DEAN BROWNROUT MODERN/CONTEMPORARY SPONSORING BUFFALO CHAMBER PLAYERS 8TH SEASON

Buffalo, NY -- Dean Brownrout Modern/Contemporary is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the Buffalo Chamber Players 2014-15 season at Buffalo Seminary.

The Buffalo Chamber Players is Buffalo's preeminent chamber music ensemble; the group has been presenting innovative concert events performed by our region's finest musicians since its formation in 2007.

Dean Brownrout Modern/Contemporary is dedicated to establishing relationships with clients to realize the purchase and/or sale of fine artwork. The company specializes in representing artists and works with a connection to Western New York.

In announcing the support, Dean Brownrout said, "The sponsorship reaffirms our commitment to the BCP. We collaborated on two enthusiastically received cross-disciplinary art events with the group, and I'm also a past board member. We recognize the value of the ensemble as part of the rich Western New York arts scene."

Brownrout's involvement with the BCP included presenting the visual art component of a fully staged performance of Igor Stravinsky's A Soldier's Tale, with sets and costumes based on 1951 sketches by Martha Visser't Hooft; he also collaborated on Olivier Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time, presented with paintings by Dean Brownrout Modern/Contemporary artist Catherine Parker.

Formed by Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra violist Janz Castelo, the BCP is comprised of members of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and other distinguished area musicians. The Buffalo Chamber Players' mission is to enhance the public's perception of chamber music while promoting the city of Buffalo as an inspiring place to live, work, and play.

The 2014-15 season opens Wednesday, September 17 at 7:30 p.m., with Terry Riley's seminal In C and the 150th anniversary of Brahms's String Sextet in G, Op. 36. The program also includes works by BCP composers-in-residence Rob Deemer and Caroline Mallonée.
