Lets try to combine forces with what the Short North Stage has going on. Short North Stage, a professional theater company, is performing the musical Sunday in the Park With George in the theater. The set reproduces the painting that inspired the musical: Georges Seurats A Sunday on La Grande Jatte 1884, depicting people in a Paris park.

It is so perfect for this painting. . . . I am quite sure Schoenberg has never been played in the middle of the Seurat painting. The Short North Chamber Players include Niwa on violin; violinists Olev Viro and Ken Matsuda; and cellist Luis Biava, all members of the symphony. Other players in the chamber ensemble are violist Belinda Reuning Burge, a member of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and cellist Michael Carrera, who teaches at Ohio University in Athens. Theyll also perform Spheres of Influence, written by Denison University composer Ching-chu Hu and introduced in June. Hus work considers how identity is influenced by those around us. In writing this piece, Im very cognizant of the influences on me, the music I love, the music I studied, Hu said. When he learned that the concert was being organized, Hu contacted Viro and noted that he had just written Spheres of Influence and that it happened to be for a string sextet. His piece was soon added to the program.
