Grammy Nominated Chamber Group to Perform Jan. 22nd at Penn State Behrend

The New York Times has described Inscape Chamber Orchestra performances as “brilliant.” The Washington Post has lauded the group for its “guts and musical sensitivity.”

On Monday, Jan. 22, Erie residents will see for themselves when the ensemble performs at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, as part of Music at Noon: The Logan Series. The concert begins at noon in McGarvey Commons, in the college’s Reed Union Building. Admission is free, and reserved parking for audience members will be available in the Reed lot.

Founded in 2004 by artistic director Richard Scerbo, Inscape Chamber Orchestra prides itself on producing classical music that’s relevant for all generations. Since its inception, the Grammy-nominated group has commissioned and premiered more than 20 new works. Inscape regularly performs as the Ensemble-in-Residence at The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Bethesda, Maryland.

Music at Noon: The Logan Series was founded by Mrs. Kay Logan in 1989 and receives major support from the Kay Logan Trust. Additional funding is provided by the Penn State Behrend Student Activity Fee. Music at Noon receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additional support for this program is provided in part from an Erie Arts & Culture Project Grant, made possible by community contributions to the Combined Arts & Cultural Campaign and the Erie Arts Endowment.
