The “Sounds of Music” House Concert Series celebrates nine years with some of the finest musicians in the world of classical, jazz and other genres, all performing in the beautiful homes of Historic Boston-Edison. This year, our season highlights Latin music across multiple genres.
LATIN CLASSICAL MUSIC WITH PROTEA
Debuting to local acclaim in 2013 at Trinosophes in Detroit, Protea features Dennis Carter on flute, Lisa Raschiatore on clarinet, and Mariah Boucher on piano. The Detroit Metro Times listed them as “a new trio of top-drawer local musicians” and indeed, their musical energy onstage is electric and energetic. Their repertoire is varied, focusing on works that blend jazz, Latin, vocal, and contemporary music influences with classical woodwind standards. They were featured on the “Friday Night Live!” performance series at the Detroit Institute of Arts, collaborated with the Kresge Literary Fellow Terry Blackhawk by presenting her poetry with newly composed music during the 2015 Art X Festival in Detroit, and have been apart of the West Michigan Symphony’s concert series at The Block in Muskegon. They are frequent recitalists, performing at Trinosophes in Detroit and Kerrytown Concert House in Ann Arbor, and often collaborate with additional artists, including vocalists Jennifer Goltz and Carol Ambrogio-Wood, and poets Terry Blackhawk, Marsha Music, and Justin Rogers. They perform and commission new works for their ensemble, and have worked with composers Gabriela Lena Frank, Evan Chambers, and Marilyn Biery. They are active members of the Flute Clarinet Duo Consortium Commissioning Project, and have been apart of commissions for composers Pierre Jalbert and Roger Zare.
This concert will be inside a beautiful home, and weather permitting, guests can have dinner outside in the garden (buffet dinner and drinks served at intermission). This concert will begin at 7:30 p.m., doors open at 7:00 p.m.
