911 Stewart St.
This joint concert/exhibit will explore the intimate relationship between mother and child through music, text, and paintings from Trung Pham’s “Mother” series of paintings. A pre-concert talk featuring Pham and Les Chanterelles will begin at 3:30 p.m.
Trung Pham is a Vietnamese-born, Seattle-based artist, educator. Phams immigrant experience and religious devotion have profoundly influenced his artistic practice. His miniature sculptures capture the fragility and delicacy of everyday objects that evoke sensibility and feelings of intimacy. His paintings explore theological contents in a series of vividly colored and densely painted organic shapes.
Les Chanterelles is an a cappella ensemble of 3-5 voices, with repertoire spanning the medieval era to the present day. Formed in May 2017 by Emi Ostrom, the group has performed in numerous venues on Vashon Island and Tacoma, including an outdoor Chautauqua Revival Assembly hosted by Vashon Museum, and a performance as the featured ensemble for the 2017 Tacoma Early Music Workshop. The “Music at 9th and Stewart” concert series will be its Seattle debut.
Music At 9th and Stewart is an exciting new concert series at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in downtown Seattle. A portion of all ticket revenue supports nonprofit relief of immigrants, as well as families experiencing food- and housing-insecurity. Nonprofit beneficiaries are Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, The Hope Center, The Church Council of Greater Seattle, and Mary’s Place.
