Performing Haydn, Schumann, Shostakovich.

$25/$20 members, 18 and under free

“Neave is actually a Gaelic word meaning bright and radiant, both of which certainly apply to this trio’s music making.”   
                                                                                         – Robert Sherman, WQXR Radio
Since forming in 2010, Neave Trio – violinist Anna Williams, cellist Mikhail Veselov, and pianist Eri Nakamura – has earned enormous praise for its engaging, cutting-edge performances.

Paul Green and his Classical,
Jewish, and Jazz Fusion Band

$25/$20 members, 18 and under free

Paul Green and his band “Two Worlds” present a program that presents Jazz, Klezmer and Sephardic music. The similarities and differences between the three genres are explored, and in some cases, combined! An exciting fusion of styles results from the common ground of artistic passion and fervor. Paul Green has been called a Renaissance man, an extraordinary clarinetist equally at home in classical, jazz and Klezmer music. One of the leading clarinetists of our time, Green began his illustrious career as a 13-year-old guest artist with the New York Philharmonic in a performance of Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts. He hasn’t stopped breaking new ground since.
Combine the intellectual rigor of a law professor with the heart and passion of the consummate musician and you have Paul Green. He is always questioning, forever exploring new ideas. Fortunately for his audiences, Green shares his quest to mine the contributions of other musical genres, particularly Klezmer and other types of Jewish music as well as jazz. And what he has discovered…and offers audiences…is insightful and thought provoking, making him a popular performer and lecturer to music lovers of all ages.

A reception and wine tasting by Domaney’s follows in the Meeting House Gallery.
