The 5-Penny New Music Ensemble, a group comprised of some of Sudbury’s leading musicians, will be giving the next concert in the 5-Penny Concert Series. The concert is on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 8 pm at St. Peter’s United Church, Sudbury. General admission for each concert is $20 and $15 for students and seniors. Tickets are available at Black Cat, 96 Durham Street, Sudbury, or at the door. The debut of this ensemble, which includes violinists Christian Robinson and Geoff McCausland, violist Jane Russell, cellist Alexandra Lee, flautist Myriam Valley, and pianist Yoko Hirota, represents a new phase in programming for the series. It will serve as a core unit that will perform masterworks of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in future seasons. For its inaugural concert, the ensemble will perform music by Canadian composers. Works will include “Surface” for solo flute by Brian Harman (World premiere), “Five Pieces” for flute and cello by Alice Ho (Canadian premiere), “Piano Piece No. 1” by Brian Current, “Adagio and Rondo, op. 3” for string quartet by Jacques Hétu, “Rolling” for solo piano by Laurie Radford, “Flute Quartet” for flute and strings by Derek Charke, and “Territoires intérieurs” for piano and strings by Robert Lemay.
