Music Live at One features romantic works on Tuesday

SEQUIM — Music Live at One returns to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on Tuesday with a program centered on music by romantic composers.

Heidi Fivash, a classical pianist and soprano, will perform at 1 p.m. at the church at 525 N. Fifth Ave., for the 30-minute show featuring works by Johannes Brahms, Amy Beach and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

Tickets are $10 at the door or in advance from the church office, which is open from 9 a.m. to noon Mondays through Thursdays.

Fivash, an experienced pianist, vocalist and instrumentalist, grew up writing rock songs and playing guitar and singing with Seattle bands and has continued to expand her musical palette in recent years.

She currently works as the piano accompanist at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, teaches piano and voice at Port Angeles Music Academy, and is studying with the Music for Healing and Transitions Program to become a certified music practitioner in therapeutic music.

Her program features Franz Liszt’s “Liebersträum S. 541, No. 3,” or “Dreams of Love” set to the poem “Notturno” by Ferdinand Freiligrath; Amy Beach’s “Ah, Love, but a day!” based on Robert Browning poetry; Reynaldo Hahn’s “À Chloris” from 20 Mélodies, Book II; Josef Suk’s “Song of Love;” Tchaikovsky’s Pas de Deux from “The Nutcracker,” Op. 71 on piano; and Brahms’ Intermezzo No. 2 in A Major, Op. 118.

Fivash said Brahms composed six pieces for Clara Schumann, who was married to composer Robert Schumann, one of his friends.

“His love for her can also be heard in this very romantic Intermezzo,” she said.

While it’s not Christmas time anymore, Fivash said Tchaikovsky’s piece from “The Nutcracker” “stands well on its own and is too good to be limited to only a certain time of year.”

More on Fivash

Fivash holds a bachelor’s in music composition at Western Washington University, where she earned several awards and scholarships including the Presser Scholarship, awarded to just one outstanding music major each year.

Following college, she worked for several years as a piano tuner and technician.

In 2016, Fivash released an indie rock album, “Out With The Old” as Heidi Five Ash.

She also has had several art pieces performed in the Seattle area, including two works for string quartet that were finalists in the Seattle Composers Alliance Call For Scores concerts.

A new piano solo piece is set to premiere in April with the Ladies Musical Club, too.

Along with these projects, she’s performed with the Sammamish Symphony Orchestra as a violist, the Peninsula Singers as a soprano, and the Peninsula College Jazz Ensemble as a pianist.

She also performs voice and piano at local retirement communities.

The next shows include Buttercup Lane on March 12 and Anson Ka Lik Sin on April 9.
