Complementing the Museum’s exhibit Clyfford Still, Art, and the Young Mind, the March Music in the Galleries will feature young musicians from El Sistema Colorado, an organization that empowers students from some of Denver’s lowest income communities by offering immersive music training and vital life skills.
This performance will showcase the ensemble Solazur, featuring cellist Katie Burns, an El Sistema Teaching Artist, performing with guitarist Russ Callison. The Mycelium Quartet, an upper level El Sistema student quartet, will also perform. Join us in celebrating the joy that music brings to these young leaders and musicians!
Solazur, featuring Katie Burns, cello, and Russ Callison, guitar, is a Denver-based duo that formed to offer intimate performances of cello and guitar music. The duo performs the diverse canon of existing music for the ensemble as well as new compositions, supporting and advocating for a thriving culture for living composers.
