Tucson residents Elena Galbraith, Sandy Schwoebel and Marie Sierra formed Nota Bene in 2009 and have been performing unique and varied programs of chamber music ever since. Soloists in their own right, these three friends and colleagues have collected a wide variety of music for soprano, flute and piano in various combinations from the Baroque, Classical and French Romantic eras, which they love sharing. However, they take special pleasure in introducing often-overlooked 20th Century music at concerts, much to the audience members’ enjoyment and surprise!
Known for their rapport with audiences and a wide range of musical programming, their concerts include brief chats about the music as well as the composers and their lives and times. Surprises are always in store, and
Elena, Sandy and Marie have also been known to throw on boas for one piece
and play percussion on the next!
In 2008 William Bradley Roberts wrote the song cycle Wit and Wisdom for Nota Bene, based on the writings of
Dorothy Parker. The trio recorded this charming and witty group of songs on their 2011 debut CD, called simply Nota Bene. You may purchase Nota Bene at Amazon.com by clicking the button below. Their second CD, Delizioso, will be officially released on November 23 and Nota Bene is celebrating its release by touring throughout southwest Arizona performing concerts in Tucson, Green Valley, Mesa and Phoenix.
