Chamber Ensemble Satori to perform at Moravian College

Bethlehem, Pa., January 7, 2009—The 10th Annual Satori Midwinter Concert, featuring the music of Dvorak, Schubert and Libby Larsen and new works by Bethlehem composer Paul Salerni, will be held Saturday, January 23 at 7:30 p.m. in Foy Concert Hall at Moravian College.

Satori is a professional chamber music ensemble based in the Lehigh Valley that performs regularly throughout the eastern United States. Its mission is to foster growth in chamber music appreciation through a regular series of public performances, special projects, and educational programs, to present chamber music in an accessible fashion, maintaining a high standard of musical excellence, and to explore traditional and contemporary chamber music repertoires. It is a mixed ensemble of winds, strings, and piano, and plays both traditional and contemporary chamber music.

Satori was formed as a conductor-less, musician-managed chamber ensemble in 1996. The name is taken from a Zen term suggesting the coming together of separate parts to form a whole.  The group’s dozen core musicians have performed together for many years and are frequently joined by additional guest artists. Since its inception, Satori has performed twelve full concert series, with numerous appearances at area colleges, museums, and music festivals. The group’s schedule regularly includes in-school educational programming, multidisciplinary performance projects, and concert series at area senior residences and hospitals, as well as formal concerts and appearances by smaller, "cameo" ensembles.

Admission for the concert is $14 for general admission, $10 for seniors & students, and $5 for children 12 and under.  Advance tickets can be purchase online at: http://www.lvartsboxoffice.org/. Foy Concert Hall is located on Moravian College’s South Campus.

Moravian College is a private, coeducational, selective liberal arts college located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Tracing its founding to 1742, it is recognized as America's sixth-oldest college. Visit the Web site at www.moravian.edu.
