Welcome back to this wonderful musical duo! $10 for members and volunteers, $20 for the general public - pay at the door. Register early as the event will be offered to the public beginning on July 22. Maximum of 40 tickets.
An evening with acoustic jazz duo Paper Moon promises the intimacy of chamber music, the joy and freedom of jazz, the passions of South America, and the deep reflections of a moonlit night.
Katrina Wreede, award-winning composer and violist, is a tireless proponent for viola in jazz and contemporary music. Jazz historian, Leonard Feather, credited her with having “extemporaneous mastery, rare, perhaps unique, in the annals of the viola.” In addition to her rigorous performing schedule, she also founded and directs Composing Together, which brings professional composers into schools to collaborate with young people in discovering their own creative voices.
Leo Cavanagh, guitarist, composer, and arranger, is the author of two nationally recognized books on guitar technique. His CD of Duke Ellington’s music arranged for viola, cello and guitar, received acclaim from Athens to Australia.
Paper Moon’s inaugural CD, Blue Midnight, includes original compositions, Brazilian choros, Argentine tangos, music by Thelonius Monk and from the Great American Songbook.
Experience the conversation between two master musicians with the spontaneity of jazz and the unique colors and textures of their instruments.
