Information about the performing artists:

Paul Erhard is a soloist, chamber musician, and improviser. He premiered the Subramaniam Double Concerto for violin and double bass with the composer on violin and the CU Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gary Lewis. An active chamber musician, his collaborations with the Grammy-winning Takács Quartet include a 2019 performance of Schubert’s Trout Quintet at Lincoln Center. TIME ART – SPACE ART is his newest venture into improvisation, drawing upon his background in classical and jazz music, as well as Indian raga, as a means of collaborating with dancers, painters, photographers, and poets. Paul is the professor of double bass at the CU Boulder College of Music.
Joshua Halpern has appeared around the world as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral principal cellist. He has collaborated with artists including Jonathan Biss, Gary Hoffman, Kim Kashkashian, Anthony McGill, and Itzhak Perlman. In 2019 he served as guest principal cello of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, and in 2020 served as cellist with the Rolston Quartet.
Josh studied at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia under Carter Brey and Peter Wiley. As an undergraduate at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, Josh studied with Desmond Hoebig and won the Rice Concerto Competition.
In 2018, Josh curated a solo tour across Colorado to bring classical music to unexpected places. Since then he has continued bringing music to unfamiliar venues around the country, fostering connection and conversation with all types of people along the way. The Cultural Caravan is his latest venture.
Catherine Hunziker is the mbira player for ZiMbira, a 10-piece genre-defying band playing music steeped in the traditional music of Southern Africa with traditional and modern instrumentation. Their sound is a powerful blend of vocals, traditional African instruments, drumset, and electric and bass guitars. The African instruments include mbira (African thumb piano), marimba, and hosho (gourd shakers). The band is at home both on large festival stages like Arise, Zimfest, Boulder Creekfest, Sounds of Centerra, Chapungu Concert Series, and Louisville Concerts in the Park; and on cabaret stages like the Fox Theatre in Boulder CO, Ophelia’s in Denver, The Lariat in Buena Vista, and more.
Andrew Wilder is pursuing a DMA in Guitar Performance at the University of Colorado Boulder. He earned a BM from Columbus State University, an MM from University of Kentucky, and Artist Diplomas from Istituto Musicale Della Valle D’Aosta in Aosta, Italy and Conservatorio Svizzera Italiana in Lugano, Switzerland. He has won top prizes at the Guitar Competition of Society of American Musicians, the International Tennessee Guitar Competition, and the University of Louisville International Guitar Competition.
Andrew’s particular passion for Baroque and Classical music has motivated him to research and transcribe pieces for solo guitar and chamber ensembles, especially works by J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, Mozart, and Haydn. This led him to perform the complete lute works of J.S. Bach on the guitar from memory, a program which he has presented in recitals in the United States and Mexico. Wilder recently released an album of the cycle entitled Bach: Complete Lute Works on Guitar.
