Acclaimed musician to perform BARN benefit show

Composer and musician Maria Newman will come to Bainbridge Island for a special concert benefiting the Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network.

The fundraising show is 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 6.

The program, to be performed in the Great Room at BARN, will include four original works — “The Pied Piper of Hamelin” (trio), “Maskil” (sonata for solo piano / allegro assai), “Pennipotenti” (violin, viola and flute trio) and “Tom Sawyer” (a silent short film with live accompaniment) — for which she’ll lead a program of live music and conversation, featuring her own compositions performed by a group of accomplished musicians, including Scott Hosfield, acclaimed violist and conductor and music director of the Malibu Coast Chamber Orchestra and the Malibu Coast Silent Film Orchestra.

Also performing will be Hal Ott, professor of flute at Central Washington University, and BARN member Chris Eisenberg, pianist.

After the performance, there will be a reception with wine and hors d’oeuvre.

Tickets are $50 for BARN members and $65 for non-members, and are available now at

All profits from the event will benefit BARN.

Newman, the youngest child of nine-time Academy Award-winning movie composer Alfred Newman and actress Martha Louise Montgomery, is a composer of classical music, a violinist, violist and pianist. She has received recognition and commendation from the Annenberg Foundation, the United State Congress and the Mary Pickford Foundation.

Newman’s library of original works represents a range of genres, from large scale orchestral works, works for the ballet, chamber works, choral and vocal works, to new collaborative scores for vintage silent film.
