The illustrious duo Transient Canvas will be presenting a concert of exciting new works by living composers. Please join us at the “Chapel” for a one-of-a-kind concert featuring bass clarinetist Amy Advocat and percussionist Matt Sharrock.

For over a decade Boston-based contemporary duo Transient Canvas has been thrilling audiences with their “engaging musicality and easy sense of ensemble” (Cleveland Classical) and “superb” performances (Boston Globe). Bass clarinetist Amy Advocat (she/her) and marimbist Matt Sharrock (they/them) relish the creative potential of working with living composers, with the San Francisco Chronicle lauding “the versatile imagination they both display and inspire in others” and a commissioned repertoire of over 90 works. Since 2017, they have hosted their annual paid Composer Fellowship Program that is free and open to composers of all ages. They maintain an active touring schedule with recent performances at the Alba Music Festival, Festival of New American Music, Music on the Edge, New Music Miami, and Red Note New Music Festival, among others. Recent educational residencies include the University of Southern California, University of Miami, New York University, and Longy’s Divergent Studio. They have three albums – Right now, in a second; Sift; and Wired – released on New Focus Recordings. Transient Canvas proudly endorses Henri Selmer Paris and Marimba One.
