For the final variation in our Lines & Spaces series, we’ll swap out the greens for some colorful beans; and take out the ricotta, replacing it with nutty, creamy fontina to make a lasagna like no other!

Lines & Spaces II

Our first variation spins our lines and spaces in a new, green direction — replacing meat with leafy Swiss chard for a lighter lasagna that still delivers the warm-fuzzies we expect from comfort food.

Lines & Spaces I

Within the five lines and four spaces of a staff, a composer creates all manner of beauty and complexity. In our second “Theme & Variations” recipe collection, we take our cue from the staff, making a delicious composition using everyone’s favorite comfort food: lasagna!
