BLING! (Beth Fleenor & Denney Goodhew)
DENNEY GOODHEW CELEBRATION AND FAREWELL CONCERT
Chapel Performance Space / Good Shepherd Center
Screaming silence in a whirling pool of stillness, BLING! formed in 2004 to bring together mentor and student in a performance dynamic that investigates and activates new levels of awareness. The duo, featuring Goodhew on piano, and Fleenor on clarinet, explores spontaneously composed chamber music, with a commitment to ensemble intention and focused energy. BLING! opens itself to the space and audience to magnify subtleties in texture, motion and color, and their inherent rhythm, melody and harmonic form - a meditation on presence and being.
This special event featured a second set with guest Brad Gibson (drums), in a farewell celebration for Goodhew who is leaving Seattle in September.
