Music in Bass Hall: The Red Hedgehog Trio

February 22, 2015 @ 3:00 pm

$12 – $40

Tickets $15 / $12 members, seniors, students. Order online below or call 603-924-3235

Red Hedgehog Trio The Red Hedgehog Trio comes to Bass Hall to share some of their favorite piano chamber music, via a revealing add-an-instrument format. Dan will warm the room with J.S. Bach’s First Partita, an intimately lyrical work for solo keyboard. Then he will be joined by Marji for Mozart’s late A-major violin sonata – a wonderful display of Mozart’s hilarity, creativity, and humanity. For the most venturesome leg of this winter afternoon’s musical journey, Marina will come bearing the fresh, brass element that completes the Red Hedgehog Trio, for a performance of one of the classical music tradition’s most beloved, dramatic works: Johannes Brahms’ trio for horn, violin and piano. Spoiler: an illustrious Monadnock-area musician may sneak onstage to join the Hedgehogs for a closing waltz or two. Who will it be?

Boston-based musicians Marina Krickler (horn), Marji Gere (violin), and Dan Sedgwick (piano) have been performing together since 2010.  They serve as core members of a nascent collective of classical musicians who are dedicated to finding and forging connections between education, community building, and performance.  In a nod to Johannes Brahms’ seminal trio for horn, violin and piano, the group borrows its name from Brahms’ favorite Viennese coffee house, Zum Roten Igel  (The Red Hedgehog).

Recent projects have included performances at The Boston Conservatory and the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, the premiere of a new work with the Fifth Floor Collective, and the recording of Harvard University undergraduate compositions.


 

Marji Gere, violin

Marji Gere

Marji grew up in Davenport, Iowa, a city known for its musically rich public school system. She earned Bachelor’s degrees in Music and English from the University of Iowa in 2002, where she studied violin and chamber music with Annette-Barbara Vogel, the Maia Quartet, and the late Leopold LaFosse. In 2007, she earned a Master’s in Arts in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Marji’s education and career have taken her into many realms: she has taught creative writing, worked in the forms of visual art, theater, and puppetry, and conducted research in second language teaching and learning. During 2002-2005, she was a fellow of the US State Department’s Cyprus-America Scholarship Program, investigating the role of chamber music in conflict resolution in Cyprus. From 2009-2014, Marji taught violin, viola, and chamber music to students in Mattapan, MA through the organization musiConnects, and performed as violinist of the Boston Public Quartet. Currently, Marji teaches violin and piano in Somerville and Boston and performs in a variety of chamber music settings, on baroque and modern violin.

 

 

Marina Krickler, horn

Marina Krickler

A native of Calgary, Alberta, Marina was drawn to the horn in high school, at the encouragement of her band director. She earned a Music Performance Diploma from Mount Royal University in 2005, where she studied with Laurie Matiation. She went on to complete a Bachelor’s of Music in Performance from the University of Toronto in 2008, where she studied with Gabe Radford. In 2010, Marina earned a Master’s of Music in Performance from The Boston Conservatory, under the tutelage of Eli Epstein. She has also participated in a number of summer festivals, including National Academy Orchestra, and National Youth Orchestra of Canada.

Currently, Marina performs with a variety of ensembles, including New Bedford Symphony Orchestra, and Vermont Symphony Orchestra. As a soloist, she recently performed Mozart’s Concerto No. 4 with Haffner Sinfonietta. Believing strongly in the value of music education, Marina is on faculty at Winchester Community Music School, and teaches in Medfield and Wellesley Public Schools, as well as privately.
