Every Body Humboldt

Yoga Class with Sara Matik 

Taking our focus from the “Towering: Art Inspired by the Redwoods” exhibit, we’ll move through a grounding and relaxing yoga session, exploring how we can feel both strong and easeful simultaneously. This practice is slow-paced, gentle, and fully accessible for all bodies and levels of experience. Chairs, props and many modifications will be available. Class will close with an optional short Redwoods-inspired printmaking project.

Every Body Humboldt

Yoga Class with Sara Matik

Inspired by Mary Robinson’s “Confluence” exhibit, we’ll bring together the many ways our bodies move (or don’t!) with the many ways to make a yoga pose. This slow-pace, gentle and fully accessible yoga class will be guided and have a focus on exploration and relaxation for all bodies and levels of experience. There’s no wrong way to have a body and no wrong way to move it! Chairs, props and many modifications will be available. Class will close with an optional short collage project, inspired by the exhibit.


Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival 

Friday, August 10, 7:00pm

Morris Graves Museum of Art, Eureka

Suggested Donation: $20

The Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival is an organization that brings professional classical musicians from around the world to present concerts in Northern California and Oregon. Founded in 2011, the group has presented over 200 free public concerts, featured dozens of musicians from across the United States, Canada, and Europe, and produced annual educational programs for youth and rural schools.

            This summer musicians will return to present seven public concerts in Eureka, Hyampom, Weaverville, Coffee Creek, Redding and Willow Creek.

            The festival will kick off with a concert at the Morris Graves Museum on Friday, August 10. The following weekend of August 17, 18, and 19 will offer a deep dive into several masterpieces of chamber music, including Johannes Brahms' Quintet for Strings, Op. 111, as well as music by Mozart and Shostakovich.

            The festival will welcome back violinist Daniel Rouslin, an established performer who is professor of music at Willamette University. Joining him will be cellist Joseph Howe from Boulder, Colorado, violists Stephen Fine form Gainesville, Florida, and Alex Volonts from Santa Rosa. Festival director Ian Scarfe will perform at the piano, and Trinity County musicians Ellen McGehee, Karla Avila, and Jacob Johnson will also join the mix.

            The second weekend of August 24, 25, and 26 will present a series of “Summer Serenades” - three outdoor concerts at beautiful shaded venues in the woods. The music will celebrate the spirit of summer, with a larger ensemble comprised of string orchestra, clarinet, oboe, and harpsichord. Works featured will include baroque concertos by Bach and Vivaldi, classical serenades by Mozart and Mendlessohn, and the world premiere of a new work by composer Max Stoffregen.

            Stoffregen will join the festival as the 2018 Composer-in-Residence. This new annual program will offer composers an opportunity to join the festival, participating in an artistic retreat in Hyampom, working alongside musicians, and to have a new work be performed during the festival. Stoffregen has spent lots of time in scenic wilderness areas such as the Trinity Alps, describing his connection to nature as “a passion and priority...our natural world is a potent inspiration, and many of my compositions are inspired by the landscapes I have immersed myself in.”

            The festival welcomes all of the community to its concerts, which are designed to be inspiring for music lovers of all kinds, regardless of their familiarity with “classical” music. Scarfe and other musicians always tell stories of the composers and the music, and share details from the music that make for a deeper and more fun experience. All concerts are free and open to the public, but with the hope that audiences prepared to make a donation showing their support of this deserving organization.

            Be sure to visit for updated programs, schedules, and a host of fun photos, videos, stories, and other tidbits!
