The summer garden oasis behind a magnificent 4,700 sq. ft. Italian Renaissance mansion will be the stage for the upcoming Palmer Woods Music in Homes concerts on Friday and Saturday, June 21 and 22 at 8 pm. Flowers, music and fabulous home! An enchanting combination.
This virtuosic ensemble — featuring guitarist A. Spencer Barefield, violinists/violists Jannina Barefield Norpoth and Curtis Stewart, and bassist John-Paul Norpoth — explores jazz, classical and world music. They will perform works composed by 2010 Kresge Arts Fellow Barefield, as well as selections from legendary jazz composers such as Joe Henderson, Dizzy Gillespie, Oliver Nelson, John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk, Duke Ellington, and Billy Strayhorn, as well as classical works by Spanish composers Enrique Granados and Manuel de Falla, Argentine tango composer Astor Piazzolla, and the challenging works of Niccolò Paganini.
This will be an out-of-this-world Summer Solstice concert — performed by four amazing, super string players — three of them from New York (in their 20s and 30s), who are garnering fame performing the works of contemporary composers on the stages of Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and Symphony Space.
A delicious array of food, sweets and beverages is included. Tickets at palmerwoods.org
