Music at Mesa presents enhakē and faculty ensemble Rimrock Winds

A Colorado Mesa University alumna returns to campus with her stunning musical group this month. On Jan. 17, Music at Mesa will present enhakē, a trio of musicians that includes CMU alumna Eun-Hee Park.

With an electrifying repertoire of chamber music spanning classical to contemporary masterworks, Fanfare magazine has praised enhakē for its “playing of the very highest caliber.” BBC Music Magazine said the group has a “keen instinct for exciting programs.” The group’s 2010 Carnegie Hall recital Made in America was lauded for its strong rhythmic integrity, balance, intonation and musicality.

Park is the quartet’s pianist. After completing her bachelor’s degree at CMU, she pursued further education at Florida State University and Oklahoma City University. She is currently the staff pianist at the Hartt School and is on faculty at Westport School of Music, both in Connecticut.

Tickets for enhakē are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, faculty and staff and $5 for students. They are available by calling the CMU Box Office at 970.248.1604.

Please note that the Rimrock Winds concert, scheduled for Feb. 5, has been canceled.

Mesa Experimental Theatre season continues with Anna in the Tropics

Colorado Mesa University’s Theatre Arts program is gearing up to present the second Mesa Experimental Theatre (MET) play of the 2015-16 season. Anna in the Tropics, written by Nilo Cruz, will run in the Moss Performing Art Center’s MET on Feb. 11–13. The play is directed by theatre major Danielle Carrillo.

Set in Southern Florida during the late 1920s, Anna in the Tropics describes the lives of a set of Cuban-Americans working at a cigar factory. The owners and employees spend their time reveling in the memory of their native Cuba, discussing fine literature and creating their own real-life dramatics. The 2003 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Anna in the Tropics explores the complex nature of immigration, a poignant topic today.

The play is rated PG-13. Tickets are available online, or by calling the CMU Box Office at 970.248.1604.
