Brazilian-American vocalist, composer, and pianist Clarice Assad and her world-renowned father Sergio Assad (guitar) will perform a jazz-inspired program primarily featuring music from their first recording together called Reliquia. In a review of this recording, All About Jazz states, “Clarice constantly captivates, whether singing in Portuguese, delivering wordless vocals, or taking to the piano bench, and Sergio, likewise, manages to seduce with his every gesture on guitar.” Clarice’s rising reputation as a composer-performer who comfortably straddles the worlds of jazz, classical, and traditional Brazilian rhythms is quickly catching up with her father’s international prominence as one of the world’s great guitarists. This concert, the first ever Twin Cities performance by this duo, will be a testament to the bonds forged through birth and life, continually strengthened in every small and large gesture of love that takes place between a parent and child.

Join us at Aria for a high energy evening featuring Colin Currie, “the world’s finest and most daring percussionist” (The Spectator, 2013). The Guardian highlights his “athletic percussionism, compulsive showmanship and deep musicality.” His Schubert Club Mix program will feature a wide range of instruments and includes music based on stories by Gabriel García Márquez – interspersed with readings of the texts. Currie is as mesmerizing to watch as he is to listen to – and his broad array of percussion instruments make a fascinating theatrical set.

Join us for this final concert of the Mix season in a brand new venue for this series, Summit Brewery, for a lively evening with New York ensemble Third Sound in their Twin Cities debut performance. Formed in 2015 by composer Patrick Castillo, the ensemble is comprised of Sooyun Kim, flute; Romie de Guise-Langlois, clarinet; Karen Kim, violin; Michael Nicolas, cello; Orion Weiss, piano; and Patrick Castillo, composer. They will bring a mixed program of music including works by Brahms, Schoenberg and a world premiere by Patrick Castillo. In forming the ensemble with his wife Karen Kim, Patrick remarks, “We wanted to assemble a group of musicians whom we could trust with the broad sweep of chamber repertoire, to take everything from Mozart to Schoenberg, to stuff with the ink still wet equally seriously, with total curiosity, and absolutely kill it, no matter what the program.”
