Looking Back, Moving Forward: A Musical Odyssey with The Counterclockwise Ensemble

Join The Counterclockwise Ensemble for a unique listening experience that combines the intimacy and instrumentation of chamber music with the energy and vitality of a rock concert. Evoking the mood and spirit of both European and American classical masterpieces, the Ensemble will take you on a sonic journey that draws much of its inspiration from the natural beauty of the American landscape in full bloom and the hearty music of its people in celebration.

The Counterclockwise Ensemble is a guitar, strings and percussion quintet that plays contemporary American chamber music. Equally at home in a variety of genres, the group primarily plays the compositions of guitarist Rich Stein, sprinkling in pieces by Gustav Holst, Aaron Copland and Led Zeppelin as well as traditional American and Irish folk tunes into their sets.

Originally formed in order to perform the pieces on Stein’s CDs Unspoken (2003) and Counterclockwise (2007), the current ensemble includes founding members Rich Stein (guitar), Andrew and Rebecca Perea (violin and cello), Glen Saunders (double bass) and Jim Mansfield (percussion).

Please register at 466-8055, ext. 208 or register online. Great Neck Library District residents have priority for seating.
