John David Earnest‘s Commedia Gallery (2011) for flute, harp, and viola was both commissioned and premiered by the Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival. The performance took place June 10, 2017.
Founded in 2007 by Artistic Director, Timothy Christie, the Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival (WWCMF) is held in the rolling landscape of vineyards and farmland of Walla Walla Valley. Its quaint downtown reminiscent of a bygone era, Walla Walla is both backdrop and concert stage for this celebration of great music. Musicians perform in the intimate wineries, galleries, and theaters throughout the valley.
Earnest’s work was included among music by composers Andrew Normann (b. 1979), Arnold Bax (1883-1953), and Sergei Prokofiev (1891-1953).
