November 14 at 7:30 p.m. | Virtual Concert
Austin Chamber Music Center presents Bach Remix as part of their Chamber Connect: Fall Sessions series of online performances. Weaving in and out of expected and unexpected sounds, this program pairs gems of Bach's mastery with ethereal works by Erik Satie, Belinda Reynolds, Ivan Trevino, and Philip Glass.
Michelle Schumann and Thomas Burritt will share music and conversation via Zoom, including a live chat with the audience.
Thomas Burritt, percussion
Michelle Schumann, piano
There are storied educators, and there are dynamic performers, and then there are those who are destined to be both. Always in search of new music and new ways to share it with others, Thomas Burritt is today’s percussionist. He has received degrees from Ithaca College School of Music (BM – Education and Performance), Kent State University (MM), and Northwestern University (DMA). Active in the creation and performance of new music for percussion, Burritt has built a reputation in chamber music, as a percussion soloist, and as a concert marimbist. He has performed regularly at the Leigh Howard Stevens International Marimba Seminar and was a featured faculty performer at the 2007 and 2009 Zeltsman Marimba Festival.

Hailed for her “sensitive, flexible, and tempestuous dexterity” (Fanfare Magazine), pianist Michelle Schumann has built a reputation for evocative and moving performances. Since 2006, Michelle has served as Artistic Director of the Austin Chamber Music Center, where she “is fearlessly expanding our definition of chamber music” (Austin American-Statesman). Her brand of performance includes an enthusiastic interplay with the audience and her trademark includes bringing diverse music together under a blanket of narrative events.
