Take 4 Presents: Water

buy tickets button

Take 4 presents a program of live string music and synchronous film that explores the many faces of the Kennebec River and our collective relationships with water.

Through a combination of live music and synchronous film, this program reflects on our community’s dependence on water as a resource, commodity, and defining feature of Maine’s landscape and culture. The program considers the strength, vulnerability, and transience of our water systems while celebrating the beauty and importance of Maine’s water landscapes in all seasons. The performance will explore the natural and human impacts that transform the Kennebec River and inform our understanding of water. The film component of the program was collected and designed by Luke Fatora to pair with selected musical pieces on the program. The performance will include Take 4’s original arrangements of music ranging from traditional Scottish and Irish tunes to Argentinean tango, Spanish lullabies, and Italian motets.

Take 4 Biography

Take 4 is an ensemble consisting of violinists Josie and Sophie Davis and Luke Fatora, and violist Colin Wheatley. Based in Midcoast Maine, the group performs their own arrangements of music ranging from traditional Scottish and Irish tunes to Argentinean tango, Spanish lullabies, Viennese waltzes, and Italian motets. The musicians met as students at Oberlin Conservatory, however after graduating spent close to a decade pursuing further studies, teaching, performing, and traveling separately in the US and abroad. After settling in Maine in 2019, they began to play together more frequently, experimenting with arranging music to fit their instrumentation. As the pandemic made collaboration with other artists more challenging, they formed Take 4 and have since performed throughout Midcoast Maine, created a number of recorded projects, and written and performed a variety of their own string arrangements.
