Guest Masterclass & Concert: Teddie Hwang, early flute & August Denhard, lute
Saturday, March 3 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
This concert program draws inspiration from historical sources as well as from our contemporary world. The music reflects on aspects of love, childhood fantasies, and life’s struggles, themes that engage us humans regardless of time or geographical boundaries. Between pieces is Teddie’s unique storytelling, a silver thread that takes the audience to places there and here, to times then and now.
Since 1999 Teddie Hwang has dedicated herself completely to historical performance, being fascinated by the timbre and vocal qualities of the traverso. Born in Hong Kong, she has studied with Wilbert Hazelzet and received her Master’s Degree in Historical Flute Performance at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den Haag, Netherlands. In addition, she holds a Bachelor Degree in Music and Germanic Studies from Indiana University, where she studied modern flute with Kathryn Lukas and graduated with high distinction. The first-prize winner of the 2004 Baroque Flute Artist Competition held by the National Flute Association of America, she has also adjudicated for the 2006 Baroque Flute Masterclass Competition.
As a performer on lute, theorbo and Baroque guitar, August Denhard has appeared with Baroque Northwest, Seattle Baroque, the Concord Ensemble, Chicago Music of the Baroque, the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra, Camarata Pacifica Baroque, and many other ensembles specializing in early music. He is an accompanist/coach for 16th and 17th century song at Ars Vocalis Mexico in Morelia, Michoacan. In addition to his activities as a performer, Denhard is the Executive Director of the Early Music Guild of Seattle, the Pacific Northwest’s oldest and largest presenter of early music.
