IN THIS EDITION:
•Two free concerts tonight: BlueWater Brass Quintet at Cain Park, and keyboard donation recipients in a Piano Cleveland Community Showcase
•Almanac: the salon songs of Reynaldo Hahn, the symphonies of Dmitri Shostakovich, and Giacinto Scelsi’s “autobiography in sound”
We knew that trumpeter Larry Herman was bringing friends to his performance tonight at Cain Park. We didn’t know he was bringing BBQ — in other words, his colleagues in the BlueWater Brass Quintet: trumpeter Neil Mueller, hornist Ken Wadenfuhl, trombonist David Mitchell, and tubist Ken Heinleinwill. The 7:00 pm concert is presented by the Local 4 Music Fund as part of Cain Park’s free Tuesday Evening Chamber Music Series.
Piano Cleveland’s ongoing PianoDays @CLE festival has included a recital series, social gatherings such as a trivia night, and community events. In the latter category, tonight’s free Community Showcase will feature people of all ages and skill levels who have received instruments as part of the organization’s Piano and Keyboard Donation Program. The concert will be held at 7:30 pm at Glick Recital Hall at The Music Settlement on Magnolia Drive.
