Chamber ensemble OLEA presents a program celebrating the rich history of American
folk music featuring compositions by Florence Price, Brian Raphael Nabors, and Libby
Larsen. From the Grand Canyon to the streets of New York City, music on this program
takes inspiration from jazz, Appalachian fiddle, ragtime, and more! Audiences will have
the opportunity to get up, dance, and stomp along to music from across the United
States. The program will last approximately 90 minutes.

OLEA is a chamber music ensemble consisting of Kate Kilgus (clarinet), Alayne Wegner
(violin), J Holzen (cello), and Marissa Kerbel (piano). OLEA builds connections through
audience interaction as well as thoughtful selection of repertoire and venue. By
emphasizing performance in community gathering spaces, they present the opportunity
for both performer-audience interaction as well as intercommunity dialogue. Since its
inception in 2021, OLEA has placed new music and creative collaboration at the center
of their artistic vision. OLEA is dually based in Chicago and Cincinnati, presenting
multiple performances in each city every season.
