Paramount Players present Ancient, Modern and In-between

February 18–21 | Paramount Center for the Arts

The Paramount Chamber Players presents Ancient, Modern and In-between in Bristol, Johnson City, Kingsport and Abingdon from February 18-21 exploring music of four composers who broke the rules in either musical or societal expectations — Handel, Vivaldi, Dvorak, and Debussy.

Wealthy and famous from his compositions, Handel broke from the tradition of working for wealthy patrons. Although ordained as a priest, Vivaldi chose music over the clergy. Debussy infuriated his teachers by intentionally breaking the rules of composition. Breaking with European tradition, Dvorak moved to the US where he lived four years discovering the native music that became our national pride — spirituals and jazz.

TPCP will be joined by guest violinist, Patrick Dalton-Holmes, violinist from the Indianapolis Symphony. Also appearing in this performance: Craig W. Combs, piano; Rebecca Paluzzi, flute; Kimberly Ray, violin; Luis Casal, viola; Cherylonda Fitzgerald, cello; and, Thomas Maternik, cello.

Performances are on Thursday, February 18, 7:30 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Johnson City, TN; February 19, 7:30pm at First Presbyterian Church in Kingsport, TN; Saturday, February 20, 7:30 p.m. at The Paramount Center for the Arts in Bristol, TN; and on Sunday, February 21, 3:00 p.m. as part of the Spencer-Miller Memorial Concert Series at Sinking Spring Presbyterian Church in Abingdon, VA.
