Hey Music Lovers,
Here's some choice gigs for you this week, and I will have more soon.
The first two are from my piano teacher, who happenes to be Earshot's NW Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year, Jovino Santos Neto from Rio De Janeiro. See Jovino's website (linked to above) for a more complete write up of these shows.
Friday, March 4 at 8 PM at Kirkland Performance Center
The Waters Speak
Keith Bear, storyteller, Gary Stroutos, flute, Jovino Santos Neto, composer, pianist; Corey Moraes, dancer
With percussionist Larry Mahlis, and the Saint Helens String Quartet
Performed by an ensemble of Native and non-Native artists, The Waters Speak is a celebration of the Spirit of Place, that intimately personal and yet universal connection of a people and the land they call home. Drawing from the tribal traditions of Native peoples from the Plains to the Pacific Coast, this is a mystical performance of songs, dances and stories, some of which have been handed down for hundreds of years. This performance is a rare occasion for non-Native audiences to hear sacred stories and songs through special permission of the artists and their tribes.
Tickets are $26.00, adult; $10.00 youth; $24.00 seniors
