New Music Ensemble Holds Inaugural Concert

ROCK HILL, S.C. - Out of Bounds Ensemble, the newly formed Resident New Music Ensemble at Winthrop University’s Department of Music, will present its inaugural concert on Saturday, April 19, at 3 p.m. in the Barnes Recital Hall on the campus of Winthrop University.

The Out of Bounds Ensemble is the first and only ensemble in the Charlotte area that specializes in music written during the 20th and 21st century. The founding members of the ensemble are Tomoko Deguchi (pianist), Mark Lewis (composer/pianist), and Ron Parks (composer) all assistant professors at Winthrop University’s Music Department, Craig Bove (composer) chairman of the Music Department at Central Piedmont Community College, and Geoffrey Whitehead (conductor/tubist) the conductor of Charlotte Civic Orchestra.

The ensemble’s members consist of professional musicians from the greater Charlotte area, many of which perform regularly in Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and with other professional organizations.

The April 19 concert includes a solo violin work by Craig Bove, a solo piano piece by John Corigliano, a flute and tuba duet by Walter Hartley, and the first seven movements of Pierro Lunaire by Arnold Schoenberg. The performers are Tomoko Deguchi (piano), Lorraine Gorrell (voice), Nick Lampo (cello), Mark Lewis (piano), Reese Manceaux (clarinet), Judy Meister (violin), Amy Orsinger Whitehead (flute) and Geoffrey Whitehead (conductor/tuba).

The Out of Bounds Ensemble’s first concert will be free and open to the public, thanks to the generous support of Don Rogers, chair of Winthrop's Department of Music, and the volunteer musicians.
