Join us for Alehouse Sessions, an energetic evening of English 17th-century tavern music. This nontraditional concert will give the audience a window into this tumultuous period through Purcell overtures, English sea shanties, and Scandinavian folk songs thrown in for good measure. These sessions have been hailed as ‘irresistible’ (The Times), ‘superb’ (The Scotsman) and ‘fabulously unrestrained’ (The Guardian), and they have diverted away from the traditional concert model by ‘creating the effect of a late night jamming session’ (BBC Music Magazine). Using their own arrangement of the tunes, the Barokksolistene ‘Alehouse Boys’ will be making their Twin Cities debut in a program combining humor, unrivalled virtuosity, and a flare for improvisation.

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.
