Hello Everyone!

I can’t tell you how excited I am to make this announcement. Believe me, it has been a long road already to get to this point. To be working w/ a top notch organization like the Civic Music Association, to get the phenomenal Belin String Quartet involved, to get my extremely talented friend Sam Wells to work w/ me on this show… this has already been a fantastic journey.

Over the past couple of years I have been working on finding a new, unique voice in the music that I perform. I have been fortunate to experience all kinds of music… from the blues of Tina Haase Findlay to the beautiful sounds of Verdi and Britten w/ my operatic work. I’ve been looking for a way to combine all of these influences, and I think this is the first big step in the right direction.

I have included more information on the show below, but please please PLEASE mark your calendars for July 20th and 21st at Sheslow Auditorium for a night of the best music central Iowa has to offer. Actually, it’s just great music, no matter where it’s being produced.

Civic Music Association presents Max Wellman with the Belin Quartet
Friday, July 20 & Saturday, July 21, 2012 – 7:30 pm

(Des Moines, IA) Civic Music Association is proud to open its 2012/13 Season with a concert featuring jazz vocalist Max Wellman and the Belin Quartet for an all new, innovative show debuting the work of composer Sam Wells. This two-night engagement will take place on July 20 & 21, 2012 at 7:30 pm at Drake University’s Sheslow Auditorium.

Jazz vocalist Max Wellman has shared the stage with acts ranging from Grammy-nominee Vanessa Carlton to operatic sensation Simon Estes, building a reputation throughout the midwest for top-notch entertainment. With a voice that has been compared to the likes of Harry Connick Jr., Frank Sinatra, and Michael Buble, Wellman’s concerts have become a staple on the music scene in Iowa.

Wellman has been working with fellow Des Moines native Sam Wells for over a year on this concert, drawing on his classical training to create a new kind of American music… a true hybrid between the classical world and the Great American Songbook, inspired by the classic work of Frank Sinatra and the Hollywood String Quartet. According to Civic Music Association Executive Director, Carrie Clogg, “We are thrilled to combine the superb talents of our Artists-in-Residence the Belin Quartet with Max Wellman performing the debut of compositions from Sam Wells. This concert will feature a blending of the two genres Civic Music Association is proud to present each season…classical and jazz…for an evening you will not want to miss.”
