Hidden Aria

Multi-instrumentalist Peter Nelson-King and guitarist Mark Hilliard Wilson are coming together for a unique, adventurous program of contemporary works and improvisation. The pairing of classical guitar with brass instruments, voice and keyboards is an unlikely one, but the musicians have found brilliant contemporary works that explore the fullest sonic possibilities of the featured instruments, and explore even further with an extended, genre-defying improvisation on the second half. Featuring a world premiere work by Carson Cooman written especially for Peter Nelson-King as well as works by Kirk-Evan Billet, Frank Campo, Donald Crockett, and Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon, this one-night concert will be an unforgettable musical event.

Peter Nelson-King is active playing trumpet and piano in various groups and events in Seattle, and teaches those instruments at the Kirkland Academy of Music. He is also a composer as well as a published poet and music writer, and self-published the historical poetry anthology The New Pagans.  

Mark Hilliard Wilson is known for his work creating a space over the last 23 years for classical guitarists to make music together in the Seattle Guitar Orchestra and his performances as cathedral guitarist at St. James Cathedral in Seattle. He has toured across Canada and the US, as well as along the Camino de Santiago and throughout Catalonia.
