The creativity of Guest Artist Duo Box Not Found brings to our series a sharp new dimension in small forces chamber music. With the addition of MEE flutist Orlando Cela, the upcoming program Clarinet & Friends will be distinctly different and definitely fascinating. The titles of the pieces commissioned by Box Not Found include What a Fast Little Engine! (from Scenes from ‘Choo-Choo’, by Ian Wiese, based on Choo-Choo, a 1937 children’s story by Virginia Lee Burton) and Joshua Fit The Battle, by Ariel Friedman, integrating poetry by Ariel Friedman and Walt Whitman, leading the listener through a family’s grief upon the loss of a child, and its healing through helping others.
