Through collaborations with medical researchers whose work stands at the intersection of language and music processing in the auditory system and brain, I provide two case studies from my perspective as musician-collaborator. The first, with a biomedical engineer and a linguist, explored the question of whether musical training improves auditory stream segregation—the ability to separate a single voice from surrounding noise. We adapted an existing hearing-in-noise test to a new format that is easy to administer and inexpensive, with potential to improve hearing-loss detection. In the second, with a cognitive scientist and a neurosurgeon, I served as music consultant during awake brain surgery. Here I assisted in developing and then scoring a musical task that helped guide the surgeon’s work as he removed a tumor positioned near the right superior temporal gyrus of a professional saxophone player’s brain, in an area potentially critical for music processing. The task alternated linguistic and musical stimuli, and successfully identified music-specific areas that were successfully preserved in surgery.

Grammy Award-winning flutist Rhonda Larson was born and raised in the mountains of Montana. This Big Sky Country in the Wild West helped form her nature-loving, free spirited trail-blazing artistry. She entered the national music scene by winning first prize in the National Flute Association’s Young Artist Competition at the age of 22, including a Carnegie Hall debut. Shortly thereafter, she joined the Paul Winter Consort, initiating her journey into a rich palette of music from around the world.

Composing much of her own music, Larson’s visionary force showcases her gold flute and an array of ethnic flutes in a new and refreshing light. She has expanded the sonic capabilities of her instrument with entirely new techniques, most notably her inventive simultaneous flute-and-voice unison. Larson tours world-wide, and has a discography of over 20 commercial recordings, including Distant Mirrors and Free as a Bird. Her latest CD release, Live from China, features her band Ventus from a recent 25-city tour throughout China. Most of the selections are Larson’s original World Fusion compositions, including arrangements of traditional Celtic, Armenian, Romanian, and Chinese melodies. She owns and operates her publishing company, Wood Nymph Music, producing her sheet music from graphic design to distribution.

Opera Theatre's first DOUBLE FEATURE:

LA CURANDERA (Comedy).. .The betrothed Alberto and Alba are about to board a jet for Mexico City to visit his family and receive blessings on their upcoming nuptials when Alba intercepts a cell phone call for Alberto, who is at the counter attending to last-minute details. After the mellifluous Spanish-speaking female on the other end of the line asks for Alberto, the connection is cut off. Alba becomes suspicious, grills Alberto about the other woman and the suspected affair, and then turns a cold shoulder. The conflict is resolved when Alberto's uncle's nurse and the local innkeeper conspire to get Alba to visit La Curandera, the local mystical healer…

DIDO AND AENEAS (Tragedy) by Henry Purcell... This opera documents the story of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and the Prince of Troy, Aeneas. Based on book IV of Virgil’s epic poem, ‘The Aeneid’, Purcell’s opera is his first and only all-sung work.

The internationally acclaimed Attacca Quartet returns to Texas State for its continuing series of short residencies. Formed at the Juilliard School in 2003, their professional debut in 2007 was part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. For the 2014-2015 season, they were selected as the Quartet in Residence by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The Attacca Quartet’s most recent album release included string quartet works of TXST composer Michael Ippolito. These works were performed as part of the group’s residency at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, including three concerts of works by living composers.

The Attacca Quartet recently completed a recording project of Haydn’s masterwork “The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross,” arranged by Andrew Yee and the Quartet. In his review for Gramophone, Donald Rosenberg wrote, “The Attacca Quartet explore the work’s range of expressive moods with utmost sensitivity to nuance and interplay .... They triumph in every respect, and are captured in such vivid sound that no telling Haydn detail is allowed to go unheard.” In 2013, the quartet released the complete works for string quartet by John Adams on Azica Records. It was praised by Steve Smith of The New York Times as a “vivacious, compelling set,” describing the Attacca Quartet’s playing as “exuberant, funky, and … exactingly nuanced.” The Boston Globe also praised the release, citing “superb performances.” The album was the recipient of the 2013 National Federation of Music Clubs Centennial Chamber Music Award. The Attacca Quartet is represented by Baker Artists, LLC.

Guest Artist Bonnie McAlvin performs a flute recital, including works composed by herself and the Martinu trio for flute, cello, and piano. Accompanists include Texas State faculty Karla Hamelin, cello, and William McNally, piano.

Flutist-composer Bonnie McAlvin is winner of the National Flute Association’s national convention performer competition. She is known for her rare ability to play multiphonics—a technique somewhat akin to playing double-stops on a string instrument. Her 2015 video release, “Parallel Transformations” drew international attention for its use of multiphonics in a completely tonal context, and she is featured on the list of famous flutists of All About Flute.

The Hill Country Youth Chorus performs their end of the semester performance.

Founded in 2005, The Hill Country Youth Chorus provides an accessible, comprehensive music education and performance program that serves boys and girls from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. The curriculum equips these young artists with the musical skills that enable them to seek the highest artistic standards in performances of challenging music. It is hoped that the discipline and concentration learned by each student-artist in rehearsal and performance will instill in them the values necessary to succeed in music and life. HCYC’s emphasis on excellence spotlights the collective strength inherent in young people collaborating in the fulfillment of a collective idea. The potential for human achievement provided by this model merits a resonance throughout the wider sphere of community life.

Hub New Music is “one of the most talked about younger contemporary classical ensembles” (Oregon ArtsWatch). With its unique instrumentation of flute, clarinet, violin, and cello, the ensemble of “intrepids” (WQXR, New York) has been praised for performances of adventurous repertoire that are “gobsmacking and perfectly played” (Cleveland Classical), with the Boston Globe encouraging audiences, "next time the group offers a concert, go, listen, and be changed." The ensemble celebrates the fluidity and diversity of voices in today’s classical music landscape. Its repertoire includes the works of leading composers such as Mason Bates, Matthew Aucoin, Anna Clyne, Kati Agócs, Nico Muhly, Robert Honstein, Laura Kaminsky, Angel Lam, and more. Highlights for the 2018/19 season include festival appearances at the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music Festival (Bowling Green, OH), Sacramento State Festival of New American Music, Blue Sage Arts Center Modern Music Festival (Paonia, CO), and Connecticut Summerfest (Hartford, CT); a new quartet by award-winning composers Kati Agócs; its international debut in mainland Japan with the Silkroad Ensemble’s Kojiro Umezaki (shakuhachi), and a collaboration with Boston's Urbanity Dance at the Peabody Essex Museum (Salem, MA). Fueled by the spirit of collaboration, Hub has brought several large-scale projects into fruition. These include “Matsuri,” an evening-length collaboration with shakuhachi player Kojiro Umezaki, and the Asia/America New Music Institute; a 25-minute collaborative work with the renown composer/harpist Hannah Lash; and a choreographed production of its Soul House program presented with Urbanity Dance and the Peabody Essex Museum. HNM was named one of WQXR’s “10 Cutting-Edge Artists That Have Captured the Imagination,” in 2016.
