Duo Gelland Brings Special Sounds to Irving

This October, Irving Middle School will have privileged access to one of Lincoln’s most exciting cultural events of the year. Duo Gelland, an elite European chamber music ensemble, will be paying special attention to Irving during their residency in Lincoln, October 4th-11th.

During the Gellands’ stay, Irving students will be participating in workshops with the ensemble. This will be a unique opportunity for students to have direct interaction with international chamber musicians during their normal music classes. The Gellands will also be leading workshops at various other local schools and programs for at-risk youth.

The entire Irving family is specially invited to come hear the world premiere of Adam Zahller’s Difficult Ferns in a recital by Duo Gelland at the Sheldon Museum of Art (on UNL campus), 7pm Wednesday October 8th. This program will also feature a variety of pieces from the Gellands’ expansive repertoire of rarely performed works for two violins.

Admission to the concert will be free for the entire public, however emphatically so for Aardvarks.

Duo Gelland’s residency in Lincoln has been made possible through the Sheldon Museum of Art, specifically its new Assistant Curator for Education, Erin Poor, who is an Irving alumnus

This October, Irving Middle School will have privileged access to one of Lincoln’s most exciting cultural events of the year. Duo Gelland, an elite European chamber music ensemble, will be paying special attention to Irving during their residency in Lincoln, October 4th-11th.

Duo Gelland, comprised of violinists Martin and Cecilia Gelland, will be bringing their 18th century violins and 21st century musical sensibilities all the way from Strömsund, in the northern region of Sweden. The impetus for their journey is their relationship with Lincoln-based composer and Irving paraeducator Adam Zahller. The Gellands met Zahller in Minneapolis last October, where they performed a short work of his as part of a workshop at the University of Minnesota. This brief encounter sparked an ongoing collaboration.

During the Gellands’ stay, Irving students will be participating in workshops with the ensemble. This will be a unique opportunity for students to have direct interaction with international chamber musicians during their normal music classes. The Gellands will also be leading workshops at various other local schools and programs for at-risk youth.
