Kewa Ensemble to Perform at GNC

Composer Erno Dohnanyi

On Wednesday, March 20 at 12:10 p.m., the Free Admission Glendale Noon Concerts program will be performed live in the sanctuary of Glendale City Church, 610 E. California Ave. in Glendale.

The program features the Kewa Ensemble: violinist Jacqueline Suzuki, violist Marsh Marsh, and cellist Clement Chow. The program includes J.S. Bach’s Selections from 3 Part Inventions arranged for string trio and a selection of the work of Erno Dohnanyi.

Jacqueline Suzuki, violin, is a longtime member of the Long Beach and Santa Barbara Symphonies. She initiated and curates a twice monthly chamber music series, the Free Admission Glendale Noon Concerts. A current schedule may be seen at

A native of San Francisco, she began her earliest chamber music studies on scholarship at the San Francisco Conservatory. She has performance degrees from the Mannes College of Music (BM), where she studied with William Kroll, and the California Institute of the Arts (MFA).

As a Los Angeles freelancer, she has performed with many ensembles and in many genres – from rock, jazz, Latin and Arabic to playing in the pit for the Bolshoi Ballet and onstage with the Three Tenors. She has recorded with diverse artists: Snoop Dogg, Neil Sedaka, Leonard Cohen, Whitney Houston, Bocelli, Lalo Schifrin, McCoy Tyner, Placido Domingo and many others. She appears on recordings by the Long Beach, Santa Barbara and Pacific Symphonies. She has spent summers at the Peter Britt, Oregon Coast, Carmel Bach and Cabrillo Festivals and has performed in a string quartet “in residence” on a raft trip down the Green River in Utah. Tours have taken her many times to Japan, Taiwan, Mexico, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and throughout the U.S.

Patrick Marsh received his bachelor’s degree in viola performance from the University of Michigan and is currently attending The Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins as a viola major.

As a violist, Marsh was one of the founding members of Clemens Quartet, a string quartet performing and competing throughout the United States. As a violinist, Marsh is a former concertmaster of The Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. His performance opportunities have taken him across the United States, Europe and St. Petersburg Russia.

Though classical music is the foundation of his technique, he can be found branching out into the jazz and rock genres. Marsh plays a blue Fourness Fuse 5-string electric violin and runs it through a Line6 Helix for effects, and two Gallien Krueger bass amps in stereo.

Marsh can also be heard as a featured soloist in such feature films as “Kids vs. Monsters” and “Pali Road” as well as such video games as “Relics of Gods” and Disney’s “Cartooniverse.”

Clement Chow has studied at Rice University and Cleveland Institute of Music where he received his Bachelor and Master of Music. He has been to music festivals around the world that include the Aspen Music Festival, Pacific Music Festival in Japan, as well as Schleswig Holstein Music Festival in Germany. He made his solo debut with the Houston Symphony at the age of 16. He has also studied with some of the greatest chamber music groups around the world. The groups include Tokyo, Cleveland, Alban Berg, and Amadeus String Quartets.
