"Happy Hour!" serves as the culmination of a three part collaboration between IonSound Project and several local gastro hot spots in Pittsburgh. The final concert in March brings the ensemble back to their home in Bellefield Hall with a program featuring music by Zahab, Mompou, Szymanowski and Oriana Webb. The works were chosen specifically to highlight the aspect of "clear finishes" and "luminous ruminations."
Department of Music Ensemble-in-Residence IonSound Project comprises flutist Peggy Yoo, clarinetist Kathleen Costello, violinist Laura Motchalov, cellist Elisa Kohanski, and pianists Rob Frankenberry and Jack Kurutz. IonSound seeks to add to Pittsburgh's cultural life by programming innovative concerts, commissioning works of new music, collaborating with artists in a variety of disciplines, and exploring the boundaries between concert and popular music.
