Chestertown, MD, March 3, 2005 — The Washington College Concert Series—now in its 53rd season—welcomes Sparx, a flute and harp duo from Wilmington, Delaware, to the College's Tawes Theatre, Sunday, March 20. Concert begins at 4 p.m. Single tickets can be purchased at the door, $15.00 for adults and $5.00 for youth 18 and under. Season tickets are available for $50.00 per person in advance or at the box office on performance nights.
The duo of Joan Sparks, flutist, and Anne Sullivan, harpist—Artists in Residence at Wilmington's Tatnall School—brings radiance to a repertoire that includes composers of the 20th Century such as Rodrigo, Saint-Saens, and Faure, and works from time-honored masters such as Mozart, C. P. E. Bach, and Vivaldi. In 1996, composer Lowell Liebermann chose Sparx to perform the World Premier of his Sonata for Flute and Harp, Op. 56. During their 20-year collaboration, Sparks and Sullivan have taken their music from San Diego and New York City, where they won the National Flute Association Chamber Music Competition in 1988 and 1996, to hospitals and healthcare centers where they perform for those who would not otherwise be able to experience the wonderful world of chamber music.
