The chamber music association Camerata Pacifica starts its 2010-11 season with concerts at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, in Hahn Hall on the campus of the Music Academy of the West, 1070 Fairway Road in Santa Barbara.

On hand to play a varied and exciting list of five works will be Camerata stalwarts Warren Jones on piano, Catherine Leonard on violin and Ani Aznavoorian on cello. The featured artist in four of the five works will be percussionist Ji Hye Jung.

The program will include the Sonata in A Major, BWV 1032, for Flute & Marimba by Johann Sebastian Bach; Velocities for marimba by American Joseph Schwantner; Mariel for cello and marimba by Argentine composer (of Romanian Jewish extraction) Osvaldo Golijov; the World Premier of Violin and Marimba by Chinese American Bright Sheng; and the Trio in F-Minor for Piano, Violin and Cello, Opus 65 by Antonin Dvorák.

The 1 p.m. performances at Hahn will consist of only the pieces by Schwantner, Golijov and Sheng. The full 7:30 p.m. program will be repeated at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12 in Temple Beth Torah in Ventura, at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 14 at the Huntington Library in San Marino and at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16 in Zipper Hall in Los Angeles.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
