And Now for Something Completely Happy
The 2020s haven’t been a super joyful time, so the Sunday, Nov. 21, concert called Cafe Jazz, presented by Close Encounters With Music, sounds like just the right mood brightener.
The late afternoon show, onstage at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, Mass., has happy music with soul and a spine. The program will include Paul Schoenfield’s Café Music for piano, violin and cello; Claude Bolling’s “Suite for Cello and Jazz Trio;” the American Master, George Gershwin, with his “Three Preludes for Piano,” which has hints of “American in Paris” and “Rhapsody in Blue;” and Beethoven’s “Romance No. 2 in F Major for Violin and Piano.”
Adding a snappy modern touch will be an appearance by Christylez Bacon, the first Hip-Hop artist to be featured at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
The Nov. 21 concert begins at 4 p.m. and ends at 5:45 p.m, Tickets range from $28 to $52.Find out more at https://mahaiwe.org/event/close-encounters-with-music-cafe-music-jazz-ra....
