Friendship and Classical Music: Carson High grad to perform at the Brewery Arts Center | Carson City Nevada News
June 27, 2022 – 7:00 p.m.
Monday, June 27 at 7 p.m., Chyornii & Dorado will present a program of classical chamber music at the Brewery Arts Center in Carson City. Admission will not be charged, but virtual and cash gratuities will be available and encouraged.
Chyornii & Dorado has been selected to perform at the International Clarinet Association conference in Reno. Although this conference is closed to the public, we wanted to make sure we had the opportunity to share this music with the community – especially since this is the very community that I am from. The program will feature music from Mozart to emerging composers like Isaac Smith. Smith, a Sacramento native, wrote this piece for our album and said “working with (C&D) has been one of the most fruitful and rewarding experiences of (his) life.”
Chyornii & Dorado was founded when Carson-born saxophonist Jessica Dodge met clarinetist Anthony Aguayo while in graduate school at the University of Oregon.
While the saxophone and clarinet aren’t a common ensemble, C&D has created music to play by commissioning new works from composers and transcribing (stealing!) music from other ensembles. They released their debut album Black & Gold in November 2019 and patiently waited for the end of the pandemic to perform the music from this project in front of a live audience.
