Carrie Vecchione and Rolf Erdahl of OboeBass! invites you to the CD release party for their premiere recording of Valerie Coleman’s American Vein at the MetroNOME Brewery’s Fingal’s Cave, 7:00 pm, Tues. Jan. 24. Valerie and OboeBass! won a 2018 Classical Commissioning Grant from Chamber Music America for a new oboe/bass duo. The result was American Vein, a five-movement musical roadtrip across the USA from the Redwoods to the Statue of Liberty.
Valerie Coleman describes American Vein as “a nostalgic look at what the best of America means to us all.” Celebrating the community and pride that come from things that unite us, American Vein travels in time and geography across the country, revealing different aspects of things we know, remember, share, and believe about the USA. Coleman’s five-movement piece tours America, starting with the Redwood Forests, cruises down Route 66, visits Woodstock of 1952, pays homage to the Melting Pot at the Statue of Liberty, and finishes off with a Southern “Barn Raising, Bourbon and Bluegrass.”
