The Merian Ensemble Performs Beach, Higdon and More on Broadcast Concert

The Atlanta-based chamber group presents another of its concerts in its “Listen: Works by Women Composers” series Monday (6/3 at 8 pm), with an encore broadcast Saturday (6/8).

The Merian Ensemble - made up of five artists who are all members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra - is dedicated to performing music by women composers. This week we’ll hear the concert they gave back on in February titled “Myth & Nature,” which featured music of Clarice Assad, Amy Beach, Ruth Gipps, Danielle Eva Schwob, Jennifer Higdon and Leilehua Lanzilotti. This performance also presents a world premiere of a Merian Ensemble commission by music of Soon He Newbold. The composer joins host David Osenberg and co-host Elizabeth Remy Johnson, the harpist in the Merian Ensemble, for this broadcast concert. You can enjoy an encore broadcast Saturday at 2 pm.

David Osenberg is WWFM Partnership Manager, WWFM Music Director, Afternoon Host, and Host of award-winning Cadenza.
