Announcing the Fall 2010 Music at the Court Series

Boston Court Performing Arts Center presents the 2010 Fall Music Series featuring a mix of performances.  The series begins October 3 in the Marjorie Branson Performance Space at Boston Court Performing Arts Center, 70 North Mentor Avenue.

“We have one of the most diverse schedule of music in our history.” says Boston Court Executive Director, Michael Seel, “We think audiences are going to be intrigued by some things they have never seen before mixed in with some familiar faces and sounds.”

The series opens Sunday, October 3 with Bharatanatyam.  A rare gathering of artists who studied directly with Balasaraswati (1918-1984) and her family.  Bharatanatyam is a sacred dance form that was a temple ritual within southern India for centuries until it was banned in the 1900’s.

 

On Saturday, October 16th, at 8 & 9:30 PM The Jazz Bakery Movable Feast features “Perfect Circularity.” Woodwind specialist Gary Foster and bassist Putter Smith are the perfect fit for this intimate listening space. Duos present the most vulnerable side of jazz artists.  In this case, the virtuosity shared by Smith and Foster makes “Perfect Circularity” an evening to treasure.

Stephen and Katerina of Mojácar Flamenco return to Boston Court on Friday, October 22 for an intimate evening of flamenco cante jondo theatrical works, including the premieres of some exciting new pieces.

 

On Friday, October 23 Bassist Tom Peters returns to Boston Court to score another silent film live! This time it’s Alfred Hitchcock’s first thriller, The Lodger.

 

 

Grammy winning composer, arranger and jazz pianist Bill Cunliffe returns to Boston Court on Friday, November 12.  Cunliffe has gathered nationwide attention with his innovative and swinging recordings and compositions.

 

On Saturday, November 13, Robert Thies and Damjan Krajacic bring their reinvented flute and piano duet to the Court. Passionate music that blends Classical, Jazz, Cuban, Brazilian, and Eastern European sounds.

Rounding out the series on November 15 Brasil Guitar Duo brings their synchronicity and effortless performance style to Boston Court. Equally at home on a Classical or a World Music series, the Duo’s innovative programming features a seamless blend of traditional and Brazilian works, resulting in a full global touring schedule and numerous critically acclaimed recordings.
