A unique evening of chamber music, with New Mexico-based musicians Mike Schwebke, steelpan, Eric Sewell, violin, Lisa Donald, cello, and Luke Gullickson, piano, who will perform contemporary works from the East and West, plus a commission by composer David Maki. This project, +Pan Quartet, is convened by the NM Tech Performing Arts Series and is part of the WNMU President’s Chamber Music Series.

MIKE SCHWEBKE , Steelpan,  originally from Illinois but now a part-time resident in Socorro, NM, is a recording and performing artist on steelpan and percussion. Mike is the host of the monthly Jazz Trials Jam Session, is a regular performer and guest soloist in world-music groups, steelbands and classical ensembles all over the United States and is an active educator and clinician.  Enabling the creation of new music for steelpan is a huge part of his artistic drive.

ERIC SEWELL, Violin, a Socorro, NM resident, holds degrees in Violin Performance and Musicology from the University of Alabama and Columbia University, and is an alumnus of the Alabama School of Fine Arts. He has performed in orchestras across New Mexico and is the Assistant Principal Second Violinist of the El Paso Symphony Orchestra.

LUKE GULLICKSON , Piano, is a composer and pianist working in the unmapped spaces between folksong, improvisational styles, and contemporary classical composition.

LISA DONALD, Cello, is an Albuquerque native, having played cello in New Mexico for over 20 years. After living and performing in New York City, she returned to Albuquerque to be near family and has been playing with regional orchestras and Opera Southwest, as well as producing and performing in smaller chamber and solo recitals.

DAVID MAKI, Composer, will premiere a new work for +Pan Quartet, specifically for this NM project.  A composer and pianist living and working in the Chicago area, Maki’s music has been performed widely at regional, national and international venues by many diverse ensembles and musicians. His music has been described as “fresh and unusual” by All Music Guide, “vivid, languid, introspective” by American Record Guide and “meditative and beautiful” by Fanfare Magazine.
